favorite albums/bands to play along, I never blast them over a P.A. or anything, I play along with headphones on.. Usually the best ones are albums strictly in a tight standard tuning so I can blend in and just be another guitar track..

Smashing Pumpkins - Siamese Dream
Grandaddy - Sumday
Stereolab- Mars Audiac Quintet/Emperor Tomato Ketchup
Weezer- Blue
Yo La Tengo - I Can Hear the Heart Beating as One
Dinosaur Jr. - Yr Living all over me
Bob Dylan - Highway 61 Revisited

Any more good ones?

The holy bible by Manic street preachers is my favourite to jam along with. Nothing else really =/

hm ...

David Bowie: Ziggy Stardust (rise and blabla)
Johnny Cash: Live at St. Quentin
Nick Cave: Murder Ballads
Hank Williams Sr: Whatever, everything
The Who: Live at Leeds

But in times of youtube, I don't store everything that I want to play to. So mostly it's just "I want to play that song" and find it on youtube.

Recently it's been:

Guided By Voices - Bee Thousand
The Warlocks - Rise and Fall
Chinese Stars - A Rare Sensation
The Velvet Underground - White Light/White Heat

And that's basically because that's what I want the band I'm in to sound like.

Ozzy: Blizzard of Ozz

The guitar was always about where my level of technique is, and Ozzy's range in those days matches mine more or less exactly.

Most robert pollard and GBV

Really any blues stuff, too, because that is really easy to sound good when jamming to.

Don't really play along to records anymore. Used to when I frist started learning, some of my faves for learing bass were Janes Addiction / Ride / Fugazi records as the bass is quite prominent & easy to hear in the mix.

For guitar I think I learnt to play all of PJ Harveys Dry when it first came out on an old classical guitar, i was still a bassist then so didn't own an electric. Sonic Youths Goo was a good one too.

velvet underground, joy division, black horse (mongolian band, with alt tuning on an acoustic you can come up with cool stuff to improvise), bratmobile/frumpies, nirvana, guitar wolf, gories, coachwhips.

all random albums with random songs of theirs that i like, no specific full albums.


on bass i used to teach myself tool, violent femmes, sleeping people, shellac and also this tori amos live album because the bass player on it is really good.
