    Judas Priest's You've Got Another Thing Comin. I've always loved that tune and have wanted to learn it for ages, especially using the thumb for the F# in the main riff like Tipton does.

    Learned "rats" last night, it's really fun to play.  Love those bar chords at the end.

    I just can’t get dissident down, the tab I found just doesnt feel right.  Any recommendations?

    Did you get the PJ Anthology?  It has all the official scores thru Lighting Bolt.  It is $75 which is kind of expensive, but it is nice quality.  Check Misc > Books in the shop.  There are a few pages shown to let you know how it looks.

    I think it's pretty accurate, but I don't use it that much. The print is miniscule.

    It is the "official scores" for 130 songs (no Lost Dogs).  I'm assuming 100% accurate, although reading reviews on Amazon some disagree.  It does NOT have guitar solos included (it must be too hard to transcribe something that melts your brain ;))

    The font is a little small and the book is big, so I usually take pictures of a song I'm interested in and then use an iPad to read the music or print them out.  At the very least, it looks very nice on a coffee table or as a collectable displayed on a shelf ... basically the price of two posters.

    I Got Id is one of my favorites to play. We used to cover that from time to time with my old band.

    Trying to learn We Built This City (yes, that one) to teach to my boys. Its their favorite song somehow. Since it's their favorite song, hoping it motivates them to practice basic chords.
    A little trickier than I thought it'd be. I'm what I call myself an advanced beginner, but kind of tricky rhythm in some parts and weird chords. Changed the key to use mostly G, D and C chords to keep it basic. Kind of fun so far.
