Oh Ben, just read your post Smile

Couldn't agree more!

Lyrics have to be good.

I left out Abba as being one of the bands that i love.  Dancing Queen is enough to put me in a good mood and makes me sing along too. Smile even if I can't keep up with the lyrics. Ah, the Doors = you see that is another one. Just so many decent bands to mention that I would be all day otherwise (or all night).

I cant play a guitar for peanutsEmbarrassed.
 
Whilst I admire anyone that can "rip it up" on an axe, Im more of a drums man myself.
 
Since Im an old fart(born in 63) and spent my youth in Auss. Its gotta be any early AC/DC for me(Scott on vocals)Wink love all their songs...one stands out for a guitar solo though..."Let there be rock" Clap I defy anyone not to like that, and the live version/video rocks!

someone invited me to join a faceboook group where people posted their fav tracks. i enjoyed it to start with but it soon became too difficult to keep up with new posts and there was a lot of stuff that wasn't my thing. 

may i propose we use this thread or start a new one where people are encouraged to post a maximum of one each per day, a track that for whatever reason they want to share with everyone?

as there have been a few mentions for them already, here's a start

Great idea Tim!

I'll post one on Friday to get us all in that Friday mood. Smile

You do realise now Tim and Gemma that I am probably going to spend more time on here listening to other people's tracks every day, than actually doing any work. But I will have it running in the background as i'm working and I would say that inspiration should be flowing faster than i can typeSmile

Enjoyed the Stranglers Tim, about 7th down on the right hand side is a live version of hanging around from '78 that comes up, I've watched that about a billion times, really worth a listen.

How about a bit of FotN?

Massively underated in my humble opinion, Ennio Morricone meets dry ice, bags of flour and distortion guitar, been to many of their gigs, never fail to please Wink



PS it starts quietly and the intro lasts over 4 minutes so you have to bear with it Big smile

Here's my Friday choice to get the blood pumping, try any track from Mountain"s live album. If you've not heard of them they were around for about three years in the very early seventies and the guitarist, Leslie West is absolutely awsome.

Fantastic Liam and there was me thinking I was being extravagant wanting a new electric guitar to compliment my now aging and well worn Jackson PS-2! Is that an original National Duolian in the front row?

Yes, from 1932. I have also acquired a Style-0 since that picture was taken, but sold a couple in the picture to pay for it (not the Duolian, that's a keeper). The Gibson top left is for sale now if anyone is interestedWink

Gemma, I think one guitar is too few and you should certainly get another. Electric guitars are thin anyway so you can stack them two deep under the bed...

LOL Liam, I do also have an acoustic which is good for the old finger tips! Things kind of hit a wall for me though when I bought a Line 6 Spider Jam amp. Ideal for someone like me who just likes to play along with my favourite songs at home, though the problem is because of the way it processes the signal, it really doesn't matter what is plugged into it, it will still sound exactly the same on any given pre-set or custom sound. So bang goes an excuse to start collecting guitars. I have a few on my hit list though, top of the bill of my wants list  must be a Gretsch Tennessean, (as used at times by Robert Smith of the Cure and also Paul Wright of FotN)
