British Guitar Fakebook, 1975-today
January 22, 2013 11:26 AM Subscribe
I love playing guitar, and I love British rock/pop/punk (esp. 90s Britpop era). If you were compiling a list of awesome UK music to play on guitar from, say, 1975 to today, what specific songs
would you include?

It doesn't need to be virtuosic--I'd certainly include "Should I Stay or Should I Go" by the Clash, or "Connection" by Elastica (or Wire...)--but more complicated stuff (e.g., "Natwest Barclays Midlands Lloyds" by the Manics, or "I Am the Resurrection" by the Stone Roses, or "There's No Other Way" by Blur," or "This Charming Man" by the Smiths) is also very welcome. Looking for the songs you might want to play on a lazy afternoon, or coming back from a drunken night out.
Old or new, it's all good.
