You know those times when you pick up your guitar and don't know what to play so you just start messing around? Well whats that song/scale/what ever, that you play every time?

For me, I always wind up playing Classico by Tenacious D, or I just start playing random chords that make no sense together. Or if I'm in a metal mode but just don't know what to learn, I'll usually play Colors by Iced Earth.
just random chords or scales (usually major )

Colors by Iced Earth.

Is that band fucking ICE!?!?!?!?

Seriously though, I usually jump into the middle of an Eruption or Freebird style solo.

I love a Dimebag tone just as much as anyone else. I'm Definitely considering a spider.
I normally fiddle around with something like D-Dsus4-D-Dsus2-Cadd9-G.

Or "Here She Comes Now" or "I'm Waiting For the Man" by The Velvet Underground.

Over The Hills And Far Away. Jeez I've played that song so many times it just rolls off the fingers nowadays.

My gut check riffs for any time I pick up a guitar are the chorus riff from The Philosopher (by Death) and the intro of Hyperdrive (Devin Townsend).

Well he's not a bad teacher, it just seems like he really doesn't know an awful lot about what he's teaching...
I mess around with E Phrygian, E Phrygian dominant, or E minor.
I like St. Anger. Ridicule me, daddy

Quote by ErikLensherr

I play a ska rhythm, usually something like Unity by Operation Ivy. Which makes my friend veryy mad since he hates ska. Or I play Hotel Yorba by the White stripes.
Generally some variation on a solo I keep end up inadvertently playing, involving a fairly generic ascending run from a low E up to an E minor chord on the 12th fret, then descending back down involving many arpeggios and slides.

Fucking sick of hearing it, to be honest.

I like doing things with chords over drones and pedal point. I've gotten to a point where I care about texture and harmony the most in music. I kinda wish I had the chops I used to have so I could get respect among my fellow guitar geeks, though. And a decent mic. Until then, I'm probably going to still mostly do electronic stuff. :/

That was really digressive.

Hello my name is guy i like my women naked and aroused lol
without fail, i will play the main riffs to 46 & 2 by Tool, Too Many Puppies by Primus and David Makalaster by the Frog Brigade within 2 minutes of putting on my bass. my band hates it.
It varies a lot, but whenever I play acoustic, I often end up with the intro for Tesla's Love Song or the first part of Zap by Eric Johnson. On an electric, I tend to play some funk rhythm, or some Tool riff, most likely Jambi or The Pot.
