At the moment I'm learning a whole heap of Tool songs... but on piano. By ear. I am frustrating myself with it.

I'm currently trying to get a few Lilys songs down on the guitar, but damn Kurt has to always throw in weird **** and it's really frustrating trying figure out what excatly he's doing. So Far I've got "Pookah" and "Gravity Free Atmosphere of MSA" down.

I've also been trying my hand at a David Grubbs song "A Dream to Help Me Sleep" and damn am I having problems getting down the timings.

currently learning is N/A

favourite to play - hendrix's voodoo chile (slight return). sure it's a cliche answer but whatever. it was fun as hell to play back in the day when i played covers.

My favorite bassline i'm jamming on the last couple days an He Is Legend's - Dinner With A Gypsy, just a badass bassline and its been stuck in my head. I gotta play it over and over again to get it out.

It might sound lame but I'm just about finished learning "Girl from Ipanema" by Gilberto/Getz, from the album "Jazz 'Round Midnight." Now I just need a female lead that can come anywhere close to Astrud Gilberto...

That, and Bright Eyes "Arc of Time."

stan getz's 'Jazz Samba Encore!' is one of my top jazz albums ever.

I don't really learn that many songs, more just riffs, but I will share anyways.
On guitar i like to play "Number Of The Beast" by Iron Maiden.
On the keyboard i like to play Jump by Van Halen

I am currently learning:
On electric guitar i'm learning the solo of Final Countdown by Europe.

Learning to play acoustic guitar. I am not learning songs at the moment, but I am learning to play in the style of Miyavi and also some fingerpicking.


I also want to learn something by Andy McKee eventually.


Also I'm learning to play the harmonica, but I don't know what songs to learn on that. I would appreciate any suggestions. (In the tuning of C)
