Hi Martin,

'Anything Ron plays' is probably too generic, sooooo here are a 
few suggestions:

(1) The intro to "Basket Case" by Green Day.  I think it's pretty 
much a given that this has to be on the list.

(2) The snippet from EJ's "Cliffs of Dover" where (IIRC) you 
hold down the high e string at the 15th fret and alternate 
picking that with 'sweeping' back and forth across the 19th and 
17th frets.  That has *got* to be driving music shop folks nuts 
by now.

(3) Hmmm ... I'm not 100% sure, but I'll bet there is a portion 
of Metallica's "Enter Sandman" that probably qualifies.


Annoying music shop workers for <mumblety-mumble-mumble /> years!
