Default songs you find difficult to play.

for me 'little wing' by hendrix is pretty hard, except for the first couple bars. im still learning it so i guess ill see.
i hear 'beret' by bach is really hard, though have never tried it. can anyone here play 'little wing' as it is on the album? (axis: bold as love)

Fantasie Impromtu by Chopin is almost impossible for me. The speed is just unreal and the fingering is so complex. Maybe one day ... *prays*

Everything I ever tried to play by Lizst just baffled me. The guy was obsessed with arpeggiating. Also, Gershwin is perhaps surprisingly difficult to play exactly as its written, but that was probably because he put a lot of pointless notes into his chords, so you find yourself leaving them out semi-intentionally.

EDIT: Singing-wise, music by anybody with a really high voice is difficult (Jeff Buckley, Queen... Michael Jackson is pretty much impossible but fortunately I don't want to sing his songs so much). That's only if you sing it in the original key though. Actually, if you tranpose the vocals there are almost no non-opera songs that I'd say were that technically difficult to sing. Maybe Grace and Eternal Life by Jeff Buckley and um, that last one off OK Computer.

I feel your pain lol Ever see the sheet music to 'La Campanella'? I think Lizst may have been suffering a breakdown at the time!

Although its really hard to play solo, I'm pretty sure he could have just written his music as piano duets and then it would have just been a grade 5 jobby. He just wanted to show off!
