Answers GQ2: The Revenge - Round 6

The plot definitely thickens, and it's no longer obvious who's gonna win this thing. Anyway; the songs were:
  • Song 126: Eric Clapton - Tears In Heaven. As you may or may not have figured out, I'm not exactly Clapton's biggest fan. Partly because I have found that I'm capable of playing his sons - like this one - even when so drunk that I'm having a hard time sitting in a chair, as I found out back in B-town. Anyway; y'all nailed this one.
  • Song 127: Guns'N Roses - November Rain. Pretty much just playing the solo from memory there, but it's so known that this one take was all that was needed. All of y'all found it. Man; I used to be really sick and tired of playing this solo.
  • Song 128: Black Sabbath - Iron Man. Or; Iron Man plus, I should say. This main riff is so slow, I couldn't help but unleash some descending harmonic minor up in heah'.
  • Song 129: Santana - Black Magic Woman. Only Anders found this song - I'm impressed. Of course I would have also accepted Fleetwood Mac, but this is meant to be closer to Santana's version. This song was actually the second song my old band ever learned and rehearsed - immediately after being able to do a passable "Hair Of The Dog" by Nazareth, I think. Or maybe it was "Knockin' On Heaven's Door"? Oh well.
  • Song 130: Iron Maiden - Afraid To Shoot Strangers. By far my favorite song from the "Fear Of The Dark" album, and a song we managed to pull off pretty convncingly live, actually.
With that all out of the way, here's the Score for Round 8:
  1. Anders/Cathy/Pigeon (tied at 8 points)
  2. ...
  3. ...
  4. Sondre (6 points)
The Total Score
now looks like this:
  1. Anders/Cathy/Sondre (tied at 36 points)
  2. ...
  3. ...
  4. Pigeon (29 points)
Congrats to the winners
and good luck with round 7! The victory is pretty much up for grabs here with only two more rounds to go.

Yeah, you played them like a deck of cards!
Let me see if I get this: You want Clapton to play at your house as often as you can afford, you get drunk with his sons and you've mentioned him several times on this blog. But you still don't consider yourself a big fan? Man, you have high standards!

Ah; you caught a typo. Good job there, Chief.
