    Re: can you name the song with just one note?

    That's a tough one because not too many songs open with a single note/chord like that...usually it's a quick series of notes/chords.  
     
    A couple I can think of that I would probably able to recognize from the first note/chord would be Godzilla by Blue Oyster Cult and Back in Black by AC/DC.

    One note -- Sloop John B, which is why I put in on my other list. That first note, you know the song.

    With most song, one note is hard, but with many song on my list you hear the first chord or two or just a couple of notes, and you know the song.

    In Response to can you name the song with just one note?:
    I got the idea from the Best Opening Riffs thread. How about songs that you could name on one note?     There is one I can think of the Beatles A hard days night.            Can anyone come up with more?

    "Hard Day's Night" came immediately to mind when I saw your topic. Also "I Feel Fine" and "Helter Skelter" by the Lads as well.

    Probably "Sweet Home Alabama." And "Heartbreaker," by Zeppelin, but probably because I love that song.

    Surprisingly, there are quite a few, but Hard Day's Night is known before that first chord even ends and that is pretty fast.

    ok, i was racking my brains (or in this case, my brain!) for a song that only had one note in it
    sometimes i am too literal for my own good

    I can't quite place it either, but I'm pretty sure the artist was Lou Reed.  Or maybe the grungy Neil Young.

    I'd recognize the Beatles "A day in the life" with just the last note of the song.It also happens to be the longest recorded single note.

    Just heard this one on the shower radio: "For What It's Worth," by Buffalo Springfield.
