My band have opened with Big News. Try 7-Jam... a great 7/8 groove that just melts your face off when you nail it. Impossible to play and not smile!
You're right about some of the deceptively tricky stuff. Dragonfly, Swollen Goat and Big Fat Pig all have moments of Maines at his best.
Keep it up mate, good stuff.
