It's funny man I was thinking of making  a similar thread just recently! I usually play a csus4 to see if the guitar is in tune.Then I try and play something I've never played before to get out of bad habits and over-played routines.

I usually just play the latest thing I've been working on, unless I know they won't really like it.

Like if it's a friend who listens to Country, I'm not going to go Acid on them. Unless it's going to be a joke!!

I have it set up so I can turn the volume down on one pickup and it's mainly acoustic, crank it up and it overdrives. That drives some people nuts.

E7(#9). I met a deadhead named Adam Kamil a long time ago. He died! But way before that happened he taught me that chord. This was around the time I was learning to play guitar and the chord sort of stuck as a deadhead staple. Now I know that chord isn't really used by the dead, virtually at all (at least I haven't noticed it, but I'm not familiar with their entire catalog of songs), but it is well known for being a chord used by Jimi Hendrix. It's in "Purple Haze". :)

Purple Haze was the first song my daughter danced to, she was up on my computer desk showing off. She was maybe 1 1/2 to 2 years old. It was hilarious!

Started learning to play guitar when I was about 13. I have uploaded a bunch of songs I play guitar, sometimes midi, to

I call myself Knarf there. It is best to listen to the songs by using the playlists on the right. Enjoy! bigear.gif
