I play basic piano, but I stopped the lessons a few years ago. Every so often I find a song on internet and attempt to play it on the piano. 

 

I have recently started doing guitar, not lessons or anything, mainly just YouTube... Right now, I am trying to master "Love Me Do" apparently it is really easy, well not for me ahdn_paul_01 I only started doing guitar because of The Beatles, I really wanted to be able to play their songs on guitar... I'll still need a lot of practice for that!

As I've mentioned, I got both a guitar and bass within one week. I've picked both up very well (although I'm quite slow at chord-changing), and I've learnt a few songs on both. I know others, but I've memorised these:

When I got my first guitar I played my way through Beatles For Sale. Thats kinda how I learned, going through all of my favorite albums at a time. Now I'm onto a rather ambitious project, namely, playing my through all the Live At The BBC material.

I play guitar bass and piano. I mainly do most of Paul McCartney's stuff, such as his baselines, guitar pieces, piano parts, but I do want to try his drum parts. I never really learned that much about drums, but I do get the concepts of it. 

Favorite basslines:

Silly Love Songs

Hey Bulldog

I Saw Her Standing There

Taxman

Come Together

Band On The Run

Favorite guitar songs:

Helter Skelter

Blackbird

Two of Us

Yesterday

Paperback Writer

Favorite Piano:

Live And Let Die

Maybe I'm Amazed

Let it Be 

Hey Jude

I hav e alot more songs for each one. Just my favorite songs.

If children are studying the 20th century, I'm in their text books.

I play a little piano, but mostly I have devoted myself to acoustic guitar.  I would die for being able to play the piano of "Lady Madonna".

Way back many moons ago, in the mists of time B.P.C. (Before the Personal Computer, when Mankind was stumbling around actually going to the library, reading real books, and trying to find phone booths to make calls outside the house), my mom bought me an acoustic guitar and I began learning slowly.  All I did was riff on single strings (one song I particularly liked to do this on was "Polk Street Carnival" by Mandrill).  I remember clearly the day I bought my first songbooks -- to Ram and to Red Rose Speedway -- and, with a few chords under my belt, felt the joy of actually strumming along to some of the songs there.

Yeah, I have tried playing Lady Madonna on piano, but I just do not have that skill yet. It is the the only song that gets me.
