Track 1: Shine On You Crazy Diamond Parts (Erin’s Picks)
This song is one of my all time favourites; I can listen to it anytime of the day. What I like is that it starts off slow, and then it builds and builds. It’s changed the way I think of music.
Track 2: Hard Luck Woman – KISS
I generally just love this song. The guitar is great. It’s a song that you can listen to anytime of the day.
Track 3: Another Brick in the Wall, Pt. 2 – Pink Floyd
I really love the melody in this song and how it sounds. This song has a heavy influence on my style of playing because I like a lot of slides. Roger Waters style of playing is something that I try to emulate when recording or playing live; it’s a different style that isn’t heard very often. I like it because you are sliding all over the bass and that’s what I like to do.
Track 4: Next to You – the Police (Hannah’s Picks)
I love everything about this song; the drums, the bass, the guitar. It’s changed my idea of what music is and what it could be. The Police have shown me how to fill out the empty spaces with only three instruments, which can be tough when performing live. But mostly, I just love the intensity of this song.
Track 5: Lightning Bolt – Jake Bugg
Jake Bugg was one of my first teachers (figuratively speaking). Through him, I learned how to finger pick the guitar, and to sing in my own way. Although I love every song off his first two albums, I chose this one because it only has three chords. It’s inspiring to hear a song so full of life with only three chords!
Track 6: Gypsy – Fleetwood Mac
As a singer, I had to choose one of my biggest influences and inspirations – Stevie Nicks. There are so many songs sung by Stevie Nicks that I could have chosen, but I’ve always favoured this one because of the dreamy-ness of the whole thing. It’s very pretty, and I like pretty songs.
Track 7: The Rain Song – Led Zeppelin (Lennon’s Picks)
It’s just such a good song; it’s peaceful. Plus the backing tracks to this song are really nice. What I like the most is how it starts off slow and calm, but then, out of nowhere, the drums come crashing in. It’s a perfect road trip song.
Track 8: I’m Only Sleeping – The Beatles
This song has a sound that I just love! The reversed guitar and backing harmonies gives the whole song a smooth and dreamy feeling. And plus, I like to sleep myself.
Track 9: Monkey Man – The Rolling Stones
I really like this song because of the piano – it has a modern sound to it, which I find pretty neat. I also really like how the guitar enters songs. And Charlie Watts’ style of drumming is solid and unique – he doesn’t follow a specific style, he does his own thing. It’s controlled chaos.
