I was printing a load of stuff today so I brought my guitar downstairs and played along with a load of MP3s I've never normally have a chance to play along with (burner's broken so they're stuck on my hard drive!)....anyway so far today I've tabbed and learned:

Bell X1 - Monkey 61
Bell X1 - Still Selling Shoes
Bell X1 - Here She Comes
Damien Rice - Front Door
Damien Rice - We Kill/Lazy Situation
Damien Rice - Childish

and between today and yesterday I've had to learn the following to teach my students :

Gary Moore - Still Got the Blues
Metallica - Fade to Black (already kind of knew...does this count!?)
Some song by Arch Enemy
Green Day - Holiday/Boulevard Of Broken Dreams

I was gonna have a crack at damien's version of Heaven Belongs to you and Bell X1's Reacharound (in case you haven't noticed I'm going through a Damo/Bellies phase today!)...but then I got bored.

I haven't learned anything that required actually sitting down and practising in a while....anyone any recommendations ? My electric's not feeling the best at the moment (fell over and cracked the tuning heads) so preferably something acoustic!

I'll try but starting Monday I've got 6 exams in 6 days (yes, including Saturday ) and 2 more the week after, so for the moment it's study study study.....

They're not that difficult, here's a rough guide:

Here She Comes - chords include C G D and Em (in various orders)
Still Selling Shoes - chords include F G C (in various orders)

I've already half forgotten them - I only played them through once and tabbed them at the same time! It's mainly just easy chord work and the odd hammer on (except for Monkey 61 of course!). Anyway that should be enough to get you started!

theres no reason cept ali likes the song and so do i and shes a class singer, so i said i'll play it on guitar and she can sing it when i go to cork! there could be a record deal somwhere! but if theres ever an official public performance, youll be hte first to know!

I was wonderin if any one has seen the film croosroads?? and could you tell me if so where i can find the tabs for the main guitar dual i think it is, where Stevie ray just throws of his guitar and storms out??
Thank you!!

PS it starts of with rapid hammerons and pull ofs, then goes to arrpegios that go from one octave to another!! i think... then.... a climax of rapid scales startin at the too and walkin down to hammers on and pull off?? I dunno if that helped. then i think stacatto on the two top strings and finish. (With a few other bits in between)

Thumbs up what i'm learning

I'm trying to learn "NEON" by John Mayer and "Why Georgia". These are the two best riffs i've heard this year, love the acoustic sound on WG and i have an acoustic version of neon on video too!

I havn't been really learning any new songs this week. I've been too busy getting surgery done (they did inner ear surgery on my left ear wednesday. It went perfect, but I have to have this cotton in my ear for a day or two, and all the scars are hidden under my ear lobe, and the stitches are a new type, they just disolve and fade away, so no pulling them out, yay). The other part of my time is finishing a new song I am writing. The last song I fully learned was last week, I learned 2 new songs from the new dmb album, Stand Up and Dream Girl.
