Hello everyone, what I mean by free pass is if you could know 1 song perfectly without having to learn anything or practice it what song would you choose?

In a world where magic happens - John King's Bach Prelude arrangement. I'm not sure I've got enough years left on this planet to master it!

+1 on any of John King's arrangements, all are so beautiful.

The Pure Heart version isn't all that difficult to learn. Now.....playing it beautifully is way harder.

My answer today would be Hawaiian Soul. Holy moley it is a gorgeous song. Or maybe Europa...if I could do it half as well as Aldrine.

I will do it at some point. Right now I am learning it without using tabs. It's killing me. But, really it isn't that hard to memorize. It's the first time I had to learn a song without tabs -- I promised I would.

Yes,yes. I understand I know who your teacher is. :D Guess I can keep pausing videos. If you or anyone has a set of tabs I would still love some.

I'd rather have a curse that forced me to practice until I could play a song like John King does and then have me choose another...

bach cello suite 1 for me as well...I've often daydreamed about learning to play cello just to play that piece of music...and I'm not even that big a classical fan. I just really love that piece.

Iz's Over the Rainbow/Wonderful World medley...with vocals. It might seem like a low goal compared with some of the instrumentals listed here, but, It's a long complicated song to me, someone who can't play much of anything by memory.

Assuming that the free pass also includes vocals, then I guess I wish I could do a really top notch Ave Maria and a jazzy version of Billy Joel's New York State of Mind .

I would definitely go for some clawhammer. Perhaps

or

something that this guy plays

Though it would also be great to be able to tear through just one formby song.

Jake Shimabukuros Ukulele weeps,or Sungha Jungs I'm Yours. Maybe i should have picked something harder but i would love to know those

I promised myself I would learn Jake's "Gently Weeps" from his iPhone app lesson on my soon to arrive steel string arch-top electric uke. Sure would be nice if when it arrives, I could just pick it up and play that song, but alas, I must woodshed.

I like the style that is added, wish I had that!


Tomorrow, it may be something different

In a world of waving magic wands, I'd like to be able to do this song like Jim does it here:

or maybe this one, since it's on my mind these days:

and then, as someone else said, there's that claw-hammer thing...
