The Hardest Song You've Ever Learned

The title pretty much sums it up. What's the hardest song that you've learned, or are trying to learn. So far, I think (Anesthesia) Pulling Teeth has been the most difficult for me so far.

It's hard to say. I considered Holy Wars to be hard for a long time but I've gotten very good at it. Same with Number of the Beast.

Probably Resistance. I used the intro/verse to work on my picking speed, and then thought of the sweet pre-chorus part as a reward for learning that.... then I got to the bridge. It's the pre-chorus part, but tremelo picked at the speed of the verse.... it's not possible.

Probably "Dancing Mad" from Final Fantasy VI. I especially struggled with part 4. I still hate it to this day

Sequoia Throne. It's hard on every instrument, so I felt accomplished when I got it on bass and guitar

Deep Purple's Highway Star was hard for me in the beginning then I realized Roger Glover played with a pick.

Highway Star is great to play but theres so many different ways of playing it.

Any slap bass song for me, just no skill with my fingers :L.

Lol, I made the same mistake. We play a couple of Deep Purple songs in our band and fingerstyle just killed me.

Hardest song? hmm. Has to be Bernadette by the Four Tops. Getting those arpeggiated runs up to tempo locked in killed me. On upright--Tricotism, though comping to Stella by Starlight still screws with my mind sometimes.
