   Hmm... I'm not sure if you realize this, but today is Friday. That means it's time to smoke crack and worship Satan! Wait, no... No, that's hot what today is for. Today is when we have the Friday Night Guitar Thread! We like players of all skill levels, so come on in!

   TheRealBuhddha  Hello and welcome to another Friday Night Guitar Thread! Like normal, we'll go ahead and get you started!  Initially, I didn't have anything new for this thread - but I did have some stubs and some time. So, while a bit rushed, we'll go ahead and share something new (and original) this week. It's nice to share original work, right? So, why not share some this time around!  A Lesson in G min (The Usual Suspects)  While that's a bit rushed, we hope you still enjoy it. It's not nearly as complicated as it sounds. If you can play Thunderstruck, you can probably get your head around this one.  Rock on, Goats! Rock the fuck on!

   Cheap_beer  I was setting up my recording laptop and just playing around with my new electric drum kit.  My timing and rhythm are off but after 25 years I didn't expect much.  My Rust

   Sleazy  Hello everyone. Here is a song that I wrote and recorded a while back.  It's about something I think we all can relate to...  Crazy Women

   Welcome to the Memorial Day Holiday Weekend edition of the Friday Night Guitar Thread! We got some music to drink to, or grill to, or just listen to, and we would sure love to hear you play some music and share it with us as well. Any skill level is welcome. Any instrument. Lets celebrate!

   TheRealBuhdda  It's Memorial Day weekend. I have something for this...  CCR - Fortunate Son

   Sleazy  Here is another song that Chris and I played out on the porch the other night.  I Love This Bar

   popticalillusion  I didn't get anything finished, but I will post what I'm working on. I broke out the acoustic guitar and had some interference with the microphone so I just stopped there. I plan to replace all the guitar parts with my own, leaving just the drums and vocal (instrument) in the final version.  Peaceful Easy Feeling by the Eagles. None of the bands I were in ever covered it and it's been a favorite song of mine; so I'm learning it.

   Sleazy  Here is a song I wrote about a story told to me by a WWII vet years ago. It seems appropriate to share on Memorial weekend.  Battle of the Bulge  I really should try to re-record this and make it right, it was just so annoying to put it all together at the time, I got sick of doing it, it's so long and I was just happy to have got through it once without fucking it up too much.

   My buddy Chris came over again the other day for a little while, and we sat out on the porch in the nice weather with no mosquitoes and played a couple songs. Here is us playing Merle Haggards White Boy

   Last night my son had some friends over and they had a cookout in the back yard and were drinking up a big giant bottle of crown royal. After we ate, my woman went and fell asleep so I went and visited the drunk people for a little while. My son asks me if I want some magic mushrooms and I said hell yeah and at a handful of them. I came in for another beer when they hit me, and I saw my guitar and I picked it up and played it all fucked up and shrooming. I just played where the music lead me. I recorded some of it, and it's nothing I ever played before but I think its cool Acoustic Jam

   popticalillusion  I edited my acoustic track better and remixed it some. I think i am ready to move on to the other guitar parts now and hope to be finished by next Friday. Peaceful Easy Feeling Edited. Sounds a bit better now.

   That's right, it's Friday night. So, grab a beer or your best girlfriend and come listen to some music created by your peers. Listeners of all skill levels are welcome -- players too!

   TheRealBuhdda  Hello and welcome to another FNGT! Like normal, we'll go ahead and get you started with a track of our own.  This week's track stems from a question posed last week. We got it done much quicker than I expected. This one goes out to @popticalillusion - hoping to match their favorite genres at least a little.  It Sure Ain't Pop (the usual suspects)  That was a fun one to put together. Life is short, so take the time to rock out!  Rock on, Goats! Rock on!

  Sleazy  Here is a song I wrote and recorded a couple of years ago that has only been shared once.  Give Me Attention

   The other night my buddy Chris came over to jam some tunes. It just so happened that a couple other people showed up here before he got here with three cases of beer looking to play some poker. So we all sat down and played cards for some hours. When that was done we tried to play some music, but we were pretty drunk. Here is our version of Billy Joel's T]he Keyboard Man, we kind of made it through LoL

   CameIsMiller  One night on the other place Crazy (now Sleazy I assume) posted Over the Hills and Far Away, and I said I used to be able to play it quite well. So one night I got good and drunk and tried to play it. It's not as bad as it could be after not having played it in like a decade, Over The Hills And far Away don't know if I posted that before, can't look it up over "there"

   popticalillusion  Never Mind The Bollocks, Here's The Sex Pistols Damn. I thought this song would be easy, but I used a different recording procedure this week which made the editing worse. Here's Anarchy In The U.K.!

   Buy me a drink, sing me a song, Take me as I come 'cause I can't stay long. It's the Friday Night Guitar Thread, so come sing along!

   Grandmacaesar  Hi guys.  I don't thnk I've shared this here before.  It's a cover of a Pine Box Boys song.  The Gravedigger

   Crazy  Fuck You! I'm A Rock Star!

   Guitar in the Sky


   Fight or Flight



   Sit On My Face

   Fuck It

   TheBuhdda  Man, we are such slackers. I don't think I've shared this in a while, as I needed to upload it to my sharing site.  Fur Elise  It has been more than a month since we've done something new. We should have something new next week... should...  I'll go through and listen to tracks tomorrow. I'm enjoying my 'night off', so to speak. (I'm also busy writing stuff in another browser.)

   Crazy  Fuck the World


   Missy Johnson

   She's A Whore

   Opie's An Idiot

   TheBuhdda  The title of this thread is from one of COF's favorite songs. I forgot, but now I remember, that I actually recorded it a while back.  Tom Petty - Mary Jane's Last Dance  Enjoy!

   That's right! It's Friday Night! It's time for yet another Friday Night Guitar Thread. Everyone is welcome - even listeners of all skill levels and musicians who are just starting out. We ain't picky and we have low standards!

   Grandmacaesar  Hi guys, I hope all is well.  It's hot here, but I've seen lots worse.  Here's an original, I just recorded and mixed it over the last couple hours.  Tribe

   OGRellik88  Well headed off to date night with the wife. However he is a wikiloops track I added bass too.

   hit-n-run  This is a song all the beginning piano players play. It's also a jazz standard/vocalists song.  Bouncy, happy, jumpy, poppy stuff.  Heart and Soul

   Crazy  Here is me and my woman and my friends  playing the Talking Heads song Once In A Lifetime

   TheBuhdda  Hello and welcome to another FNGT! Like normal, we'll go ahead and get you started. We actually have something new, but it's probably also new to you! So, you might enjoy it....  Nothing But Thieves - Ban All The Music  Rock on, Poaler Bears! Rock on!

   Crash! Bang! Boom! Pow! It's the 4th of July weekend Friday Night Guitar Thread! Come one, Come all! The US Revolution Army used music for sending orders to the troops. Let's share some music!

   TheBuhdda  I'm feeling particularly burnt out, or starting to. So, thanks to @crazy for opening the thread.  We had something new last time. This time, you get something that I don't think has been shared much. At least that's going by the fact that it wasn't uploaded to the share.fngt.gq site...   Metallica - One   I should probably listen. It's a good song. Meh... Fuck it... I'm not in the mood to listen to music. So, I hope it's as good as I dimly remember.

   Crazy  When ever someone finds out I play guitar and says play something, this is what I play.

   My buddy Chris came over a couple days ago and we jammed all night long. Here is him and me and my woman playing Blue Suede Shoes

   Grandmacaesar  Hi guys, I hope everyone got paid today.  I recorded a new song today, but I'm having a problem getting it from my minidisc recorder to my computer.  My CD recorder took a dump.  Or maybe the last two batches of blank discs I bought are bad.  So here's something I posted in the past.  Features my offspring on marimba. Big Cherry

   Minimalarch  So first pickup went great second was missing the eye loops so it didn't work but I did capture a few minutes of one pickup in various voice amp models on my fender champion 100

   Crazy  Here is me and my friend Chris playing Breaking Benjamin's Diary of Jane

   Yup. It's Friday - and that means it's time for the Friday Night Guitar Thread. Everyone's welcome to contribute and I'll remind you that we have really low standards - so literally anyone is welcome to share the music they made.

   TheBuhdda  Hello and welcome to another FNGT! Like normal, we'll go ahead and get this started.  I should have some new live stuff. I don't. We didn't bring the recordings home with us. We'll work to get that sorted out. Until then, here's a rarely heard classic rock piece:  Allman Bros - elissa (eh #1 & tb #2).  Not only is that seldom heard, it's rather old. That's from June of 2019, according to the meta data. The missus wasn't the missus and was still pretty new to the guitar. So, it's pretty old and I think we only shared it once or twice. Ah well... We've got so much in the archives...  Rock on, Poalr Bears! Rock on!

   Grandmacaesar  Hi all.  I did eight chairs today.  Here's a cover of a Reid Paley song.  Take What You Want

   OGRellik88  Actully have just been practising this week. Here is another colab I did on wikiloops. I don't think I posted this one already.  Happy Friday.

   Crazy  Hey everyone. Here is a Johnny Cash song my buddy Chris and I played, Blue Train

   Here is a song where my friend Chris and I were just fucking around making noise when all of a sudden my girlfriend decided to sing over it. I don't know if what she is singing are lyrics to some song or if she was making the words up but I thought they were pretty funny. Here's the Dirty Boogie

   Hey everyone. Since it is Friday.  Welcome to the Friday Night Guitar Thread. Lets listen to the music of our peers and share the music that we can create ourselves. Its a far cry better than consuming the mass media. Come have some fun. Everyone is welcome!

   Rux  I recorded this Modest Mouse cover today for the thread. I hope to do something weekly; not sure I want to post originals.  Dramamine for FNGT

   Grandmacaesar  Hi all.  I recorded this to my phone a few minutes ago.  In My Defense

   TheBuhdda  Here's something from the archives - but you'll have barely heard it. It was recorded back in June of 2019, at the wife's request.  Alice Cooper schools out(eh #2 tb #1 & j b)  It has rarely been shared and appears only twice in the archives - and not for quite some time. It probably would have been better to share this when school was actually getting out for the summer months.  Ah well... School is still out.  Rock on!

   hit-n-run  I played this song almost every day for the last year and a half. Played it at least 5x sometimes 10x. Also difficult parts over and over. Wanted to destroy by guitbox. Hard truth is I can't play the guitar. Been trying to play it for like 8 years. At least I found out, I just ain't got it.  Dust in the Wind-Sungha Version

   Crazy  Here is me and my buddy Chris playing an old Dylan tune, Tangled Up in Blue

   Good Old Boys

   Guess what?!? It's Friday! That's right, it's time for the Friday Night Guitar Thread! Come join us in sharing your music, or just come listen to the music of your peers. All skill levels welcome, 'cause we have REALLY low standards!

   TheBuhdda  Hello and welcome to another FNGT! Like normal, we'll go ahead and get you started...  So, here...  Counting Crows - Accidentally In Love!.  I think that's the 2nd time we've shared this one. So, it shouldn't be that fresh in your memory. I just had to upload it to this site, 'cause it wasn't already there - leading me to think it has been a while since it was last shared.  Rock on, Poalr Bears! Rock on!

   hit-n-run  Sup fellers and felines. The bass of this song is so good that I just had to play it. It's really the best part of the song. But it's still a good campfire song even without the bass.  With a Little Help From My Friends

   Grandmacaesar  Hi guys, I recorded a song to my phone today.  And here it is.  Garden

   Crazy  Hey there people! I'm a little late cause shit keeps happening. Anyways, here is a song for you all to listen to. Dylan's Don't Think Twice

   Gimme an F, gimme an R, ah fuck it, gimme a guitar! It is once again time for the Friday Night Guitar Thread! Come share the music that emanates from your head or your fingers. Come listen in to your peers sharing their musical talents! Everyone is welcome. We have low standards, come join in!

   Grandmacaesar  Hi guys, I put in about 75 hours over the last week, so I got nothin' new.  But here's this, I think I shared it a year or so ago.  Too Far Gone

   TheBuhdda   One I doubt you've heard much...  This contains ZERO me... It's Biff and J, according to the notes...  Iron Man  Biff is on guitar, J is on bass. TheBuddha is not there. At least I shouldn't be in that recording.

   Crazy  Hey everyone, I don't have anything new for you all this week, but I do have this blast from the past that's pretty entertaining!  She Drove Me Crazy

   Give Me Attention

   Here is another one of the good times songs! Connie

   Yup. It's time for the Friday Night Guitar Thread! Just a reminder, our 5 year anniversary is coming up in two weeks! That's a long damned time in 'internet years'. So, come join in the fun with us tonight...

   TheBuhdda  Hello and welcome to another FNGT! Like normal, we'll go ahead and get you started...  It's too fucking hot to record. We have a project we're working on, but we've not made much progress. I'm also dealing with a situation I never really thought I'd say. We've finally cleared out storage lockers from about 2008. I now have more guitars than I can reasonably own. I don't even have enough room to store them properly, never mind display them. So, that's something I need to resolve.  Anyhow, here's something bluesy...  BB King: The Thrill Is Gone  Rock on, Poalr Bears! Rock on!

   Grandmacaesar  Hi y'all.  I hope everyone's havin' an awesome Friday.  I shattered the glass in the slidin' back door with the weed eater a few minutes ago, so here I sit with a beer and a bowl of top-shelf.  The whole world can turn to shit right now, but at least it's Friday.  I covered a Yardbirds tune.  I always assumed it was probably co-written by Clapton and Relf, but TIL it was written by Graham Gouldman, the guy who later co-founded 10cc.  For Your Love

   hit-n-run  I did this famous song called Girl from Ipanema. Really excellent guitar song. Girl from Ipanema

   Crazy  Good Old Alcohol

   Its the dog days of summer version of the Friday Night Guitar Thread! Come listen to some fresh tunes and sing and dance along with us! Play us a tune! Everybody is welcome, any instrument or even just sing. Come on in here..

   Grandmacaesar  Hi guys.  I hope everyone's havin' a Happy Friday.  I recorded a Zappa song to my phone today.  Big Leg Emma

   Crazy  We did a rendition of Stuck In The Middle with You

   TNN  Honky Tonk Uke

   Crazy  Here is an old grateful dead song we played. I enjoyed this one, I dont even know the song really, but its the dead so I figure I can noodle around on the guitar here and there to give it that dead flavor, and I enjoy that. Here's Athena

   Hi everybody! Hope you're all having a mighty fine evening.  My friend Chris came over not too long ago and we jammed out some cool tunes.  Here our version of the Cranberries Zombie

   Well, folks... This is it! As of today, the Friday Night Guitar Thread is FIVE years old! When I started this, I never expected it to last that long. So, come join us in celebrating the rather major milestone!

   TheBuhdda  Hello and welcome to a special edition of the FNGT! Like normal, we'll go ahead and get you started.  Five years. Five goddamned years... We've been doing this thread for five years. That's pretty much an eternity in Internet Years. That outlives so many fads, even real-world fads! I dare say, at this point, we're pretty much an institution.  In our time, we've had people be born, we've had people die, we've had trauma, and we've had joy. We've been, albeit small at times, a community where you can come share your work - just like what was asked in the very first guitar thread all those years ago.  And so...   I could make this a long speech but, you know what? Here's the track you've been waiting for!  Shut Up And Rock (The Usual Suspects).  I hope it was worth the wait! Count the individual guitar tracks. We had both a wet and dry channel, and we recorded the dry channel to re-amp the whole thing. I dare say it came out just fine.  Rock on, Poalr Bears! Rock on!

   CryptoBard  I've got a brand new song for you guys.  Tanx  I just finished it last night.

   Crazy  Happy anniversary!

   Grandmacaesar  Happy Anniversary!  Here's a cover of an unusual love song written by They Might Be Giants.  I'm Your Boyfriend Now

   hit-n-run  Congratulations Buddha on your 5 years in this thing. Pretty cool.  I posted this song by Sinatra called Fly Me to the Moon.

   Crazy  My brother came to town yesterday and we met up at our mom's house for supper. I noticed he had a few instrument cases sitting in the corner so I asked him what he brought. he had an accordion, a concertina, a ukulele, a mandolin, an autoharp and a dulcimer. So after dinner we played together some for the first time we have jammed together since we were 5 years old. I dont really know how to play those instruments so i faked it i on the ukulele. here's us doing copperhead road

   I wrote this one in honor of COF but I guess it's in remembrance of him now. The Cynical Old Fart

   TNN  Here's OddSock an odd one for the fifth. Happy anniversary.  Edit: Lol, that's the first time I've seen a FNGT submission downvoted. This must really suck balls.

   TheBuhdda  How about, A Life Well Lived

   Crazy  Crashed would not even exist without the FNGT having existed.

   Here is a song I played with my brother with him playing autoharp. Who would've thought the railroad wouldn't last?

   When my friend Chris was over here jamming with me the other day one of my woman's friends stopped by to visit her for a little bit and she had some guy with her. he was liking where I lived and seemed decent enough. we played hang me for them. Then the left. The next morning I find out that the guy was found dead in his bed. Crazy

   It is once again Friday night and that can only mean one thing. It is time for the Friday Night Guitar Thread! Come one, come all! Everybody is welcome. All skill levels. All instruments. It's time for the music so get in here and start dancing!

   Crazy Hello everyone! Last weekend my friends Chris and Verle came over to sing some songs and drink some beer. We played a version of Golden Earrings Radar Love

   TheBuhdda  I shared a biggie last week, so obviously I've got nothing new this week!  However, I have something only shared once. It should definitely be shared again.  This was played over a drum track supplied by my amp, I'm pretty sure. It was a demonstration for the missus about the versatility of the bass - including using it as a percussion instrument.  It's called A Masterclass In Bass  Gnaw on that for a minute or two.

   Grandmacaesar  Hey guys, sorry I didn't join in last night.  I'm working on something fresh though.  Here's something I shared a while back.  I wrote it for a science-fiction program, but it didn't get used.  Psy Fie

   Crazy  Here is one more song from last weekend with my friends Which side are you on?

   While Verle was over we told him that we had played the Cranberries Zombie a week or so before and he wanted to try it so we did it again, with Verle singing most of it, so here's The Zombie Apocalypse

   That's right, it's Friday! That means it's time for the FNGT! Those that know, know. Those that don't know, are encourage to come learn. Or not... We're gonna rock out regardless. I do what I want!

   TheBuhdda  Hello and welcome to another FNGT! Like normal, I'm going to get you started.  We're actually working on our Christmas track already, but we didn't record anything new. As it was our anniversary not long ago, I figure I should share a track from our last anniversary.  This one is called Four Years Gone.  Rock on, Poalr Bears! Rock on!

   bopper  Dear Buddha, I got that guy named @Crazy to help me with a link to my song Time Passages but he said it was so bad that he cut it off and only wanted to just a few seconds to play.  So here it is.

   Grandmacaesar  Hi guys, and Happy Labor Day weekend!  Here's a new one I just finished a few minutes ago.  Last Picture

   Crazy  Hey, happy Friday. My buddy Chris came over the other day and we were trying to think of a song to play, when we couldn't think of anything, I said to him, lets write a song. So we wrote a song.  Stanley

   The last time Verle was here along with Chris we tried to play this song that Verle's mother had made a record of way back in the 60's. I dont know if she wrote the song or just sang it. Either way, we tried. Every Beat Of My Heart Is For You
