    I am just going to get straight to the point. I joined a band and right now we are all new together and are trying to just jam and get used to playing with each other. Right now we agreed on a popular sound and I need help with songs and bands that can help. We were talking about led zepplin, the who, the white stripes. Stuff like that. So can anyone please give me a list of songs I should learn to help me get started down that path. I am generally a funk player so this is unknown turf.

    Led Zeppelin:
    - Black Dog
    - Ramble On
    - Rock and Roll
    - Good Times Bad Times
    - Lemon Song

    The Who:
    - Pinball Wizard
    - I Can't Explain
    - Substitute
    - Won't Get Fooled Again
    - Summertime Blues
    - My Generation

    White Stripes:
    - I Just Don't Know What To Do With Myself
    - Hotel Yorba
    - Seven Nation Army
    - Death Letter


    This should help you get started.
    White Stripes don't have a proper bass, so should be fun to write your own basslines to those songs.

    You want classic rock? In no particular order

    April Wine
    Bad Company
    Boston
    Free
    Foghat
    Cream
    The Doors
    Blind Faith


    I can ramble on a pile more but I leave some left for the othrers to name.

    If you want to master the blues go get a couple Booker T and the MG records, once you get those down you can back a lot of R&B

    I already know how to play rush
     
  13. It seems the band isn't talking about doing metal...
    for a more modern perspective, check out Wolfmother.
