Romeo & Juliet - Mark Knopfler
Landslide - Fleetwood Mac

IDK, maybe they're a little beyond my abilities at the moment but I like learning them because there's both finger style and strumming there.
Interested in how you are playing The Weight. If fingerstyle, what pattern?

Hallelujah (Jeff Buckley's version) fingerstyle-- I can do it clean at 180bpm, sloppy at 190bpm, and barely recognizable at 200bpm (my goal). Getting there though! This one has really taught/reinforced to me the value of a metronome app!

Also Layla, unplugged version--still having issues with some of the quicker changes from open to barre configurations.

I've been trying to mirror this tute note per note. I like the way it's played. The toughest part has been the intro and getting that hammer on picked smoothly. It's getting better.
