The Top Classic Rock Songs In 5 Minutes

If you are on a mobile phone or tablet, try visiting this project on a computer. Play the C major chord over and over again until you get the hang of it. Do the same with the other two chords. In the studio Lynyrd Skynyrd created the distinct lead sound by double tracking the guitar. Lynyrd Skynyrd had four platinum albums in the 70's, three of which went double platinum.

Lynyrd Skynyrd recorded some amazing material between 1971 and 1972 at the famous Muscle Shoals studios in Alabama but they were shelved. Rossington's big grinding chords and Ed King's slide guitar deliver its message about music industry dishonesty with blunt force, but the song also works as an anthem for anybody who puts up with Lynyrd Skynyrd bullshit to hold down a job.

The song requires only 3 chords: D, G and A. Just follow these three chords in this order, for the whole song. With the departure of guitarist Ed King, Skynyrd were now a two-guitar band, and the rhythm/lead roles of Rossington-Collins are more well-defined on this release.

So if you listen to a song and hear more than 4 separate chords being played, this is not an easy song. Soon enough I had like fifty to sixty different songs to choose from, sitting out there in The Wild. Released on Atlantic Records, the album reunited Lynyrd Skynyrd with producer Tom Dowd and mixer Kevin Olsen, who'd been the group's soundman on tour in the Seventies.

Few guitar licks are as memorable as the opening plucks of Lynyrd Skynyrd's 1974 hit Sweet Home Alabama. These are the ten Lynyrd Skynyrd deep tracks every classic rock fan should hear. Simple Man, co-written by Ronnie Van Zant and Gary Rossington, has become one of the group's trademark songs.

Nevertheless, the album was their first to reach the Top 10, peaking at Number 9 and quickly achieving Gold status, though it includes none of the band's most well-known songs. In 2007 while promoting LIVE II, the band was invited to record a live session for DJ Mark Klein's weekly Long Island Blues Warehouse Radio Show' which was recorded to 2 track.

Comin' Home, an original track written by Allen Collins and Ronnie Van Zant, displays more of a country/rock feeling than many of the harder, bluesier tunes recorded during these sessions, and displays the influence of west coast late Sixties rock bands like the Youngbloods and Quicksilver Messenger Service.

It's classic Skynyrd through and through - wall-to-wall and tree-top tall - a triple-guitar barrage that goes balls-out from the steamroller opening riff to the slo-mo fade.
