Oasis - (What's The Story) Morning Glory? is 20

Twenty years ago today, Oasis put out one of the best loved rock records of all time in (What's The Story) Morning Glory?. If anyone doubted Oasis songwriting prowess, this was the album to put it to rest. The album has sold over 20 million copies and is on just about everyone's top albums lists.

The album features so many amazing songs and fantastic songwriting. The tunes have big choruses, hooks and lots of guitar soloing. They are fun songs to play live and are accessible to all levels of musicians. I was in one band that used to do "Don't Look Back In Anger" and I got to play "Morning Glory" with another. Soloing out on the "Morning Glory" chords is one of the most fun times I've had on stage. They're such good songs that they're equally at home being played by one guitar and a vocalist or by a full band.

Click play and revel in these now classic tunes.
