Playlist in development

Jack Black @ Blizzcon 2010

I’ve retained some of my inspiration from watching the Warm Leads play a couple of weeks ago and started working on a playlist. Here are the tracks so far:

  • Killers – Mr Brightside
  • Mumford & Sons – Little Lion Man
  • Barenaked Ladies – if I had a million dollars
  • RHCP – Californication
  • Beatles – Norwegian Wood
  • Eagles – Hotel California
  • The Fray – How to save a life
  • Gary Jules – Mad World
  • Kings of Leon – Sex on Fire (terrible)

I think Kings of Leon is going to drop off – it doesn’t work, as Patrick warned me, on a single guitar arrangement. At least, not if you’re me. But the others are working out OK at the moment, if I haven’t made any progress memorizing them yet.

I do have better tools available to me today than the last time I took guitar seriously. There are a plethora of useful (if slightly agonizing) Youtube tutorials ( keeps coming up) in addition to lots of freely available chord and tab arrangements out there.

I just need to make the time to memorize some chord sequences and lyrics.

Any other suggestions for songs I should work out, folks? I have a separate list for Emily which includes Old Macdonald, Twinkle Twinkle Little Star and Dingle Dangle Scarecrow.
