    I've Been Everywhere by Hank Snow. Not only long but a tongue-twister with tempo changes!

    One time we played "Louie Louie" for 45 minutes at a youth center dance....had a surf drum solo and a raga rock guitar solo similar to "The End".....

    Stairway to Heaven. Can sort of do both acoustic and electric with a T5z.

    "Starless And Bible Black" by King Crimson.....we did a jam session and out of a joke started playing it, as I really love the melody line at the intro.
    Well, we sort of tried our best, the I wasn't really able to do justice in mimicking the crazy saxofone solo. But the hardest part was the 13/8 counting - we really chewed on that one. Anyway it was fun - probably more for us than than audience, but it was late on a party and we did warn them that something strange would be coming (we also played PJ Harvey Down by the water and people were quite into it, so I guess the party was special anyway.....).

    When we get to jam with saxofone/trumpet/trombone players, "Papa Was A Rollin' Stone" in the extended version is always a must! We play it as long as I'm able to continue wiggling on the wah-pedal in time...

    A learned the entire outro solo of Blackfoots "Highway Song" as note for note as possible. Long forgotten by now.. and it was only a few months ago!
