Now that i think about it my first was smoke on the water too
It was actually my second, followed by plenty of Sabbath and early Metallica.
Malagueña. As a 7 year old I might imagine my interpretation was most likely unrecognizable.
Then CC&R Down Around the Corner, and later came Smoke On The Water. When I learned Smoke On The Water the song had just come out!
I guess the first riff would have to be Wipe Out. I could play both the drums and the guitar parts.
The first song I learned to play chords to is House of the Rising Sun. Walk, Don't Run followed soon after.
Learning those first chords opened the flood gates for me.
I remember the Ventures. As soon as a read Walk Don't Run, the song popped into my head. Thanks man, now I'm gonna have that song in my head for days.
Let me return the favor.
The Ventures - Walk Don't Run - YouTube
Pipeline was the first one I learned too, my dad showed it to me, because that was the only thing he could play.
The "Play guitar with the Ventures" series of albums were revolutionary at the time. And they taught me what it is all about. They taught the lead, rhythm, and bass parts and I learned them all. I still actually do some of that material.
I even still have one of the albums, but I lost the booklet that came with it. That's from roughly 1964 or 65.
Gloria for chords and Day Tripper for lead. Oh yeah...when you could play, Day Tripper, back in the day, you were one bad-ace guitar slinger! The memories are grand.
My first ever played on electric was "It's only love", Brian Adams with Tina Turner . Before that I always played acoustic, I could play some nice things on them.
At my friends house he teached me that riff on a really bad electric, with superskinny strings.
Aftet that I bought a washburn strat in white.
My first ever was the bassline to Ozzy's "No More Tears."
Wipe out..mid sixties
David Gilmour's rhythm bit from Another Brick in the Wall Pt 2. It is only 1 chord but v difficult for a beginner as the strumming is quite complicated! Then I learned Smells Like Teen Spirit by Nirvana.
Pretty sure it was Duane Eddy's Peter Gunn.
I love this version with Art Of Noise!
three blind mice on the E string Ha
LOL...yeah I'm pretty sure that was among the first if not the first for me too.
Hell Bent for Leather was up there as well. A friend showed me how to play bar chords and I must have played the intro to that song 1,000 times. My poor mother.
Found my grandpa's classical guitar in my parents' closet and picked out "Wish You Were Here." I still enjoy playing that solo on nylon strings. Funny thing about "Smoke on the Water"...my guitar teacher would not let me play it (not that I wanted to anyway)...he's still a hero of mine! Ha! Another early one was "Roundabout." Fun way to learn what natural harmonics are That one I distinctly remember playing in the music shop I was taking lessons from, getting the "Smoke on the Water being played in a music shop" look from one of the patrons, until I went past the intro...double-take!!
'Topsy/Swing To Bop'. Charlie Christian.
I think it may have been "Satisfaction".
