I rarely go more than a week without playing along to 'Heard It on the X' by ZZ Top. There's just something about the way that song flows with all the chord pull offs that's fun as hell for me to play. Sure, it's not a hard song, but it sure is a fun one.

What's your guilty pleasure? What's your fairly easy song that you've played over and over and over thru the years? :)

If i'm not mistaken isn't your "guilty pleasure" something your ashamed of doing/listening/liking yet really like it? lol

I'm not proud of being able to play AC/DC -- it's that goddamned simple, I'm not gonna impress anyone -- but god-damn ain't it fun?

It's like a peppermint full of empty sugar. :)

Sorry for digging up such an old thread, but I didn't want to start anew when one already exists. Here's a couple from my youth that I still enjoy...

I watched Lou Pallo introduce his signature model guitar by playing this song . . .


. . . and hearing Pallo's version I worked up my own version of the song (well before I happened to acquire a Pallo sig model myself) in such a way that I like to play it as a warm-up when I feel like practising---it's good finger exercise for me!
