Default Hummer is the most fun SP song to play on guitar change my mind

those octave chord bends are satisfying as fuck

I tried to learn and it hurt my fingers so NO it's not fun at all.

the opening bits of I Am One are more fun.

Dude what a coincidence, I was literally just playing Hummer about ten minutes ago and had just set the guitar down from Luna when I saw this thread.

I was thinking about livestreaming myself doing an acoustic tribute to Siamese Dream and playing all the songs

and yes I would probably agree Hummer is a strong contender for most fun SP song to play. I also really love playing Behold! The Nightmare

It will have been great to have known you before some musician sued you for billions of dollars.

I have used that little descending outro riff in Hummer as a warmup for like 20+ years now without learning the entire song.

Can any of you guys get the harmonics on Zero down perfectly? I never could, but I also fucking suck at guitar.

Agree with op. I am not a good guitarist and it’s way easier than I expected it to be. Prob the only solo I can replicate. Or could anyway, it’s been a while.

hummer is a fun song to play
1979 is also fun.
Billy wasn't shy to monopolize that octave pattern.
