What part do you like better - the slower first part or when they jam out near the end?

The barrel of my Glock would taste really good if I ever heard that song again.

For years growing up, I never could understand why my parents couldn't bear to listen to some of those old songs that sounded awesome to a 15 year old. Now, I get it.

The part where I never have to hear that song again as long as I live.

I'm curious - why?

Airplay royalties from that song alone will ensure that any Alabamian named "Van Zandt" won't ever have to work for at least 4 generations. It's been completely overplayed, then played some more, and if you haven't heard it enough, hang tight...there's a prom, a wedding, or a high-school field party that will be blaring it extremely soon.

DOn't forget any swinging pecker that can strum a C-D-G on a guitar. It's the "entry level" song before the intro to "Stairway to Heaven" is taught.

I thought "Iron Man" was the first song every aspiring rock guitarist learned first?

I guess it's all dependent on your exposure. Mine was a little skewed. I think "Smoke on the Water" was my first introduction to power chords. Then, "S.T.H." taught a bit about finger picking (and my inability to master it).....after that, it was a mish-mash of Metallica riffs, some Skynyrd, feeble dabblings at some James Taylor witchcraft chords, and Van Halen. I'm no good at any of the above, so I blame "Deep Purple."

TAKFAP - when is the last time you attended a prom or a high school corn field party? Please forward me the next invite. I want to go and hear Freebird! Lol! :D
