    Extreme  - Hip Today

    All of these currently have me - guitar, @octatonic - drums, @Legionreturns ;;; - vocals (at least on Cupid's Dead), may need bass if @fretmeister can't make it. Could do with another guitar on Cupid's Dead.

    Extreme - Cupid's Dead

    Extreme  - Cynical

    Extreme  - Hip Today

    All of these currently have me + @octatonic - guitar, @Legionreturns ;; - vocals (at least on Cupid's Dead), may need bass if @fretmeister can't make it, definitely need drums
    I was suggesting I'd play drums for these tunes.
    I'm playing drums the rest of the day anyway.
    If we have another drummer on the day who can play to this level then I am happy to play guitar or bass- whatever is needed.

    I suggested Midnight Hour, Call me The Breeze, Shake a Tail Feather, Let's Stick Together in the first thread.

    Testify by RATM is a great one and I already know it on drums.

    Can I suggest

    Cigarettes and Alcohol - Oasis
    Don't Look Back In Anger - Oasis

    a chance for a bit of lead for us lousy players in those...?

    Beat It - Michael Jackson (give someone a chance to be EVH if they want to)
    Plug In Baby - Muse (so I can show you how I learnt it years ago and so play it with two fingers like a plum)

    Just thoughts, all pretty straightforward tunes.

    Edit: seeing there is a bit of a punk theme developing in the middle

    Anarchy In The UK - Sex Pistols.

    I've made a playlist of the song list above (cheekily adding my own suggestions) I will add to it as songs get added in the thread, might be nice to have a listen.

    Need to learn a few of these as well!

    I'll add these songs later, I have to step out for a while now.
    By all means go practice whatever you guys want to but please bear in mind that these are all just suggestions for now and as has been pointed out in the other thread more than once, the day is for everyone including the beginners so a lot of these are going to need looking at carefully to make sure we pick a list that works for everyone.
    Also not every part of the day will be about trying to perform songs as covers when we're having the less experienced playing, there's going to be need to be room for simple 'Jamming' as it were.

    We'll keep the suggestions open for another few days to get a good varied mix together and THEN we'll close it and start picking through what's best.

    Ok?

    Some of my favourite Clapton songs (from a playing point of view):
    Electric:
    Sunshine of your Love (can't manage the solo but will get it down one day)
    I'm Tore Down

    Acoustic (my preference, YMMV):
    Before You Accuse Me
    San Francisco Bay Blues

    A generic "Blues in E" jam could work for many songs too.

    There are plenty more that I couldn't cope with, although it's quite nice to stick on "From the Cradle" and attempt to jam along to each track.

    Yes...apologies Col.

    I'm out for a few hours so I'll amend the list when I get home later.
    I forgot to add that one but i will do.

    Sunshine of your love is an excellent suggestion. I would personally love to play that one with you and I can sing it for you too.

    If you want I can show you (Somehow.....maybe skype) how to play the solo?
    Not that you're expected to on the day, I don't mean that, I mean if you're interested in don't mind helping you to know how to play it?
    The same goes for anyone else really.
    I'm not a guitar teacher by any stretch but I'm happy to show people how to play something I can play.
    As it goes Sunshine of your love isn't such a difficult solo to learn reply so I reckon I could help you play that with relative ease.

    Just a friendly offer, you don't have to if you don't want to.

    I'll say it as often as I need to, we're here to help people learn, progress and feel confident. 
    If I see just one person crack that smile you can't stop from the buzz of enjoying playing live then the whole day will have been worth it.
    If I see lots of people do that then I'll be more satisfied than I can describe. 
    The day is as much for that as it is for people who I too am in awe of to inspire us all and for us ALL to enjoy their performances.
    We will actively stay away from feelings of intimidation and openly look for inspiration, confidence and encouragement.

    That's a very kind offer, thanks.  I used to be able to play it somewhat but I've got rusty.  I might take you up on that if we can sort out logistics and technology!

    @aord43 ....no problem at all.
    Let's get this week out of the way and we can see what we can put together.
    I've never used Skype but it can't be that difficult. 
    I'll ask my Son (The I.T. Dept).

    Willing to play basic root note style bass on any song where I'm given the chord chart, or willing to learn a bass part if specifically asked to, eg I'll have a go at one of those Extreme songs if you like.

    (I know this is the song list, but if we're adding lists of contributors/line-ups as well, I thought I might as well pop my name forward.)

    Red House - Hendrix

    Foxy lady - Hendrix


    plus my favourite song-

    Hard to handle - Black Crowes

    Some that I could probably batter through without too much additional "homework"

    Gary Moore - Walking by myself

    Led Zep - The Ocean

    Peter Green - Man Of The World (a bit sombre maybe?)

    This is always fun: Joan Jett - I Love Rock n Roll........... In fact I reckon I'll claim that one!

    Midnight Hour- Wilson Pickett
    Shake a Tailfeather - the version to do is the Blues Brothers but the original is by the Five Du-Tones

    Can I please throw "Only In Dreams" By Weezer onto the list (runs for cover)

    Edit: also "Champagne Supernova" by Oasis, its got about a dozen guitar tracks on it so you could have three guitarists in there if you like, its very easy to play, good for a jam from some of us mediocre guitarists.

    Can I also add:

    Polly by Nirvana
    Nemo by Nightwish

    Nemo might be hard to get a singer for as the lady who sings the original is very operatic!

    Not saying that I can play these at all, just been listening to them a lot lately and would love to be able to play even a bit if them.

    Cheers

    Ok done.

    On a slightly more boring, practical level.......

    We're approaching 50 songs now.

    We won't be picking 50 songs and we won't be learning anywhere near that many so, by all means keep the suggestions coming everyone but PLEASE do remember that this weekend we have to pick realistic songs that are easy enough for people to actually pull off in a band context having never rehearsed together and had only had around 6 weeks to practice them. Now I'm thinking of the beginners but I include myself in that category (Humbly) due to my severe lack of practice over the last 12 months so by all means we can try some of these songs but it's already been mentioned that the few songs by 'Extreme' might be asking a bit much of us, no matter how good we are as individuals and there are a few others on that list which sound "Not that difficult" when you listen to them on a Hi-Fi stereo from a full, magic powered studio recording all compressed and tailored to sound amazing etc.................You try playing that with a bunch of people you've never played with before and minimal practice.
    All I'm saying is that from this list there'll be some that are useable and do-able and as the numbers keep increasing, so will the amount of songs we DON'T use. Please don't feel bad towards us if we don't pick your song choice ok?
    We'll discuss it among ourselves this weekend and probably discuss the final list once we think we've got it sussed so it's not 100% down to us three but we're going to form what is essentially the 'House Band', especially for a lot of the beginners (Thinking of you guys again!) so us three need time to learn these songs properly so we don't let YOU down.

    There's a lot to do and a lot to sort out so let's keep going and we'll call it a day on the list by the end of the week.
    It doesn't matter if the list hits 100 songs, we will still only pick the number that we feel is appropriate and then look for the songs that will work so keep the suggestions flowing.

    Outside of the purpose of this, that song list is a great resource for people to look back to, maybe in months to come for ideas for other Jam Sessions we organise, or that individuals go to themselves so keep 'em coming and I'll keep updating it.
    Well done so far everyone.

    If anyone suggests 'Coldplay' in any way, shape or form I WILL shoot them.
