What's the last song you learnt on guitar?

thought I'd make this topic so we can get some idea of guitarists levels and they can keep updating .. see whether or not they challenge themselves (something im very guilty of not doing) But anyway I just spent 4 hours today (which should have been spent revising ) learning The Killers Mr.Brightside, a song I thought I could never play as its got alot of stretching, though now my left hand is .. pretty sore and it's probably a light dose of RSI! I better lay off a while, I got all the parts learnt but havent quite mastered the transitions yet!

But anyway whether your playing polly wally doodle or steve vai post away!

Married with Children (Oasis)

Both rhythm AND bluesy/solo guitars

Great song for an acoustic duo!

I just gave a shot at Mr. Brightside also. The openning shapes are hard to change to, so I cheated by tuning a bit differently

I'm working on Love of my life by Santana right now, it's all easy except for the solo at the end...

haha, yes, sometimes i really need to keep pressing and learning new songs, even one new difficult song that you learn does wonders to your playing. it just gives you more ideas and different styles that add to your own personal style, especially when you're writing your own stuff. its the best thing a guitarist can do

Yesterday, I learnt Zooropa. I played it with backing track. It is quite easy to play it, (a few riffs) but it is very difficult to get the sound similar to the Edge's.

I like this song very much even though I am not big fun of the album Zooropa.

Ok, in the last few days.....................

Breakfast at Tiffany's Deep Blue Something ( Love the wee cool solo bit)
Whiskey in The Jar Thin Lizzy
I'm a Believer The Monkees
Staring At The Sun U2
Whose Gonna Ride Your Wild Horses U2
Losing My Religion REM
Man On The Moon REM
Don't Look Back in Anger Oasis
Live Forever Oasis
Cannonball by Damien Rice
Star Star by the Frames
Lola by The Kinks

Really I've decided to busk and you need instantly recognisible songs to play, instead of my own no matter how good I think they are, I'm not that good but entertaining which is a plus

I`ve finally got the sound of "Until The End Of The World" and "The Fly". It sounds quiet similar to The Edge version with a Zoom II 505 pedal.

But to play identical like The Edge is impossible.

The sound of Edge in full flight as we all should agree is quite possibly one of the hardest things to recreate ever on a guitar unfortunately for us

The last song I learned to play (yesterday) was Heartland.

Beautiful, yet so simple - the hallmark of Mr. Edge.
