Slash Your Tires
C-Dm-G-C. I had been playing guitar for about a month when I heard this fantastic Luna song for the first time in '92. I even tablated the damn solo parts...boy was I proud of myself. Simple A minor pentatonic runs over a C maj progression, but you couldn't get a better song for a beginning guitarist than this. Once past this point, I would then tackle Television's "See No Evil," which I didn't perfect until 1994 sometime.
Listening to Lunapark now...The "Crazy People" song. (Haha)
