i don't know many guitarists in real life and i was just wondering

how many full songs have you memorised on guitar?
#3
I've been through various cover bands. I have no idea how many songs I've learnt/memorised over that time. Probably around 1000. Out of the bands I currently play with, I probably play around 200 songs on a regular basis.
And no, Guitar Hero will not help. Even on expert. Really.

A lot. You can forget some stuff after a while but it sometimes randomly comes back because you play something unconsciously similar and remember it.

I think every song I have learned I can remember. Sometimes takes reading the first part over to jog my memory but once I have done that I can play it perfectly again. Muscle memory for the win!

I've learned hundreds of songs, probably could remember about 30 now. With a little assistance (looking over the chords/tabs real quick, etc) that number would be significantly higher though.

Over 9000!
I'm an idiot and I accidentally clicked the "Remove all subscriptions" button. If it seems like I'm ignoring you, I'm not, I'm just no longer subscribed to the thread. If you quote me or do the @user thing at me, hopefully it'll notify me through my notifications and I'll get back to you.

I'll have to put the Classic T models on my to-try list. Shame the finish options there are Anachronism Gold, Nuclear Waste and Aged Clown, because in principle the plaintop is right up my alley.

No idea, I'm sure I've learned over 1000 over the last 15 years but could probably play about 30-40 from start to end without having to think about it, if we're talking the entire song start to finish.

For some reason I was given the ability to memorize song lyrics but I can't sing well at all and yet I can't remember certain parts to songs I've played on guitar hundreds of times. Go figure. My best friend has the opposite, he can sing but can't remember the lyrics and sucks at guitar but can remember every piece to every song he plays.

I can't remember!
#16
40-50 from start to finish, with the lyrics and bridge and intros etc. Probably could skip the bridge and mumble through a bunch more
#19
Hundreds. I could probably play 75 songs like right now.

tunes man

my dinner music shit's all memory

jam sessions someone'll call a tune that I didnt realize I remember from time to time
#21
I can only think of 6 songs I can really say I can play all the way through right now. I'll list them in the order I finally memorized them all in:

Saria's Song (LoZ OoT)
Legend of Zelda Theme (NES version)
Gerudo Valley (LoZ OoT)
I Am Legend/Out For Blood (Arch Enemy)
Hot Virgin Gash for Supper (me)
Intermezzo Liberte (Arch Enemy)

I can do quite a bit of other stuff too though. Also, I actually know all the parts in the LoZ theme because I made a horribly produced cover of it about a year ago.

Chord tabs i've learned hundreds of
Full tabs probably in the hundreds aswell
But like mostly everyone, I couldn't play them all off the top of my head.
I know tons of riffs though...

Just a guess,

I probably have learned 500 songs in my life as a bar band guitar/bass player. Probably another 1000 as a fan of music.

Out of that 1500, I can usually recall 100/200 off the top of my head.

I enjoy playing covers with my friends.

I also really like just picking a key and jamming the blues for hours on end.
