Inspired by @JoshFossgreen’s recent instructional video reminding us to learn songs or (at least) study elements of songs to expand our own vocabulary, I thought it could be helpful if we shared interesting songs to learn/study here. I am 100% sure that I personally don’t know a lot of songs out there that could both be instructional and fun to learn.
In order not to just dump a long list of songs all at once, I suggest to only occasionally post, when you are, in fact, starting to learn/study a particular song. Maybe you are a fast learner and it takes you only a day or two before picking up or new one; or, you need a week or two to wrap your head around a more tricky one…
Also, it is probably beneficial if there were tabs or sheet music along with the song, or - extra points - if you transcribed the bassline/melody yourself!
I’ll start off with this little gem offering plenty of rhythmic challenges (and, thus, might take me more than the time I can allot to it in one week):
