The Best Of Oasis: Definitely Maybe // 20th Anniversary – Excerpt

The Importance Of Being Idle – Alex G

With a title derived from the masterpiece of a literary genius, it’s hardly a surprise that as a song gifted to us by a music genius, ‘The Importance Of Being Idle’ follows suit. As the very first Oasis song to grace my ears, as well as contributing significantly to my desire to learn guitar and write music, it will always be very important in my mind. One of the most expertly structured pieces of music I know of, yet such a simple, rounded chord progression. The same goes for the solo; it just goes to show you don’t have to be Hendrix or Van Halen to write a brilliant one. As for the intro/outro; there’s not much else to say other than: wow!
