  1. Sometimes to get energy going on we go with the fun little ditty "Bulls on Parade" or "Renegades of Funk" by Rage Against the Machine.

    Ok guys...me and the new band have been busy learning new songs. We are still searching for a second guitar player, but things are looking really positive and we plan to gig in the next month or so.

    I thought you might like to see what our song list has turn out to be. I took many of your suggestion, some got thrown out, others got added. We are doing way more pop stuff than I wanted originally, but I had to make compromises since there are 3 other people in the band too!! The radio/pop stuff will at least help us with audiences anyway, even though I hate most of it. Here it is so far. The first 26 songs are ones we've already learned-believe it or not!

    My band is basically refusing to do Iron Maiden, AC/DC, or more Led Zeppelin (we're doing communication breakdown) because they're too hard for our singer. :bawl:

    I play sober finger style. I play a 5 string and what I do is with my right hand I tap between the neck pup and the neck a fretted D and the open D at the same time. With new strings I can get plenty of "zing" and the low end power at the same time. Never had a complaint and so far no one has noticed that Im "fakeing" it. Watch your clip light on your amp. You might have to back off on the attack some. Also, the action on my bass is not realy low, but its low. Hope this helps. Btw, Im not very good useing a pick and I use no effects.

    Ace of Spades - Motorhead :D
    mean machine by sugar ray seems to be a popular one too, and its pretty cool
