Would that other forum be the even more sleepy tres chords forum? Just curious, because it seems the moderators could merge these two into one forum.

I've been playing the following lately:

Ripple, Grateful Dead
Jack Straw, Dead
Say Goodbye, Dave Matthews
Stay (acoustic), U2
Strange Condition, Pete Yorn
7 Holes, John Doe

I gotta get me an electric guitar one of these days.
Yes, an electric is a necessity. Despite what the puritanical acoustics say...

Just figured out some bridge-work in my latest song. It's coming along well.


True Love Waits- Radiohead :up:
Immigrant Song- Led Zeppelin
Too High- The Music
Mothers of the Disappeared (attempting to tab an alternate version... sounds interesting).

In a Little While

That's the song that finally got me up off my ass and motivated to learn how to play the guitar. I still play it frequently but it does sound a bit thin on an acoustic.

It depends what type of strings you have for In A Little While. In my opinion, it is best played on a steel-string acoustic... but then again, so are most things.


Rebel, Rebel- David Bowie

An interesting new rhythm part for my song. Actually I just spent the last three hours playing/writing new material.

Good times :up:
All I play is steel string acoustic. I probably just got spoiled from playing a friends Casino. Elixers help too, easier to slide.
Radiohead - 'Blow Out'
The Cure - 'A Forest'
The Cure - 'Killing An Arab'
Airbag- Radiohead.

Highly suggested. Very simple song, but a very satisfying octave progression. There's a decent tab on atease web that is a good start if anyone's interested in learning one of my favourite radiohead songs.

my band (me, another guitarist and a drummer) are trying to perfect 11 O'Clock and Sunday Bloody Sunday. It's damn hard to get it just right, i tell you!

Yes, I do believe there's something wrong with me.

Manic Street Preachers - 'If You Tolerate This'
U2 - 'Mothers of the Disappeared'
U2 - 'Stay'
U2 - 'Sunday Bloody Sunday'
Smashing Pumpkins - 'Disarm'
Manic Street Preachers - 'The Everlasting'

Thunderstruck (trying riff) - AC/DC = pink hurts
Top Bottom
