    Teachers: Essential Cover Songs

    I need to learn some covers of all different levels.

    1. What covers do you think are essential to learn
    2. What songs are students always asking for

    Smells like Teen Spirit and that one deep purple song, I'm not even sure why I know the two, but apparently everyone else does. even if I'm jamming with the most kvlt of motherfuckers they seem to know one of those two for some reason.

    When I was teaching, I always taught House of the Rising Sun as a basic chord and arpeggiation exercise and Symphony of Destruction because I was so fucking sick of teaching Nirvana.
    I'd give my right arm to be ambidextrous.

    Good way to make the whole chromatic string skipping thing a whole lot less boring.

    There's no such thing as an "essential" cover. Or, rather, an "essential" cover is one that the student desperately wants to learn.
