John Cage’s wonderful song, 4′33″.

What is YOUR favorite song to play on guitar

Sorry my bad

rpm_pseud0name's avatar

I can also play John Cage’s 4’33’’ on the piano, saxophone, trumpet, violin, harp, & didgeridoo. I’m now practicing it on the spoons.

Done. Mastered it. Can now add the spoons to the list.

Yes we all know who John Cage is.

When learning guitar keep it simple and work your way up. The Strokes are some good, easy guitar tabs.

Gosh that’s a hard question to answer… I’ve been doing a lot of classical lately…

I am learning Master of puppets, pretty straight forward for the most part the hardest parts I think are timing,tempo and execution of the chords, need tight rhythm. The solos will be the real hard part

It is a pretty well known song if you are into metal so there is many good tabs and videos out there.!v=enI7KgACn5M&feature=related

Also when you say “good” I have no ideal what you mean by that really…..and depends on what you like and what is comfortable for you.

My favorite? I’m currently really enjoying the everloving hell out of a personal interpretation of Erik Mongrain’s “Airtap!”.

As for generally, I can’t not love playing “Crazy Train.” It’s just so fun.

I like Fade to Black by Metallica. Other good ones are Eyes of an Angel by Impellitteri, Secrets by Hammerfall, Katherine Wheel by H.I.M., and Endless Sacrifice by Dream Theatre.

Greensleeves. It’s a timeless classic. First song I learned to play. Do it.

Pipeline by The Ventures. Or Wipeout. Just some surf music in general. It’s pretty much the only stuff I can play on guitar.

Johnny Cash songs. Simple and great.

The Beast and the Harlot is a crazy awesome song. (Avenged Sevenfold) I’m still trying to master the solo.

“Freight Train” as played by Elizabeth (Libba) Cotten. I learned it on 12-string and was able to adapt the style to several other songs in my repertoire.
