Anyone else have a hard time listening to songs after you've learned to play them? For me, I tend to listen to them a lot less. I mainly listen to it only when I play along. Epic riffs and solos seem different to me after I've learned how to play them. Anyone else feel this way?

Complete opposite for me. I tend to like a song even more after learning it all.

This.

I never really appreciated the pre-chorus bit from 'One' until I saw what both the guitars were doing.

I don't have a hard time listening to the song, but I think I know what you mean by "seeing" a song differently after you've learned it. By then, you've kind of "deconstructed" the song in a mental and physical way, so I think it makes sense that you would feel a difference.

Sometimes I'll get sick of it while learning it just because I've heard it so many times while practicing it, but once I get it down I usually like it even more.

pretty much this and what other buddy said about deconstructing songs, i always end up viewing them differently but its in a way that i can enjoy the song more

thats shitty for you man, i don't know what i'd do if learning my favourite songs means i wouldn't appreciate them any more

I stopped learning to play things because it often makes them lose their magic for me.

If anything, I appreciate a song more once I learn it. It's like, "That's fun to play and genious--I could never think of something like that."

To me, covering a song connects me to the real musicality behind its making.

And sometimes I wonder what the heck was going through someone's head writing it.

I have a far greater appreciation for any song once I've broken into the parts myself. Especially when it comes to singing. There is no better way to appreciate the uniqueness of someone's voice or the complexity of their performance until you try to sing their work yourself.

I guess appreciate was the wrong word. It's not that it loses any value, but it's like all I can think about while listening to it is how to play it and that bothers me.

Depends.

Not so much 'learning' - but I would never look up the music for a Sigur Ros album or something as it totally takes the magic out of it. Nor would I look up the exact lead part for Bonamassa's Sloe Gin.

However - when I saw what Luke was playing in Sequoia Throne. ****, I don't have enough appreciation.

This, for some stuff. It kind of loses the mystery once you know exactly what's going on. Part of what makes an awesome riff awesome to me sometimes is that I'll hear it for the first time and go "oh man that's cool, what the hell is going on there?" But once I learn it and know what's going on, while it's still an awesome riff, there's no longer that element of mystery to it, the inner workings are exposed kind of deal. I know I'm in the minority with that though. It doesn't always happen that way, just sometimes.

Oh em gee, sloe gin just came up on shuffle right after I read dis thread. I ain't even playin, dat's < .0001 percent chance right there.

I don't really have a problem listening to songs that I have learned in the past, but I tend to listen to them less for a while because I'm burnt out from the learning process as well as from knowing it so thoroughly.

I've never been one to listen to any one album or song a lot in a short time frame.
