Drums: I'm not certain, but one of the earliest I remember learning was When the Levee Breaks, by Led Zeppelin


I feel like i was born with that track pre-learned.  So primal.

Guitar:  Man I feel like I learned mostly pieces of songs for a long time.  Excluding solos, I'm pretty sure it was Black Sabbath, Black Sabbath and a bunch of Green Day/Nirvana.  When I Come Around and Smells Like Teen Spirit jump out as songs I learned the whole way through early.  Trumpet and piano...I assume Hot Cross Buns or something like that.

My brother is like that. Drums, guitar, bass, keys...I remember it myself when he started on all but the drums, and he would just mess around for an hour or two, never having touched the instrument before- and pretty much have the rudiments down, in that amount of time. Made me sick with jealousy!

Rush songs ... tried to learn the R30 Overture first but only got about 2 minutes in and lost it on the arpeggios. So I learned Temples of Syrinx and that was the first song I could finish all 128 seconds.

I liked to play lots of intros at first and tended to lose interest after that.

I like short rockin songs like Hello There and Paranoid to wail on.

Hey Joe and Sweet Jane are two I like to jam to.

My turntable is my instrument. Do not need anything else

And you can't even play that right seeing you couldn't even change the stylus. I guess that's what happens when you buy junk.

Yeah, but your instrument is a skin flute. :)
