Answers - guitarquiz 10

There's always one song that noone finds, and it's typically one of the songs I thought would be the most recognizable. Oh well. The songs were:


  • Song 46: Green day - Basket Case. Annoying yet catchy tune. I'm semi-impressed that two of you found the song, seeing as how each and every "punk" band from the 90's sounds exactly the same. Kudos.
  • Song 47: Lynyrd Skynyrd - Free Bird. If I leeeeave you tomoooorroooowwwwww....would you stiill remember meeeee.... THE Redneck Anthem, but still a great song. However, don't ever watch a video of Skynyrd doing this song, as your impression of the song will forever be tainted by the crowd shots. I'm a Southern guy, but the backyard BBQ ensemble depicted in the live footage sort of makes me cringe. Still; a cover of this Confederate Classic will be the final song on the Agressive Melodic Academic metal album Grad School that Joe and I will eventually record and release.
  • Song 48: Guns'N Roses - Knockin' On Heaven's Door. If not for the solo, Bob Dylan would have been the correct artist here. Man oh man was I sick and tired of playing this back in the 90's. "Spælla nåkking".
  • Song 49: Metallica - Whiskey In The Jar. Verse rhytm from this trad tune, first made famous by Thin Lizzy. Predictably, a hyooge live hit in pubs and other venues where alcohol is served. Yay.
  • Song 50: J.J. Cale - Cocaine. All y'all answered Clapton, and just on principle I ought to dock y'all like a hundred points for that, but since the version Clappo stole from Cale is pretty much identical, I guess I have to concede.

The Scores for round 10 look like this:

  1. Pigeon (8/10)
  2. Anders/Cathy/Sondre (6/10)

The hyooge Kahuna, the Grand Daddy of Them All, the Total Score is now:

  1. Sondre (69 points)
  2. Pigeon (60 points)
  3. Cathy (56 points)
  4. Anders (53 points)
  5. Torbjørn (6 points)

Congrats to Pigeon and Sondre, and good luck with Quiz 11

Wilhelm said...

...are you calling Anders out, Pigeon? Drawing a line in the sand? Taking off them gloves?

Anders said...

All y'all answered Clapton,

Did sooooo not answer Clapton. Unless you spell his name it C-A-L-E. Having both Cale and Clapton albums, of course I would answer Cale!

Green day - Basket Case
Hate those songs that are just the power chords. Anyway, familiar with Green Day, but can't really recall this particular song. Threw out Blink 182 as I didn't knew this song. Was actually thinking a bit about Green Day, but thought the riff was more in the style of Blink 182. Oh well, this is as close I've every been on just guessing that atist.

Lynyrd Skynyrd - Free Bird
Got that one right.

Guns'N Roses - Knockin' On Heaven's Door
Got that one right as well. I really don't like G'n'R so I wasn't quite sure about the solo. But the chords were there, though.

Metallica - Whiskey In The Jar
Dang. Embarrassing. Although I can't recall if I've heard Metallica's take on this one, I've actually played Whiskey In The Jar. Still didn't get this one. Not even close.

J.J. Cale - Cocaine
The other song Clapton stole from Cale. On the other hand, if W-meister accepted Clapton on this one, he should accept Dylan on Knocking.

..you did now?

Blink 182 has a style of their own now? I sure wouldn't be able to recognize that...

But the chords were there, though.

Yes; in popular music, the sequence G-D-C (or here G-D-Am-C as I pimped it up) is really unusual. 8-)

Although I can't recall if I've heard Metallica's take on this one, I've actually played Whiskey In The Jar.

Since I only played the verse structure and not the famous intro/main theme, it wasn't that simple to find, I guess.

The other song Clapton stole from Cale

You got that right. And I would have accepted Dylan for "Knocking"

Check you SMS... It starts with "Cale - Cocain, Lynerd - Freebird." I didn't wrote JJ, because I thought that would be obvious....

Pigeon said...

Cale !!!!!!!

It's John Cale the bass player of the Velvet Underground !!!!
So his answer is wrong, he has to lose 1 point !!!!!!!!

Btw, come and get me, you can dream for your beer, you loser

I also remember sending you an sms/ e-mail earlier in the week stating that you should not accept Clapton. That would be like accepting Ike and Tina Turner on Proud Mary...

Anders said...

A keyboard warrior, eh? I'll get you next round...

What the hell, Captain Keyboard...you got the points.

Seriously though; from what I recorded there you wouldn't be able to tell the difference, so it might have been both versions

Wilhelm said...

LOL...that's some brutal grammar right there......

j/k

Anders: You livin' high on the hog in K-town for a couple of days now? Low-ridin' and collectin' old debts? Ain't no scrubs gonna have no twenty dolla' meal when Anders is owed money, punk.
