Second “House of the Rising Sun” for me. Surprised not more guys for that one.
Over The Hills And Far Away, the acoustic intro.
Still play that every time I pick up a guitar too.
I recall the first thing I learned to play was Yesterday by the Beatles
The first riff I learned was "Young Love" by Sonny James. That turned out to be very useful for a lot of songs, but the most useful thing I learned was when I was in a hospital at R.A.F. Burderop and a medical tech showed me a 12 bar blues with inside 7th, 9th and 13th chords that I use to this day. I play "young Love" sometimes too. God, I love being old.
The first one I vividly remember was Sweet Child O Mine.
Wipe Out, Surfaris version
Just riffs and no rest of the song before I learned anything about the guitar?
Smoke on the Water (Deep Purple)
Peter Gunn (...sort of)
The first songs I actually learned were (I think in this order):
Norwegian Wood (Beatles)
And I love Her (Beatles)
49th Street Bridge Song (Simon/Garfunkel)
Show Me The Way (Peter Frampton)
Rocky Mountain Way (Joe Walsh)
Get Back (Beatles)
I bought lots of books on how to play xxx hit songs or platinum songs, or Beatles songs, YES songs, etc... which did not help.
First Song I jammed in a basement band
Taking Care Of Business (BTO)
First couple of days I tried to record myself playing Venom - Manitou using a pair of headphones as mics, one side for «singing» and one side in front of the amp. Hadn’t figured out power chords yet, so I just used one finger like a capo.
This is 88/89...
Submission - Sex Pistols.
Probably Shakin' All Over, or Rebel Rouser.
At least, that was the first one I played right!!!!
Oh my, I thought I was the only one.
I was absolutely mesmerised by the squeals and screams Paul Kossoff got from his guitar! I still am and I still can't replicate them!
Class A Drugs???...... naahhhh must be something else
I think it was the synth riff from The Final Countdown, closely followed by Smoke On The Water and Iron Man.
Hair of the Dog by Nazareth.
Remarkably similar to Day tripper,
' now you're messing with a SoB! '
The bass riff from ‘Fire’ by the Pointer Sisters…
My first song was La Grange, ZZ Top. I was about 11 and it sounded like nothing I'd heard before.
I started on a acoustic with nothing but YouTube.
So I learned chords &songs, not riffs
Marshall Tucker ..Can't you see
Getting my granddaughter started I went with
For what it's worth by CSN
Then got her into lessons.
Unfortunately her Squier mini gets played more by me right now....
Give it time... we'll see
