    Good call on Hotel California. I came up with these:

    I'm Yours, Wonderwall, Hallelujah, You and Me, Stairway to Heaven, Under the Bridge, Everlong, Hey There Delilah, Say It Ain't So

    Also: John Mayer, Dashboard Confessional, Bruno Mars, Counting Crows, Maroon 5

    Half of the songs I listed, as well as a few that I didn't recognize. He was wearing a v-neck, which made it all the more hilarious

    This surprises me. I don't mind the song either but it is one I've heard attempted a few times.

    If someone busted out a decent rendition of Over the Hills and Far Away, I'd be fairly impressed.

    Guy was a total stoner, would never have thought he'd have the attention span to learn how to play guitar. He played Over the Hills... and totally nailed it. Couldn't believe my ears. Turns out it was the only thing he knew how to play. Someone had taught him that song and that was it.

    Maybe because I'm only 24 but I've never heard anyone try and play this. I would be pretty stoked if someone actually did. From now on I'm going to start requesting it until I hear it done.

    The guy who picks up the guitar in the corner may not have the skills for Blackbird. He may be more likely to go with Rocky Raccoon instead.
