As far as music is concerned, I've always figured I was born in the wrong generation for one simple reason: I've never been a technically adept guitar player. Sadly, if a song has more than about four or five chords it's just too much of an effort for me to bother learning it, and when it comes to soloing, I never play anything the same twice. This of course means I get lucky and play something interesting once in a while, but often I just flounder 'til I run out of notes. After that - well, let's just say thank the powers that be for inventing feedback & distortion.
But I think I would've got along just fine in the 60s: I would've been good enough to hold my own in some local garage band, smacking out the three chord wonders & improvising impossibly inappropriate solos while mugging in front of a gang of local teenagers at a high school dance on the weekend, or perhaps some ratty little club where they pay you strictly under the table, if they can find one still upright at the end of the night. But that's neither here nor there: like Popeye said, "I am what I am," so the best I can do is live out my 60's pipe dream in an imaginary set list of the greatest psychedelic punk pop rock garage band classics of that era. I've actually played most of these at one point or another in my life, so I can say most of them have been road tested. I'm sure you'll have plenty others, but you can't play more than about a dozen songs in any given set, less if you include extended guitar solos (and maybe even the obligatory drum solo), so the only thing wrong with this list is all the great songs left out (they'll have to wait for the second set, or what the heck, the encore):
"Nothin'" - The Ugly Duckings. My choice for the opener by an obscure Canadian group. This song is tough as nails and serves notice: tonight is strictly a take no prisoners affair.
