After a hard day of school then coming home and playing metal for 3 hours straight, sometimes I just need something to relax to. What are some good songs to learn for that?
The kind of stuff I'm thinking of that I can already play is Zephyr song (Still practicing it) and the intro of Soothsayer, and I'm looking intoi playing electric tears. Any other totally relaxing songs that arent to hard to play?

Blues. If I need to relax I stick a backing track on and play the blues (albeit badly) til I calm down

Lenny - SRV.


An amazing song.

This would have been my suggestion also
Nothing of me is original. I am the combined effort of everybody I've ever known.

Yeah, same (who'd have guessed from my avatar? :P ) Riviera Paradise is also really chilled also, quite jazzy.

Yellow Ledbetter by Pearl Jam as well.
