Latest song you practised

Here musicians can talk to each other about making music etc. Of course if you are not a musician you are still welcomed to this board, but the topics should somehow be about making music.

Latest song you practised

Post by Me, My Enemy » Thu Jun 12, 2008 1:20 am

Well, haven't seen a topic like this before here. It's like the Last albums you got or something. you know the system.

I started maybe two days ago with my guitar:
Seek and Destroy (Metallica)
Hallowed be thy name (Iron Maiden)
practised them today as well and repeated Aika Multaa Muistot (Sentenced)

Bass Guitar:
only repetition today:
(oh these are many...there is some crap for the school-band in it too -_-)
Fear of the Dark (Maiden)
Paradise (Stratovarius)
No One There (Sentenced)
Getting Away with Murder (Papa Roach)
All these things I hate (Bullet for my Valentine)
Taivas Lyö Tulta (Teräsbetoni)
No More Sorrow (Linkin Park)
Lost in Hollywood (System of the Down)
Schrei nach Liebe (Die Ärzte)
Junge (Die Ärzte)
Breath (Breaking Benjamin)

Piano:
(only repetition as well)
my first song I wrote (has no name lol)
My Immortal (Evanescence)

Singing:
No One There (during playing bass guitar, but I'm ill and have throat problems so it sucked)

well...I hope this doesn't already exist.
Hope you have fun posting.

I'm normally a guitarist, but lately I've practised these songs on keyboards:

Deep Purple - Child In Time
Beautiful and epic. The opening is probably the greatest keyboard-solo I've ever heard. AND I CAN PLAY IT!!!!!11! Fuck you Jon Lord! You couldn't beat me! :P

Ayreon - Dawn Of A Million Souls
Great song and simple enough for my n00b-skills.

I always use that little break to improvise something funny. :D
I usually play the beginning of the "circus-melody" from Entrance of the Gladiators (0:12):

It's so interesting which songs you all can play...lol, and I play like crap *moep* :roll: I couldn't ever play Speed of Light for example I suppose

But at least I practised my song on Piano today very often and managed to put some vocals in it :) And to find a name :)

I'm probably worse than you. :P

Last song I learnt part of was the intro to Ensiferums Dragonheads. Chuffed I can play that great riff! :D

I don't know...I think it's difficult to be worse than me (at least in guitar playing...piano it's not so difficult anymore)
I don't know the song of Ensiferum, but I'll listen to it and the riff :)

Well...today I was allowed to play on the steinway piano in our school and I practised 2 of my own songs and Evanescence - My Immortal there.
On bass guitar I repeated a lot:
Iron Maiden - Fear of the Dark (+ singing...want to learn to sing+play)
Stratovarius - Paradise (+singing)
Sentenced - No One There (+ singing)
Papa Roach - Getting Away with Murder (+ singing)
songs of Die Ärzte (+ singing...they are so easy, the singing isn't a problem there lol you don't need to concentrate at all)
Breaking Benjamin - Breath (without singing...too difficult)
Linkin Park - No More Sorrow (without singing...strange rhythm)
Bullet for my Valentine - All these things I hate (partly with singing)
Cradle of Filth - Her Ghost in the Fog (I love to play it)
Teräsbetoni - Taivas lyö tulta
started to learn
Red Hot Chili Peppers - Under the bridge ...or something like that was the name. Tried to play it just because someone said they have such difficult things. Well for once it was interesting, but somehow...not for always playing stuff by them.

Ah,...that's it

I used to play Liebesträum (a.k.a. Rêve D'Amour), but I can only remember some parts of it (and I'm far from being able to simply take a short look at the score and remember the whole piece).

I tried to learn Consolation No. 3 earlier this year, but Chopin's Grand Valse Brillante got me distracted. I'm learning Schubert's Serenade now, but it's not Liszt's transcription (in fact it's a quite simple piece).
