Fun songs

Discussion in 'Miscellaneous [BG]' started by Mr.QuakQuak, Aug 9, 2003.

  1. Hey guys I'm finally getting my butt down to my friends house to jam ! Thing is I've been focusing so much on my lessons and other lines I've made up that I can't think of any songs to have us play to besides what we can throw together. So I ask of you, great TB'ers !!! Lend me a hand please :D ?? All I would like are some easy-to-moderate songs that would be fun to play while we are together. Thanks.

    Edit: Almost forgot. Anything from old metal and rock to funk and jazz would be fine.

    Hey Joe is perhaps the most fun song to play however it is very dangerous as it can breakdown into an endless jam. It can drag on and on and on and on etc. Anyway other songs...where is my mind-Pixies, teen spirit-Nirvana is pretty fun and easy, noone knows-QOTSA, pretty much all recent rock music is fun and easy-Foo fighters, RHCP (warning, much of RHCP's bass is v. hard), Alkaline Trio, The hives:bassist: :ninja:

    Do a gangsta rap version of "Freebird", because you *will* get requests for that tune. :rolleyes:
