I have learned and played so many songs it would be impossible for me to list them, however as a style or by artist may be easier:
Classic Rock (of course) such as Journey, Aerosmith, Eagles, Starship, ZZ Top, Cheap Trick, Heart, Pat Benatar, Bon Jovi, Billy Squier, Ted Nugent, Bryan Adams, AC/DC, Kiss, Scorpions, Dokken, Def Leppard, Night Ranger, Winger, Ratt and other 80’s hair bands.
Obviously quite a bit of Van-Halen, including the most popular ones etc…
