So i came up with this idea yesterday as i was driving to a nearby music store to buy some new strings...I can only play a handful of songs all the way through...
Songs i can play
Hold On To My Heart-W.A.S.P.
November Rain-Guns N' Roses
Comfortably Numb-Pink FLoyd
Wish You Were Here-Pink Floyd
Crazy Train-Ozzy Osbourne
Looking at that list...i'm actually disappointed...I mean, i haven't even learned the standards like Iron Man, Smoke On The Water, Paranoid, or simple three chord stuff like the Ramones. I mean, i've learned riffs, but never bothered to finish...Well, NO MORE!
Starting next week, for the next 52 weeks (a year, for those that didn't know that) I am gonna learn a complete song every week...so in the end, i will know roughly 58 songs...Ranging from incredibly easy (I Wanna Be Sedated) to the very hard (My friends want me to attempt to learn Blackened, so thats gonna be the last one). A range of a ton of artists, from AC/DC to Warrant (probablt not gonna go to ZZ Top...maybe later) and lots of genres.
So, next monday, i'm gonna start work on the first song...All The Small Things by blink-182.
The hope is that this experience will help me become a better guitarist and improve my range and musicianship...
Will update soon...Laterz \m/
