I’m always open to suggestions for future lessons, but I’d prefer to look at songs that haven’t already been done to death on You Tube (though admittedly I have broken this rule a few times!) And since it’s quite time consuming to put these lessons together, I’ll only do stuff that I really like.

When they left the stage, that fellowship fell away. They would climb into their van and ride to a hotel or their next show in silence. Two of the members, Johnny and Joey, didn't speak to each other for most of the band's 22-year history. It was a bitter reality for a group that, if it didn't invent punk, certainly codified it effectively – its stance, sound and attitude, its rebellion and rejection of popular music conventions – just as Elvis Presley had done with early rock & roll. The Ramones likely inspired more bands than anybody since the Beatles; the Sex Pistols, the Clash, Nirvana, Metallica, the Misfits, Green Day and countless others have owed much of their sound and creed to what the band made possible. The Ramones made a model that almost anybody could grab hold of: basic chords, pugnacity and a noise that could lay waste to – or awaken – anything.
