Re: Suggestions: JULY 2016 Song of the Month

I have an idea for this  so don't discount it  by who it is.  It may not be as deep as Neil young or retro classic as Ode to Billy Joe,  but its a great song.

I think a lot of you all would  be able to really play with this, its called Rip it out by Ace Frehley.  many ways it can go.  so since many may not know the song its here.  Original https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=d2sMi8mtE_s  Live  this year https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Lzx3rrznvi4  one way to play it, https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zYyl8zyRWsc  however if you watch the live vid, he plays a A and the B on the 3rd.

however,  this song has huge versitality depening on mood. heck change up the chords even   lyrics can be found here. https://play.google.com/music/preview/T … s&u=0#

“It’s like a Jab, you got the squeeze and you got the attack, you got the guitar and the emotion behind the song. 
You can plug into a Marshall, but if you are not attacking it,  it's just going to sound so-so.  If the song doesn't grove, you are just bashing through chords” .
-- Mike Ness,  Social Distortion

Love that song.

Re: Suggestions: JULY 2016 Song of the Month

smile  Good suggestions in here!  I think July's song should be a good ole sing along song!  Something everyone knows, is easy to play, and fun to sing!  After all, summer's on the way (in most areas), and it's the season for campfires and sing along songs.  Well, that's just my 2 cents of course.  wink

Like "Knocking on Heaven's Door"? or
        "Blowing in the Wind"?               or maybe
        "Country Roads"?

Edit to add: After writing this I really fancy doing "Knocking on Heaven's Door"

Re: Suggestions: JULY 2016 Song of the Month

Knocking On Heavens Door. Sounds like a good song to tackle not too many lyrics great chorus and one many Chordians could do. Great sugestion Roger.

Re: Suggestions: JULY 2016 Song of the Month

What about selecting an artist and letting people choose a song. Bob Dylan, Woody Guthrie ect.
Or songs that begin with the letter C..for example.
Either way it's fun.

Thanks Chordie for the years of music and advise.
