    A new thread: let‘s hear what you are practicing today- songs you are learning to play!

    Atm I‘m practicing „Jigsaw puzzle blues“ from Fleetwood Mac. A nice little song based on a classic jazz tune. Danny Kirwan played all the guitars on this song, the B-side of the „Albatross“-single.
    Listen to Dannys vibrato and those smart little melodies. Simple but tricky to play.
    I‘m sure Django Reinhardt would have loved this song!

    I may be about to learn the show Mamma Mia so I can help my daughter play it for her school production.

    “Big Yellow Taxi” by Joni Mitchell. It’s in open D, and is real simple. Even I can’t screw this one up too bad.

    The solos on "Til I Hear It From You" by the Gin Blossoms. It's not one of my favorites of their songs, but it fit what I've been working on in my lessons.

    ABBA tunes are all easy three chord things. It's their harmonies that made them famous.

    Well, I'll submit mine even though I know no one here is going to know it or dig it:

    A punk/post punk '80s band from Northern Ireland who made very political music during The Troubles: Ruefrex and their top song "Paid In Kind." A good, gritty rhythm guitar song. (I'm a rhythm guitarist.)
