First Song Ever Learned

Recommended Posts

For me it was the riff from "Money" by Pink Floyd, then I learned the chords for "Breathe" and "Pigs On The Wing". I still don't know many songs after a playing for a couple of years though unfortunatley.

Beautiful Brown Eyes - the bane of every wanna be rocker kid in the mid 60s. Weren't any rock teachers around in those days. No wonder I gave it up for 30+ yrs.

Guess I'm the oddball of the bunch...Don't know one single song thru...know lots of intros, but just never got into playing someone elses stuff. More into experimenting I guess, even when my friends gave me tab I always seemed to drift off into my own little world. Maybe thats why I'm not advancing as fast as I would like, maybe by learning a few songs I could grasp better how songs/melody progress. First song I could play something to, all the way thru{on bass} was The Nuge's "Stranglehold".
