Default What are the last few songs you learned?

Hi,

I am looking for some new material to learn and would love to hear what others are learning.

This week I learned Laura Marling's Sophia.

Thanks.

I'm learning the songs in Richard Saslow's "New Art of Ragtime Guitar", in the order they appear...highly recommended. Right now working on the sixth one, Coney Island Cakewalk.

Great song, a "milonga" (Milonga de Ayer) written by Abel Fleury with this version played by Dilermando Reis (a great Brazilian composer/guitarist).

+1. Same EXACT thing here. IMHO Coney Island Cakewalk is a cakewalk compared to Boogaloo Down LaRue and Reagpickin', except for that crazyfast single-note run.

Definitely highly recommended!

Yeah, I do that one too. Goes well with the Dylan song added in there:

I've been on a high energy music kick lately, adding tunes that will compel people to get up and dance... no band has ever done this better than CCR, so this month crafting renditions of: Heard it Thru the Grapevine, Proud Mary, Down on the Corner. Have You Ever Seen the Rain, Bad Moon Rising.
