    I was gonna mention Thunder Struck by ACDC since this is about rock but Angus dosn't include sweep picking/palm mutes/hammerons/hammeroffs/slides/pinch harmonics/artificial harmonics/tremelo picking/dives on the whammy bar/economy picking and he uses standard tuning so nevermind maca.

    Definitely incorrect. :tongue:

    and you know I'm just kidding around in the other threads, right? You always seem to be wanting to argue with someone on here, so I hooked you up. All that aside, I love some of the same virtuosos that you do and I wouldn't mind hearing you play sometime if you ever put something up.

    I can't remember anything I've posted, but Steve Vai's Bad Horsie is badass.

    It would probably the greatest live performance ever had Bowie been there.

    Wow @ no one mentioning The Rolling Stones - Satisfaction

    Another quirky cliched phrase, but it's still [​IMG] [​IMG]

    Jimi Hendrix - 1983 (A Merman I Should Turn to Be)

    A song that doesn't get enough mention, IMO.

    I can only tolerate the Stones in small doses. Wild Horses, Paint it Black, 19th Nervous Breakdown, mother's little helper, ruby tuesday, and love is strong being my favs.

    a couple more:

    aerosmith - sweet emotion
    electric wizard - dopethrone
    melvins - zodiac (they go out strong like always.)
    screaming trees - clairvoyance, orange airplane, dying days

    Appalling how absent it is from Greatest Hits compilations.

    I guess the song length has something to do with that, but I love the vocals and lyrics.



    What do you think of 'Under my Thumb'? One of my personal faves of theirs.



    I heard 'When the Levee Breaks' by Led Zeppelin for the first time the other day. (I know, I know... where have I been?)

    Simple yet very catch riff... I could listen to it all day.

    Ya know, I was listening to Soundgarden just last night, and now I like 4th of July a lot better than I once did. Weird how suddenly you can start liking something.

    Posted this in another thread, but I suppose it's more relevant here:

    My favorite Metallica riff. A gem on a shitty album.

    I miss that good old Seattle early 90s riff-rock.
