    So what songs are you guys currently learning? This is a sort of thread that can keep going on and on.

    Right now I have a playlist of the songs mentioned below. Each song has a unique thing to it which makes it either fun/diffucult to play.

    A Perfect Circle - "Rose." On this song I capo my 4th fret (so my bass is tuned like EbAbDbGbCbFb) and I get to use the fuzz. In the intro I turn the Roar (bass) all the way down to get that "transistor radio" sound, then when it kicks out I crank the Roar all the way up.
    Dream Theater - "Under a Glass Moon." The time signature is just so, wow. Definitely a thinking song.
    Dream Theater - "Learning to Live." Another weird timing song. Jumps around quite a bit too.
    King Crimson - "One More Red Nightmare." Diminished = great. I get to bust out the phaser in this song too. :hyper:
    Tony Levin Band - "Black Dog." A real fun solo song when I through my Oct up/down Whammy harmony on top of it.
