Well, if you are going to be a little more fun you could always play Bachs Bouree. Or you could play Backmores Night Memmingen. it sounds just great. And it actually wont be boring to listen to. Which is the case of you playing ac/dc whiteout being an original member. But maybe you are?
#10
I just play my original **** cause when they ask what it is and I say I made it they seem pretty impressed.

That depends, when you look at a map is west left or right?


If you think I care about what you say to me you are sadly mistaken.
#11
It depends. For a girl it'll be Wonderwall, Like a Stone or one of my softer songs, for the boys it'll be one of my heavier songs or Serve The Servants.

I just play the chord of D over and over again at increasing and decreasing tempos. Then I slide up the fret board slowly and tremelo pick the highest note on the guitar and then smash the guitar off of the nearest table.
#13

or a 5 minute metal symphony using the G major scale (haha its not impossible, and it bores people to death)

Awesome.



Oh on topic (not that anyone in the Pit cares): Blackbird by the Beatles, maybe a Metallica tune, Christmas Eve/Sarajevo 12/24, Carry on Wayward Son.
GO YANKEES!
#15
If I'm handed an acoustic, I'll probably play Drifting by Andy Mckee. If I get handed an electric then most likely a bit of Sylosis or whatever sounds good in whatever tuning the guitar is in
ohai little sig.
#17
Blackbird, Here Comes the Sun, or Happiness/Waltz #2 by Elliott.

I've done blackbird numerous times though when have ppl asked me that

I love you =] I can't say I was very fond of you when we first started talking because you trolled the hell out of my threads, but after talking to you here I've grown very attached to you.

Yeah, write to my fanclub about it, honey.
#20
I usually play Little Wing - Jimi Hendrix.. And then the noob that asked me to play has a "que?" look on his face and has no idea what I just played. -_- Yes all my friends are noobs.

Maybe you're playing it wrong.

I was asked to play guitar for my family last night.

I just played random riffs and improvised some stuff. I played one 5 second riff from that Santana song "Maria Maria", and everyone was amazed.

Usually it's either Cherub Rock or Jellybelly by the Pumpkins.

It depends on the guitar, tuning, who asks, etc.

Hypothetically, if someone have my an acoustic guitar in standard I'd play Drive - Incubus. If I got an Electric Guitar in standard, I'd play Push Push (Lady Lightning)
#31
If someone asks me to play the guitar at a party or something I usually reply "Fuck off, I play the piano".

Yeah, I hear you're huge at Ultimate-Organ.com.

Oh... Wait...
#36
improv some solo, with some fast legato runs and maybe a sweep or two, just too impress them.
#37
Crazy Train seems to work pretty good all around. Guys, girls, metal heads - everyone likes Crazy Train.

EVERYONE!
OR ELSE!

...or else I'll play whatever I feel like. Sometimes Battery isn't bad. Or if its a girl who really likes pussy ass music... More Than Words by Extreme. Meh.
..saying I loooooove you, is not the words I want to hear from yoooou...
...
This is a clever, witty signature. Rofl at my glory.
#38
Meh, mine always seems to be Little Wing / Classical Gas / Always with me, always with you...
Unless your faced by a totally noob, they'll probably just be like 'wat' if you play some runs / sweeps (plus, you'll look a ****).
#39
I improvise some jazz **** on my bass if anyone asks.

Then my dad tries to be cool and do the same thing, and fails, so I look even better.

P.S. I'm a womanfolk! : )
