    you should learn whatever you want. us telling you what to learn does not help you at all as a musician. listen, and if you hear something that you like, then learn it.

    Why don't you learn all of "The Real Me" so that if someone asks you to play a tune with them, you will be able to play the whole thing?

    I think that it's great to be well-versed in a lot of different styles, so I'm thinking some Jazz, some ballads, and stuff that isn't what you do already, would be best.

    Check out:

    Miles Davis' "Kind of Blue"
    Kenny Rodgers Greatest Hits
    Anything by Stevie Wonder

    If you're serious about it, there's weeks and months worth of valid, important and good music to know/learn, just with those three choices.
     
  6. She caught the katy - Blues brothers
    Sunday Mornings - Maroon 5
    Take On Me - reel big fish
    The Chicken - Jaco Pastorius

    theres a few

    I'd recommend Scar Tissue by the chilis, look out for a tab with the bass solo in (it's more just an interlude, but it adds a lot to the song
