What are you playing/learning? (on your instrument)

I know a lot of you are musicians on this forum, so I'm opening up this question to everybody: What songs are you learning on your instrument? Guitar, drums, bass, piano, violin- no holding back.

Everybody makes 'original' compositions, yadda yadda yadda. I'm interested in what songs people are learning themselves, whether to cover in their band, improve their technique or just have fun.

I'll kick it off:

Dismantle the Dictator - Revocation (guitar)

Man, now I really appreciate why metalsucks.com gave Dave Davidson #1 modern metal guitarist. That opening riff is extending my hands in ways I didn't know it could extend!

I just started playing bass in December so I'm still really new to it but right now I'm working on learning Judas Priest - Breaking The Law and Iron Maiden - The Final Frontier. I've only really got the intros to both songs down right now.

Stopped playing guitar a while ago. Just haven't had time. But gonna pick it up again and start learning some Rammstein songs. Shouldn't be hard.

Nice, Rammstein is always easy as hell to learn.

In the meantime, this tapping part of Dismantle the Dicator around 2:45 is KILLING me. Its just in this really weird position for the left hand, and it keeps coming out all muddled for me. I appreciate Dave's skill more and more with every riff I learn.

I'm a drummer. Other than making music with my band, on my own time I prefer to have fun and just jam to songs. Anything really, like today I played from Slayer to Lamb of God to As I Lay Dying.

I'm a drummer, and like masterguy49. I like to make original music with my bands.

But I'm also jamming Dream Theater with my bassist (who plays DT on guitar). We are working on The Root Of All Evil, Overture 1928, Panic Attack and Stream Of Consciousness.

Lately I've been learning to create my own ambient post-rock, but I've begun trying to learn to solo. It's really difficult for me despite five years of guitar (it's all been riffing, no solos whatsoever), and I think I'll have to get a teacher.

What I've been jamming to lately:

Into the Void - Black Sabbath
Funeralopolis - Electric Wizard
Everlong - Foo Fighters

I tried to learn (Sic) but I miserably failed.

I play guitar and for reason, I don't go through learning a full song, just parts of it. Most recent stuff I learned were War of the Gods and Hermod's Ride to Hel by Amon Amarth.
