Default SOL Playlist #4: Torch Clutches at Straws

Okay, Sarahmoo nuked the original thread, so here it is again.

Choose three songs that you would like like to learn how to play/sing. No effort, boom, you know how to play it.

If you like, state if there is a particular instrument (or vocals) that you would like to learn for the piece. If so, please state in the PM so I know that you'd like people to guess that as well.

So yeah, Three pieces you'd like to instantly learn, maybe with a note of which specific part you'd like to learn.


Playlist is here! http://grooveshark.com/#!/playlist/S...ore+4/87346501

Contributers are as follows:
neoshadow, Nazja, Nozdormu, Rufin, Shroombie, Aneurysm, Anansi, Saranus, Magistrix Verdande, Ma Caque Attack, Malygos, Erthad, C9H20, Sarahmoo, Euphemialibritannia. Oh, and Me.

People who chose to suggest parts were Euphie, nonane, Macaque (two with two parts), Aneurysm (one "whole song"), Shroombie, and Bieber. Oh, and Me.

In addition, two people chose "Free Bird" (told you it was obvious, eh?), and there's a mystery "face punch" round, where somebody chose a piece where Torch's part particularly Sucks Ass. But which piece?

So in 3,2,1 Let the games begin!

Correct Guesses:

Sarahmoo

Free Bird- Lynyrd Skynyrd
Fortunate Son- Creedence Clearwater Revival
Wish You Were Here- Pink Floyd

Euphemialibritannia

Rabbit Fur Coat- Jenny Lewis (Part?)
Happy- Jenny Lewis (Vocals)
More Adventurous- Rilo Kiley (Part?)

Rufin

Chapter IV: Enter the Black Demon- The Fall of Troy (Lead guitar)
Uneasy Hearts Weigh the Most- Dance Gavin Dance (Vocals)

Torch

Counting Out Time- Genesis (Part?)
Vas Dis- Wishbone Ash (Part?)

Aneurysm

Dopesmoker- Sleep (Sludgy guitar bits*)
Free to Live- Winterhawk (Whole damn thing!)
Ain't Fit to Live Here- (Part?)

Erthad

Simple Man- Lynyrd Skynyrd
Spirit in the Sky- Norman Greenbaum

Malygos

Broken moon- Touhou?
Canon in D Major- Johann Pachelbel

Nozdormu

Halo Theme- Martin O'Donnel and Michael Salvatori

Anansi

Dunka Dunka- Johan Lindgren
Toccato and Fugue- JS Bach (Coward)
Hora Zero- Rodrigo y Gabriella (Smells of Elderberries)


Shroombie

Ticks and leeches- Tool (Drums*)
Radar Love- Golden Earring (Drums*)
Guerilla Laments- Diablo Swing Orchestra (Drums*)

Magistrix Verdande

Fairytale Gone Bad- Sunrise Avenue
Blow Me- Pink
Brokenhearted- Karmin

Saranus

Dearest Forsaken- Iron and Wine

Nazja

When Will My Life Begin- Mandy Moore
A Whole New world-?
Lion's Pride Inn- Arkenstone/Hayes

Ma Caque Attaque

Ace of Spades- Motorhead (Lead Guitar and Vocals)
Free Bird- Lynyrd Skynyrd (Lead Guitar)
Painkiller- Judas Priest (Part?)

Neoshadow

Song of Storms-?
Song of Time-?
Hedwig's Theme- John Williams

And Malygos was about to admit that Pachelbel's Canon in D Major was going to earn him a punch in the face, but he was too busy being punched in the face to answer.

That answer lacks the intrigues I was hoping for.

Hmm. Maybe I ought to check over to see if anyone needs to change a few songs...

Also, only 11 responses so far, half of the last one. Is it due to my lower forum presence, the theme (Come on Porim, you don't even want to know how to get the Gallileos correct in Bohemian Rhapsody?), or is it simply because everyone's a bit burned out with the playlists?

(Also, not many responses choosing individual parts)

Also, there's one individual I may need to punch in the face* over their choice of song. In that "fuck you, my part SUCKS ASS" kind of way

*may not involve actual face punching.

First of all, I think the gimmick should be optional. Like, when all the songs get revealed, we all say why we picked them - whichever instrument or part is most intriguing. It should be part of the discussion at the end. I think it was just a little too specific and there are too many people here who aren't musicians. The truth for my part is, of all the songs I really like, it's not because I wanted to learn the guitar riff or am jealous of the range it takes to hit the high C, I just like the song. Now, that said, I would really enjoy a "musical" discussion of the songs after they've been guessed. When I listen to a song, I'm not really focusing on one part or instrument. It's about how the parts work together.

Interesting. Could be that as somebody who's been learning a musical instrument since about 5 (a recorder back then, naturally), the idea of picking out specific lines and wanting to learn them has been somewhat natural, or at least, the overriding tune. Are there any more non-musical types who can perhaps weigh in on this?


Oh, and the playlist should be going up tomorrow. If it's not up by 6:55 GMT, then it's going to be up Monday afternoon.

Any last requests?

I don't have a tremendous interest in learning to play music.

Submitted mine there. They're pretty well-known rock bands so they shouldn't be too obscure for most people I think.

I wonder if there is any overlap so far.

One of the issues of theme playlists is that they narrow the playing field which can lead to the the above.

I think there is going to be one particular song that will show up in a few people's lists here, but lord knows I can't change now.

Oh yes, there is now a repeated song. A pretty obvious one too.

I don't know how much of a problem it really is, I mean, it's just a one song shorter playlist, and it's good to see decent minds thinking alike and what! Considering that it's a double out of popularity and not lack of choice, I think it's more cool than anything.

Stairway to Heaven? Smoke on the Water? Bohemian Rhapsody? All Along the Watchtower? Smells Like Teen Spirit?
