A Simple Answer.
A quick search on my local record store revealed one of the most popular songs of all time: “One by One” by The Cars. I knew that song immediately! I’d love to learn it, even if it is so many years after I’ve learned it. But I also have a theory:
Learning the songs on Guitar Player is like learning the songs on one of my favorite TV shows: The Office. While I haven’t watched it in years, when I see an episode of The Office they tell me what songs are in it. It gives me something different to talk to my friends about and reminds me of a time where I could laugh at my TV again. But I’ve never had the pleasure when listening to the song.
To prove it I chose the song “We Got the Beat” from the episode “Permanent Midnight” from season 1 of The Office (which aired on NBC, a network that has a large and loyal fan base, and a lot of great music from which to choose).
That was quick. I knew exactly what I wanted to learn.
How long? It was so quick that I finished and began another program right then but had to stop my studying because I couldn’t remember where I put my book. I could not believe that I hadn’t even started “Permanent Midnight” yet. I knew I’d read the book already (which I read in January 2006) but never got around to it, for example. That’s why I was surprised when I read it! (I would have remembered it, though, had I actually read the book yet to begin with, but now I remember in retrospect how much I haven’t.)
You see, I used to have two books for all my study sessions… two books full of knowledge just sitting in a drawer. The books I used in my study sessions for Guitar Player are the ones I used as reference and then did a quick read on a song.
What songs should I study on guitar?
There is no wrong choice of songs. And what makes it hard is that I have many, many songs that I didn’t have access to in my life and had to take notes on. The music of my life, my family, and my song will always have some value to me.
I chose a short list of the songs that we learn on Guitar Player. I know I’ve left out a couple of the best-known songs and some other songs I love
