For people who don't want to read the whole post - what are the simplest, easiest songs you've ever learned to play? For people who have a minute or two.... As much as I'm not a fan of newer music, they're certainly making life a lot easier on the working bassist . My band shot out a text on Thanksgiving that they wanted me to learn one more song that was requested for a wedding yesterday. This was on top of 6 songs I was already working on for this weekend. My adrenaline pumped and I was about to simply text back, "NO!" I'm so happy I learned to control my texting trigger finger. I took a breath and said I'll listen to it first. Because I use Transcribe to learn songs I can see the wave form of the tunes so I can often tell when the bass is popping in and out. I listened to the first chorus, got the notes, jumped quickly through the other areas of the song and accomplished a first for me. I learned a 3 and half minute song in less than a minute . You can do this too thanks to the marvels of modern music!!!! I of course threw the tune on a USB and listened a handful of times after that in my car, but yeah... that's all I really wanted to say. What have been the easiest songs YOU'VE ever learned to play?
