    Of course I've got duty today. I'll have something up tomorrow, however.

    Damn you, Jolly. The Cult was the first band that popped into my head, though the song was Li'l Devil.

    And this here is the very reason I wanted to do this game. I just met this song, but I love it.

    Oh I get it... all seven guys can play but just choose to treat this game like it is a joke.

    As a spectator, I'd like you guys to take it more serious and learn something that challenges you.

    Drop my jaw fells... it doesn't take that much, just an honest effort to play something that isn't beneath your abilities.

    The Living Dead can shred all over the place like it's nothing... can we see some of that?

    We're not supposed to be wowing each other; we're supposed to be expanding our musical horizons. I'm already back into Crowbar. I didn't like them back in the early 90s on HHB but I dig that newer stuff.

    Dude, you apparently could have played that riff while simultaneously eating a sandwich and driving a car.

    Speaking of sandwiches (it's dinner time) that was a very meaty and percussive right hand technique you displayed... very manly and strong.

    I likey.

    Yeah, I mean I get tired of playing the same ol' crap. I wanna use this opportunity to get outside my comfort zone and learn some off-the-wall stuff. I can tell it's working because I'm sounding like crap! lol very humbling some of these styles.

    I'm learning an extra hard piece right now. It's something I had put on the sidelines because I've been consumed by work and real life. Should be up by Friday.

    This game brings me back to the days when I was starting out and practicing 8 hours a day in my dorm room. I missed the feeling that I was improving. So for me, more than anything, it's brought me back into the zone. I'm also hearing a few bands that I never would have known about so I have to thank everyone here.

    Well ****...I'll push harder. Thanks for the compliment on my right hand. I don't think these paws are really capable of any kind of finesse.

    I'm not treating this thread as a joke. I'm just having fun with it. That's what music is supposed to be about, at least for me it is. That's one of the reasons I started playing. I don't play the guitar to try and drop people's jaws. I never have and I never will.

    You want us to make an honest effort to play something that isn't beneath our abilities. Well, I've got news for you, I'm making an honest effort just trying to figure out a band/artist and song by whatever letter is told to us....lol

    Another thing you've got to realize is that I don't know that many songs by other people. I played bass in band until I was 29. We played our own music. I never even owned an electric guitar or electric guitar amp up until I was 31. When I got that guitar and amp I went straight into recording my own music.

    I've never really sat and tried to learn that many cover tunes. Sure, I can play quite a few, but they're probably all wrong because I've learned them all from playing what I hear in my head, or I've heard them on a commercial or whatever. I did however play a couple of gigs with some friends about 11 years ago and I sat down and actually learned about 30 songs or so.

    Good points. I can help you on the bands of a certain letter... go here and pick up backing tracks and peruse through the letter choices. It will give you more than a start.

    That is a very unique situation... and I don't mean to speak for 9unslinger or anybody else, but I'm sure if you wanna play some bass riffs, we'd all be looking forward to it.

    You also have a family, career, life, etc... so whatever you can pull off is all good.

    30 songs? That is a LOT!

    Nah, I don't really have any of that stuff.....lol. I have no problem learning a song for the game, but don't expect me to be trying to pull any songs that are to tough out of my ass, because I sure as hell can't do that. My forte' and comfort zone is in my original music.
