(I'm Not Your)Steppin' Stone
I don't know if it is the one I have done the longest, but I have sung The Fever (Bruce Springsteen) since 1975 and get requests for it all the time. It is one of my showcase type songs.
Louie Louie, Ya' Better Move On, Ghost Riders( written by Claire Litke, from my home
town- Torrington, Ct.), House of the Rising Sun
Walk Don't Run.
Been playing it for now over fifty years. (And still love doing so!)
Snoopy vs. the Red Baron, what's it to ya?
Julia Dream PF was the first song we figured out the chords for by listening to the LP...
one of my classmates in highschool had an acoustic guitar, I used to go to his place after school to play records and try and learn guitar playing ...
It was kind of amazing to play along to a PF song on the guitar and the chord changes matched up... and slow enough to play as a kid....
it was a "their guitars are the same as ours" moment... "it's ALL on here"....
yeh, Julia Dream is burnt into my music brain....
Friend of the Devil.
Good question... for me its ZZ Top's Jesus Just Left Chicago. I remember my first guitar teach some 30 years ago showing me that climbing down lick during the turnaround. I still enjoy playing it.
"Blue Sky" ABB.
Not any one that has been completely continuous, because of different band styles, but here's a few that come around frequently:
You Ain't Goin Nowhere - done in the Byrds' style
Will the Circle Be Unbroken
While My Guitar Gently Weeps
Probably the opening lick to Smoke on the Water. The first song I learned by ear was Gone Country, by Alan Jackson. The first song I learned the solo to was (I think) Take it Easy by the Eagles.
Gloria...first song I ever learned. Still play it.
Still play the first song I learned to play the chords from start to finish. But I've never played it with any band I've been in!
5 long years by Colin James
Paranoid by Black Sabbath. First song I learned a solo to. I never get sick of playing that tune.
Played and sung live Bad Moon Risin' by CCR in1971 (I was 15).
For Australians , and others in the know, Ëagle Rock by Daddy Cool, same year,
my 50 something next door neighbour still likes me to turn that one up for her-a
real piece of Australian heritage. "Check it out on youtube!!
Georgia Satellites - Hands to Yourself
Our first band played it (was a new release), and my current band was playing it when I joined as a staple. Strangely despite being overplayed and overdone for years, I never have gotten as sick of it as you might think. And crowds usually dig it, so who am I to argue.
One Way Out
"Emotion is much more important than making mistakes, so be prepared to look like a chump. If you become too guarded and too processed, the music loses its spontaneity and gut feeling” - Jeff Beck
