This may be the easiest song to play on guitar after Smoke On The Water and Ode To Joy – aka the other two songs I have mastered on guitar. Although I studied piano as a child I haven’t picked it up as an adult and the world is probably a better place for it.
Nonetheless I like to fool around learning bits and pieces and a friend of mine with a solid obsession with guitars (his living room is full of them, all in pristine condition), taught me Smashing Pumpkins’ Disarm. It also allows me to wail like Billy Corgan whilst playing it, so I think I’ve achieved the pinnacle of musical success. It was either this or my recent mastering of the electronic drums on The XX’s VCR, but anyone with two hands and an iPhone app can do that.
