What's the very first song you go to when you pick up your bass or guitar to warmup?

nice
My warm up has always been Money by Pink Floyd. Its simple, uses multiple strings, good tempo, and Pink Floyd kicks ass anyway.
No particular song. Just run through a bunch of blues progressions, shuffles.

I take a big swig of beer, Crack my knuckles, and just go.
I quickly play Hysteria by Muse, it's fast, gets my fingers warmed up, and it runs over 3 strings, it's great!
I normally warm up with Sunshine of your Love by Cream and For Whom the Bell Tolls by Metallica
My warm up is YYZ, easily mastered
Just kidding

I gave YYZ a try for the first time a few months back and it completely humiliated me. I was like nope, not trying that again LOL
