Lynard Skynard: Freebird; Dont know the slide bit yet or what tuning its in but the backing is quite good and at 9 mins its a rocking track!

Personally i play the slide part in normal tuning, although I'm pretty sure the original was in Open G! biggrin.gif

PS. If you need any B/Tracks let me know which ones and I'll see if I have them!!

The more repertoire you have the better!

Hotel California is always a crowd pleaser smile.gif I double time the arpeggio solo second time round at the end of the song. It always adds a bit of tempo, excitement and speed to the song. From my experience works anywhere through the night.

Besides for great suggestions already mentioned here's some more that work well:

GNR - Sweet child o mine
Bon Jovi - It's my life, Living on a Payer
ACDC - Highway to hell, thunderstruck
Incubus - Drive
Def Leppard - Pour some sugar on me
Van Halen - You really got me
Reef - Place your hands
Michael Jackson - Beat it

That's all i can think of off the top of my head right now tongue.gif

Hope it helps!


thanks Ian, all suggestions are welcome!!

Some other suggestions:-
Cream ~ Sunshine of your Love, White Room and Crossroads,
Prince ~ Purple Rain (Check out Aynsley Listers version on Youtube!!)
Bob Marley ~ I shot the Sheriff (always goes down well!)
Perhaps some Bruce Springsteen?

Led Zep - Whole Lotta Love

A personal fave id love to play out one day:


or also from Beano:


PS i think both of the bluesbreakers tunes are quite doable solo, providing you have a decent backing track - i have one for Little Girl if you want it - both tunes have crushing Clapton solos which are not too complex

In addition, John Mayall is hardly renowned for his singing so it may prove quite an easy tune to cover smile.gif

Purple rain would be good, crossroads would take a long time to learn and as for Springsteen, I cant see Born In
The USA going down well in Liverpool!!

Two amazing tunes there mate, if you could pm me the backing for little girl would be most grateful! It sounds very doable for a solo gig, thanks for the input!!
