Teach Me To Play...
In issue 280, we asked you which Classic Track you most wanted to see transcribed in the mag. Hundreds of votes later, the top five proves that the heavy hitters of rock are still closest to your hearts… and rest assured that we’ve got the legal team working overtime to try to get permission for us to transcribe these for you in forthcoming Guitarist issues!
The Who – Won’t Get Fooled Again 23%
Led Zeppelin – Stairway To Heaven 19%
Guns N’ Roses – Paradise City 9%
Metallica – Nothing Else Matters 6%
Thin Lizzy – Emerald 5%
Others included far too many great songs to list here, but notable mentions go to Steve Vai’s Attitude Song, Epic by Faith No More and, erm, Winona’s Big Brown Beaver by Primus. Nice. The lucky winner drawn at random who wins a bundle of tuition DVDs and other goodies is Sean Thompson from Bracknell, who voted for Stairway.
This month, with our new Soundcheck section proving to be extremely popular, we’d like to know which artist you’d like to see featured in the songwriting section. Quite simply, who do you want to learn how to write songs like?
Simply text the keyword ‘SONGS’ followed by a space, followed by your choice to 87103. For example, if you want to write songs like Craig David, your text message would read ‘SONGS CRAIG DAVID’. Please DON’T include your name and address, just the keyword and artist name. Texts cost 25 pence, so please ask for the permission of the bill payer before you vote. The closing date is 31 October.
