Great Guitar Songs

Hey, all. I tend to shy away from theme shows on the DRH; they're usually way more trouble than they're worth. However, if the theme is loose enough, it could be fun.

I want to do a series of shows on great non-prog guitar songs, keyboard songs, etc. So, if you have a few or so songs that you think are GREAT guitar songs, let's get them in so I can build some guitar-centric shows.

Same guidelines as before: Can't be on AM, has to be good.

Now, great guitar song is not necessarily synonymous to "watch me play a lot of notes!" They can be, but don't have to be.

Already played Stairway. I have Hotel already. However, for my money, the best guitar song by Eagles is this.

Re: Great Guitar Songs

IMO, any non-prog guitar show should have a song from one of the greatest guitar albums of all time (UFO-Strangers in the Night) featuring guitarist Michael Schenker. You also should include the great Frank Marino. His "Real Live" album will melt your face . Also there are so many great blues guitarists that are so much better than Eric Clapton (And I am a fan of Clapton). How do you chose for a 1-hour show?

Re: Great Guitar Songs

No, not Freebird. I can't go to a single show without someone shouting "Free Bird." Ugghh. I really think places should start to throw out people who yell "free bird." I"m serious. It was fun for a while but it's not funny anymore and it's just annoying as hell.

Re: Great Guitar Songs

Chicago - 25 or 6 to 4 - one of the best guitar leads ever.

(as tired as I am of Hotel California, the outro also a top something guitar lead ever)

(Clapton - years ago, a guitarist friend of mine and I started working on a list of guitarists that were better than Clapton - we gave it up, as the list got so long. I think we quit at about 75.)

I have them. The ones on AM are out. As for the others, I really, really, really want to stay away from the "Radio Classics" as much as possible. Curiously enough, I consider "Light My Fire" more of a keyboard song.
