To me, Jonas Brothers sound identical to Dragonforce. So I'm not sure what you've just proved.

can't stop by the chilis is a great tune to jam to if you can do the proper string muting. every string is muted but the one being played on the main riff but a lot of people don't do it(it sounds bad in my opinion if peoplle don't mute the other strings. the riff loses its attack).

p.s. look at the itunes original version of can't stop for ideas to make it a more jam based song if you want.

White Stripes is pretty good for being flexible and allowing you to go in a few different directions. Try Ball and a Biscuit or Fell In Love With A Girl.

And obviously they can easily be played by a drummer and a guitarist.

Anything really that has 3 chords and has a garage feel. Me and my drummer friend like to play REM songs alot. Begin the Begin is one of our faves

Me and my friends can honestly spend half an hour jamming on Voodoo Chile trading off solos, and a good time on Tombstone Blues by Bob Dylan

but honestly, voodoo chile is a great jamming song. or you could do it the more rocky way too and do voodoo child. either is really amazing.

Oh God, if you're into blues-rock and trading off while improvising, do La Grange by ZZ Top.


SOOO much fun.

You're stopping yourself playing alot of good songs without detuning. it does take time but its worth it in the end. but if you really want a song in standard id have to say

Cats In The Cradle - Ugly Kid Joe

Cowboys From Hell - Pantera

pantera songs are quite fun to play and are quite fun to learn as the riffs are pretty solid.
