Today, I purchased an Epiphone EJ-200 and I looooove it!! But the main point of this thread is to ask, what's your go to song to play when testing out a new guitar at your local/favorite guitar shop?

I'll start off with, Backslider by The Toadies or Stay Together for the Kids by Blink-182
All in all is all we are

Your arm on my shoulder, your cheek against mine.
Where can we go, when will we find that, we know.

Oh yes, Welcome Home by Coheed and Cambria is one of my fav's to play
All in all is all we are

Lenny by SRV, or Under The Bridge by RHCP usually, but I throw in some random improv to test out different things..

Usually some random noodling. I can't play in guitar shops for some reason. It pisses me off.

Hm... I just play random riffs of my favorite songs. And a few of my songs.

And whenever I'm trying out new distortion/overdrive, I always play Rock Show by Blink 182. I don't know why.

Megalodon by Mastodon.

particularly the bluesy riff and intro, but the whole song is ridiculously fun to play.

i then mess around with the pentatonic scale for a good five minutes, decide i hate the tone, and hang it up again.

I usually play something I made up so I can avoid some guy walking by trying to
tell me that my taste in music sucks.

My friend, however, goes into the acoustic rooms and starts playing Raining Blood on the most expensive acoustics.


I personally cant stand slayer but just that comment makes me smile and want to give that a shot.

My go to songs would be my own licks or improvising with steve vais-I know your here. sounds great for checking out clean and distorted channels.

But i usually see what the amp makes me want to do. I was trying out a a fender g dec on the funk channel or w/e it was called so i was playing reggae on a dave mustaine dean v

I had a spontaneous MoP duet thing with some random dude at a GC once.

It was awesome.

My go to "song" is usually just some bluesy improvising, though I will sometimes play something else.
#39
Mine's been said: Welcome Home by Coheed and Cambria. I also like to test out guitars at my local guitar shop with a few random Metallica riffs. Master of Puppets, Enter Sandman, etc.

six degrees of inner turbulence

not really
some random riffs of DT or some scales / chords

I need a backing track to play full songs or I will miss a lot of notes like some guys above me said
