Last song you learned
What's the most recent song you learned how to play? It could be in any instrument.

My most recent ones were' I burn today' by Frank Black and ' I want you' by Bob Dylan. I want to learn 'don't let it start' by tmbg but I'm having a bit of trouble learning it cause I don't know to read music, I do it by ear. Both songs I learned were in the guitar btw.

I've been working on my own piano rendition of Long Season by Fishmans as of late. I've been learning a lot of stuff from Fishmans, Les Rallizes Dénudés, Duster and Pale Cocoon.

"I Burn Today" is an amazing song, and I adore that whole album.

I used this live version to learn it and it was pretty easy, it's a fairly simple song.

I have a couple of other Frank black songs I want to learn like 'western star' and 'chip away boy' but I'm glad another member here know his stuff. :thumb:

I figured out the Rick and Morty theme on guitar this weekend to the delight of my friends.

Zhanteimi 07-19-2016 08:47 PM

Big fan of Teenager of the Year, too.

Black Francis 07-19-2016 09:09 PM

From that one I know how to play abstract plain and whit noise maker. That album has a lot of great songs and i keep discovering good songs I overlooked from it like superabound.

That album particularly imo is what the new pixies should sound like, sadly that's not the case.

EB. 07-20-2016 02:35 PM

Last thing I learned was Oh Well, Oh Well by Mayday Parade on bass. :]

Aloysius 07-20-2016 05:08 PM

Dos Preludios by Joaquin Rodrigo. I had to do it as part of a recital for my masters last month. Back to working on my own music again now.

Don't tell me you and Innerspaceboy are the same people too?

i can only play like, a string on a guitar xd

Pencil 07-24-2016 05:55 PM

Most recent song is, "Road Warriors" from The Rippingtons Live, featuring Russ Freeman. As a jazz/funk drummer, this is a fun play. And being captured live with audience response makes it just that much more fun when playing to it.

crimsonite 09-01-2016 03:45 AM

Abba - Voulez Vouz on the guitar

Nickfar 09-03-2016 07:23 AM

Last song i learned is pink floyd 's learning to fly

Black Francis 09-03-2016 08:17 AM

A couple of days ago I learned 'Run around' by Blues traveler. I only learned it cause the chorus is fun to sing.

Mister Mushroom 09-09-2016 10:55 PM

About 10-15 minutes ago I learned the intro to Silver Rocket by Sonic Youth.

Didn't get the entire song yet, but I'll get there.

ribbons 09-24-2016 03:22 PM

Neil Young's "Here We Are In The Years". Going on vacation this week, staying in a farmhouse and taking along the mahogany parlor guitar - which really has the right sound for this.

Lysman 12-17-2016 06:08 AM

The Rains of Castamere in Game of thrones. What a tune

Lorenzo L. 12-31-2016 06:04 PM

Airmail Special! Charlie Christian's nice jazz tune :)

_Regatta 03-02-2017 02:03 PM

Under The Bridge - RCHP

RiPS 10-06-2017 06:27 AM

Cancer - My Chemical Romance

Manson 10-06-2017 06:38 AM

Oasis - Don't Look Back In Anger
no clue why I pushed back learning it.

TCBP 11-14-2017 07:57 AM

Comfortable - John Mayer

A nice mellow tune

Lesbian With A Gun 02-04-2018 06:49 PM

Help! by The Beatles...

But then that's the third song this week...
First was I'm A Man of Constant Sorrow, old country song... And then it was that & Sympathy For The Devil by The Rolling Stones... And after as I'm getting happy with I'm A Man Of Constant Sorrow remembering all the words to Sympathy For The Devil real quick and what order the verses go in and so fourth, I start learning Help!
(I'm sort of learning all 3 at the same time)...
It's all good except one is D,A,D,G,A,D tuning and has a capo on the third fret.
All on the same guitar I got last week, I got 3 guitars too last week, but for some reason, I've been learning them on my 1951 Stella by Harmony H929 parlor guitar I got online/ from a guitar store in NYC, NY/Rivington Guitars and I had imported into the country/paid import duty and VAT etc to get it out of customs. - Guess I like it. It's not the nicest guitar that I've got/it's not even the nicest guitar that I got that week/it's not even the nicest guitar that I got that week that's of its age and guitar type (I got a nicer early 1950's Catania Carmelo parlour guitar from a guitar shop in London as I was waiting for it to arrive from NYC/it's not the only Stella by Harmony I got that week (I also got a rare 1969 Stella by Harmony H913 12 String with a pro set up that sounds amazing from a store in Nashville TN)/it's not the only guitar I ever imported - It was the first though (arrived and cleared customs first thanks to FedEx and also, I bought it hours before the 2nd one from America) (that H913 from TN)... but it is the guitar I got last week that I'm playing on the most/learning new songs on and stuff - even if it's not the nicest. I'm having fun with it/I like it.

This guitar looks cool strapped to you and... Sounds awesome... The action is high and it's a cheap 65 yr old guitar that's factory stock but I still find myself playing it, for some reason, almost like it has a hold on me..

SmokeAndMirrors 02-14-2018 07:21 PM

Dissection - Thorns Of Crimson Death.

uncle salty 02-15-2018 12:07 PM

I finally got through Maiden's Fear Of The Dark flawlessly. (Adrian Smith's part).

Of course, it's on air guitar driving to work, but I'm telling you, I nailed it.

Treefire21 02-16-2018 11:53 AM

Lots of the music I play is more classical stuff. I play a bunch of Mozart, Bach, and Beethoven. I do learn some newer stuff, but to me it's not as fun. I play the piano, mellophone, trumpet, and French Horn.

Properte 02-25-2018 03:30 AM

Just starting learnig guitar. Have almost learned Bad moon rising by CCR, but that is one of the easiest there is tho.

Akai 03-30-2018 07:07 PM

Been learning some stuff from watching Samus' playthrough's recently;

crukster 04-03-2018 05:22 AM

Haydar, haydar - Ali Ekber Çiçek. My Dad's favourite.

Lucem Ferre 04-14-2018 07:38 PM

Welcome To Heartbreak by Kanye West.

GunmouthGrace 04-16-2018 02:48 PM

Greasy Heart. I'm actually really pleased with how it sounds.

Akai 05-04-2018 04:35 AM

Had a few sessions over yesterday and learnt this;

HowardThomas 01-29-2019 09:30 PM

Blood and Roses was the last song i learned by Guitar. I'm looking forward to learn 'can't you see' by Marshall Tuker Band.

Like the lyrics? If so, I've never considered learning the words to hip hop "learning the songs" until now, at least not in a traditional sense, but it is sorta the same thing isn't it? About equal to learning only the guitar part of a rock song.

Frownland 02-06-2019 09:36 AM

Delivery too, not just the words. It takes some serious practice to rap as ****tily as Kanye does.

TeruTeruBozuBoy 06-24-2019 05:24 PM

Relearned Washer by Slint on the guitar this morning. It's a fun one.

Captain Beefheart 06-25-2019 07:54 AM
