Like title says, what songs have you learned that you thought were easy but ended up being hard as ****?

I'm learning John Frusciante's cover of "How Deep Is Your Love" and man, I thought it'd be a couple of chords, but shit...this is hard. X_X

I've barely gotten past the 1st verse and I've been at it for some time now...


How aboot you guys, eh?

Queen basslines can be pretty easy sounding but hard to play. The Show Must Go On is borderline stupid to play, but sounds easy.

Master of Puppets. I figured it was just power chords and open Low E chugging, which it is. But the solo is kicking my ass.

"Mother Puncher" and "Crusher Destroyer" are good simpler Mastodon songs.

I love almost any song off Remission on guitar.


I loves dems. My problem is the solo: whenever I start to play, my fingers turn to mush and won't cooperate. Assholes.

Almost anything by Billy Talent sounds pretty basic, but the chords and picking are a total bitch and a half.

This. Well actually I can't play any solos except slower more melodic solos, which no one repects me for

Indeed. I just thought it was simple 4/4 riffing with a small break for a ragtime solo

I wouldn't say hard technically, but I would just say remembering the changes are the difficult part. I always forget, too

MGMT - Metanoia

I thought "Pah, 'tis only a bunch of chords! How hard could it be?"

Hard as balls to remember all those key changes and such.

And you can't find any tabs for the damn slide solo/bridge thing.

MotFA is probably my favorite song on that album, definitely fun to play. Especially the breakdowns.

I only know a couple from Remission. Blood Mountain has my favorites to play on guitar.

Yeah, man. "Bladecatcher" is their best song to play on guitar for me. It's true, thought, there are a lot of good ones on BM.

I started learning it 2 weeks ago, I might get back into it this week. That one's a bitch to play.

I have UG Black Style and I can barely read my signature.

Also, I like black.

When I first started guitar I was playing Guitar Hero at the same time. (I wasn't so conceited that I thought I was better at guitar cause I played on hard or expert or anything) But seeing the songs in such a simplified format made me think the songs were much easier than they actually were. (Not entirely a bad thing either, cuz it made my goals seem more attainable) But I attempted Cliffs of Dover much earlier than I should've XD

Learning to Live - Dream Theater. I have most of it down, but the bass at the Wait For Sleep bit is a lot harder than the rest of the song.
If you do things right, people won't be sure you've done anything at all...
