Chuck Berry - Johnny B Goode (Chuck Berry)
|Chuck Berry- through the years!|
Eddie van Halen - Beat It (Michael Jackson)
|The usual Van Halen|
I did it as a favour. I was a complete fool, according to the rest of the band, our manager and everyone else. I was not used. I knew what I was doing. I don't do something unless I want to do it.Although I am not a big fan of Jackson, I still love this song deeply. Also, during my recent field trip, this guitar solo was the alarm tune of one of my friends which made wake up every single day on time for the had labor that followed.
Don Felder, Joe Walsh - Hotel California (Eagles)
|Walsh and Felder|
Jimmy Page - Stairway to Heaven (Led Zeppelin)
I’d been fooling around with the acoustic guitar and came up with several different sections which flowed together nicely. I soon realized that it could be the perfect vehicle for something I’d been wanting to do for a while: to compose something that would start quietly, have the drums come in the middle, and then build to a huge crescendo. I also knew that I wanted the piece to speed up, which is something musicians aren’t supposed to do.Stairway to Heaven has a record for the highest number of musical sheets sold ever since its release.
Slash - Sweet Child 'o Mine (Guns N' Roses)
