Some Trower maybe? Day of the Eagle, Caledonia, Daydream
Dicky Betts is a legend...
"Hits" from 1920-1940. That's where they hide all the great chord progressions.
Of course, I have to say it......Grateful Dead Songs
I always liked "Would I Lie To You" by The Eurythmics as a guitar heavy rock and roll song.
First thing this morning, I put together a little medley of "Can't Help Falling in Love" and "Over the Rainbow." It was hopelessly schmaltzy, but I enjoyed playing it.
How about a Monkish version of 'Lulu's Back in Town"? I play that all the time. You can chop up a great song any way you like, and it'll work. (A ways in you get the underappreciated Charlie Rouse on saxophone.)
Or "Out of Nowhere" Listen to Charlie Parker's version first.
Seriously, listen to this:
Cutting edge stuff, eh?
I second (third?) "Ramblin' Man" and "Jessica", two of my all-time favorite songs, by the Allman Brothers.
"Smoke From A Distant Fire" - Sanford/Townsend Band
"Runaway" - Starship
"Two Tickets To Paradise" - Eddie Money
"Imaginary Lover" - Atlanta Rhythm Section
"25 or 6 to 4" - Chicago
"Too Rolling Stoned" - Robin Trower
"Sultans of Swing" - Dire Straits
Lots of others, but those are some of my favorites.
Elliott Smith songs. Son of Sam (acoustic and album versions), Condor Ave, Memory Lane, Happiness, Everything Reminds Me of Her, etc.
The guy was a master of interesting chord shapes and progressions.
And I like Frusciante a lot, too. Started working on Soul to Squeeze a couple weeks ago, cool jam. Maybe go through the Blood Sugar Sex Magik album and pick out some riffs or tunes to work on? Under the Bridge intro? Could Have Lied solo?
The Bo Diddly song.
Put on an album you like, start playing along. Don't stop. Make note of some of the songs/passages that go by that either grab your attention or you are clueless how to do. Learn that.
If you play LW and need some songs to get some licks if not whole songs aside from excellent suggestion already (you really can’t go wrong with RHCP, Purple, Floyd..) posted by others here my two cents. I take the parts/techniques I like and add them to my playing. Honest theft.
Good grove and plenty of different licks to look into.
Or Steffen Shackinger, killer player. Love the sound of Strat too.
There are some jaw-dropping solos in there.
