Default Songs You're Learning?

Any MB musicians trying to learn any songs right now?

I recently heard Erik Satie's "Vexations" and I'm trying to pick it up by ear for the guitar, then when I get back home I'm going to give it a whack on the piano.

Feel free to use this thread for tips as well if you're struggling with a piece.

I'm currently learnig Supertramp's "Rudy" on piano. The runs in the intro are a blast to play. Might post it when I'm done.

I've known Billy Joel's "Vienna" for a while now, but I'm currently transposig it down so I can sing it. I'm plannig on recordig and postig it in the next few weeks. Gives me a chance to test out the little accordion I just picked up.

I'll try and get it up for you once this sore throat goes away. Right now, I make Bob Dylan sound like Art Garfunkel.

I'm trying to learn Life On Mars by David Bowie on piano the way it's played on the album, it's not exactly an easy task.

I'm also learning Christmas Time Is Here, and Treehome95 on piano.

I have a book with all the sheet music for A Charlie Brown Christmas in it. Used to be able to play "Linus and Lucy" and "Skating" pretty well.

That would make things much easier than going by ear and tutorials.
