I finally got a 6-string in standard (Fender Deluxe Playa's Strat). I have been living in the underworld as a prog metal bassist for the last ~15 years and am wanting to learn some sweet jams to play around with using clean/light OD tone. Basically I am looking for some chill stuff to play around with while figure out how to get some nice sounds out of the instrument. Doesnt have to be a full song... could just be one riff, etc.

What are your favorites? Like say you just pick up a guitar to play for some strangers or tone test an amp, what would you jam right away?

Sweet home Alabama.
Gear: Lindo victory flying V, Orange 30w practice amp, Jazz iii guitar picks, mobile phone apps for tuner and metronome.
There's really quite a lot of stuff in standard tuning out there.

Like, a lot.

But if you're into prog metal, learn some Opeth
