Hey its ollie. I've been mostly composing recently, but also a lot of practicing. 2 songs I pretty much got down and memorized are talk dirty to me by poison and santeria by sublime. Both songs are SOOOO FUN TO PLAY but not really anything that I would really learn a lesson from guitarwise. i just got my new rg, so now i gots 24 frets and a whammy to explore. recommend some good music for me to try and get down. Remember - not too hard - I'm just Ollie lol.

'Always with You, Always with Me' by Satch is pretty straight forward for the most part. The solo is trickier, but the whole song with improve you technique too.

By the way, I seem to remember you said you were TABing out 'Sound Theories' or part there off? How's that mammoth undertaking going?

Lol I Crazy train was the second song I ever played lol. Not much of a challenge to play, but to get the right intonation I suppose it could be good. Thanks tho!
Always with you always with me however sounds like a lot of fun. I love satch's ballad+shred style lol.

Thanks all those all really look like fun. btw, that buckethead song sounds very unbuckethead for the most part ('cept for the solo lol) stereotypically ya know? but its still awesome.

Oh actually I was taking sort of a short break for a long while.. Lol a lot of those songs put a lotta stress through your head. I started Soooo long ago and knew a lot less about music so I'm cleanin' up what I have now and postin it up on ultimate guitar hopefully soon.
