I'm not entirley sure if this has been asked before but I'm curious.

What's the first song/solo you learned to play on guitar or bass?

The first song I learned to play was Come As You Are By Nirvana, and the first solo I learnt was the Smells Like Teen Spirit Solo haha

First song I learnt on bass was Come Together by The Beatles (Not By Choice, had to stand in as a bassist for a local band to play that song for a one off gig)

Haha, quite funny that we both learnt the same things when we first started. I've completley forgot them both now and don't intend to re-learn them as I dont like Nirvana anymore.

I can play the main riff of both songs, but that's about it. Wouldn't take long to relearn though, but I don't intend to either.
