    Monkey Business Man by Michael Manring is the hardest I can (loosely) say I've learned.
  8. A song that you can hear in your head but can't play. Those songs are the songs that touch people. Those songs are the hardest ones to play.
  9. damn straight! hehe

    for those of you non-punks.. that's rancid!

    The unison line in "Sir Duke" is the toughest thing I've played. I can't decide whether it's easier on the 4string or 6string.

    No question about it...Tarkus by ELP.
  15. At one time Smoke on the Water or Wild Thing were hard to play.

    On the other side, I agree Cornbread that line in Sir Duke is a tough one.

    Not to mention it requires 26 frets.
  20. Maxwell Murder is right. Its going so fast that when I tried to learn it, I couldnt tell if the tab was right (I found 2 versions), I attempted it for about 2 seconds, then promptly gave up :D
