Dagan shows us the 8 songs that are ALWAYS played in guitar stores. Turns out it's not 'Stairway To Heaven' anymore!
In this very tongue in cheek video, Dagan shows us some of the most overplayed songs he's seen whilst working in PMT. Please note - we ACTIVELY encourage you to play these songs! They are great songs to hone your skills, learn new tracks and test out the sound of amps and guitars. They are great songs that we LOVE to hear you play, so keep doing it and keep pushing yourself to learn new songs!
Check out the honourable mentions too! We've all played these songs at some point on our journey.
Bonus points if you get the Tool album name correct ;)

In this video, Dagan discusses why Stairway to Heaven is played (or not played) in guitar stores, and how learning some of these "overplayed" songs can help you really hone your skills and also help you test out how a guitar feels in your hands.
Did you know we hear John Mayer a lot in guitar stores? Did you know that 'Schism' by Tool and 'The Chain' by Fleetwood Mac are almost always played by bass players trying out gear?
In this fun video, we've rounded up the most overplayed songs that are actually some of the best riffs to play on guitar. They might not be the easiest riffs to play on guitar, but they're certainly the best songs to play when you're just starting out as they help you learn new skills whilst you're just starting out!
We also answer that great question - "is 'Stairway To Heaven' banned in guitar Stores?" paying homage to Music Is Win.
