The Stones are local (NJ) and I've been having fun with a few tunes , One of my all time favorite tunes to groove on is Brown Sugar. One minute of joy as a sampler.

Cool. At the moment I’m enjoying the few slide parts that I have on “Curtis Loew” and “Werewolves Of London” on Piano.

My band covers a lot of Stones. Those songs are a joy to lock into. "Tumbling Dice," "Rocks Off," "Child of the Moon," "Monkey Man," "Cant You Hear Me Knocking," and "Sway" are rhythmic beasts.

We do some ABB. I absolutely love playing the rhythm on "Don't Keep Me Wondering," while playing the harmony part on "Revival" is a white-knuckle challenge for me. Once we make it past the instrumental part, the vocal/song part is a joyful victory lap.

The Replacements' "Can't Hardly Wait" and Uncle Tupelo's "We've Been Had" are great grooves too.

I've been playing with some fellow ABB-fan musicians. "Blue Sky" is always a joy to play, but "Ain't Wasting Time No More" is nice to take for a slide ride. Getting the chance to play "Dreams" is always a fun challenge - so many places you can take it, but you really got to keep it moving.

Here's a band I played with a couple weeks ago playing "Ain't Wasting Time No More" for the first time: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=B-RHcpLVutw

Play & sing on acoustic. A few of my all-time favs I've probably played the most are These Days, Poncho & Lefty, Straight
to Hell.

More recently Pirate Looks at Forty and And It Stoned Me are two I love to play/sing a lot.

Liz Reed in front of 3,000 people at The Beacon. I'm breathtakingly good on lead guitar and than I wake up.

I don't have enough musical talent to open a guitar case. Wish I did because I think you guys are able to appreciate music more because of your ability to actively participate by playing an instrument.

the thread didn't say "on guitar"

as a drummer, some of my favs are Elizabeth Reed and Low Spark

for shorter tunes, Little Wing (either D&D or Jimi versions), Hard to Handle

Brown Sugar is a good one. Talking Stones I like Gimme Shelter and Honky Tonk Women.

As for the ABB, One Way Out, Hot 'Lanta, Jessica and You Don't Love Me are some of my favorites.

When I’m singing and playing I generally stick to songs that sound nice while being played simply and without progressions that are too intense. After all these years, singing can still throw off my playing and vice versa.

Recently I’ve been really working on Jackie Greene’s “By the Side of the Road Dressed to Kill.”

I used to spend time playing tunes like "All My Friends" and "Please Be With Me". Actually a bunch of the the early Boyer & Talton songs were great songs to teach yourself how to play guitar to. I wore out a lot of vinyl back then learning those songs like "Living In The Country", "Pretty Friend", etc. Boyer & Talton - wonderful songwriters.

All instruments welcome. I've been playing some mando of late. I was on a Blackberry Smoke kick loving the acoustic beauty of One Horse Town. I got that down and then transposed the song chords to mandolin and other the little opening riff sounding like REM's Losing My Religion it sounds nice.

Any Robin Trower is a blast to play, but I really dig the tempo change in Day of the Eagle.

Nice selection of Stones songs. Monkey Man is one of my fav's from them and
Can't You Hear Me Knocking is right there too. That opening riff is stellar and the whole song is a beast after that.

Here's a song I've had stuck in my head and love playing, a melodic strum with the walking bass line and fun to jam in. Kinda like These Days and Willin'. Rather than a video of me, here's Frankenreiter and Grundy.

Whipping Post into Mountain Jam. We don't try are replicate them note for note - that would be quite a chore! But we do something along the lines of the live 1970 from the Fillmore version of WP into the basic framework of the EAP version of MJ. Really covers the essential ABB trip - from the minor/dorian feel of WP to the major pentatonic feel of MJ and some slide work with plenty of space for jamming and a chance for all band members to solo. Big fun!

I like to play AWTNM on piano. Also a bunch of Neil Young on acoustic & harp. Powderfinger, I am A Child etc. Family & neighbors kind of wish I didn't enjoy that as much as I do.

Current favorites to play & sing (on acoustic):

Seven Turns....tuned down to key of C. I can sing it MUCH better.
Van - And it Stoned Me
Jason Isbell - Stockholm....again lower in key of G
Poncho & Lefty
The Weight - practiced again for a group strum/sing-along recently. Always fun not matter how many times i've played it and possibly the single best campfire sing-along song of all.

+ couple of originals I'm trying to finish

Acoustic fingerstyle here

Like others here I learned to pick on Please Be With Me, still a fave

Little Martha

Water Song

Keep Your Lamps Trimmed and Burning, standard warm up live

Blues Run the Game - probably the song I like playing best, one of those you feel like you lived the song
