My favorite song to play on my fiddle is "Whiskey Before Breakfast"

I am partial to the old fiddle tunes, Irish, Scottish, Welsh, and a lot of American Appalachian and Texas Swing. There are plenty drinking songs in those.

I like the electric 6 string myself. Bon Jovi has some cool tunes to drink to. My favs are blaze of glory and dead or alive. I can play both, though not so well when hammered. Sounds good to me though :D Improvisations the bomb!!!
Another band whom I knew personally was an east coast band here called the Matt Minglewood Band. If you have a chance to download some of their tunes, check them out. Good party tunes, lots of fiddle and heart wrenching lyrics. There is history in most all their tunes.

I like all kinds of music and can play almost any stringed or brass instrument but I mostly play the Mandoiln and Guitar.

I like to play some Robert Earl Keen songs (Merry Christmas to the family and Barbeque) or a little Shawn Mullins (Sunday Morning Coming Down and Soul Child and many more).

Some nice sippin' whiskey, the guitar and some mellow songs ---- it don't get no better than that :D (well! the Swedish Girls bikini team, but that's another dream :roflmao: )

If you're into electrics, Fender has a product called an Amp Can. It is a amp about 8" in diameter, 10" high, powered by a rechargable 6 volt motor cycle battery. Runs all out for 8 hrs no problem. Accepts 2 guitars or 1 guitar and a mic, seperate volume and tone controls for both. Deadly for outdoor parties or the beach! Try one, you'll fall in love with it! I do a lot of heavy appregio picking, scorpions etc, and clean power chords like Krokus, it sounds great.

I have 2 late 60's Gretch and a jackson charvel. They all sound beautiful in their own way. With a 5 string MW, I guess you are hitting more of a bassey note?

I bought a Hummingbird for pretty cheap in the mid 80's, when Gibson's reputation was still in the toilet but they had actually started making good guitars again. I had a Gibson in the sixties but had sold it to keep the wolves away. When the time came and I was looking for a new ax I was surprised that I could afford this one, not knowing about the crap they had been building. Turned out to be a nice one. Years later I learned how to decode the serial number and found that it had been built on my birthday.
I try to play enough to keep my fingers in shape for those times when we get together for a jam, which is never often enough.
