The first song you learned on an instrument.
What instrument? What song?


Mine was on an acoustic guitar, Dad taught me this:








It's a two chord special, super easy but super good and once I knew it a little more I could go off on random tangents and wailing part way through Big Grin

Likewise, if you're talking about the basic riff.

But then the first song I learned all the way through on the guitar was "The Stars at Night are Big and Bright, Deep in the Heart of Texas."
Even tapped the guitar three times where the song would indicate clapping. Big Grin

RE: The first song you learned on an instrument.
Pfft I got you chumps beat. The first song I learned from beginning to end was the uber difficult About A Girl by Nirvana.
I was having a brain finger fart trying to learn an actual difficult song as my first entire song so my friend showed me this one and I banged it out in five minutes. It's retarded easy like any Nirvana song but I still go back to it whenever my brain and fingers aren't cooperating.

Crazy Train was the song I was trying to make the first one I knew all the way through, but that has yet to happen because Randy Rhodes was awesome and I suck at solos.

Oh and trumpet.

RE: The first song you learned on an instrument.
The year before I got my own guitar my cousin showed me how to play the rhythm parts for Looks That Kill by Motley Crue. Then no other cover songs for years. Before I learned a whole song by another artist I had already been on the Grammy ballot. I tend to go backwards every once in a while. LOL

Chopsticks on the piano.
