    Hi all the musicians out there!

    I was just wondering what songs you are into playing at the moment, on whatever instrument (please specify though).

    At the moment for me, it's guitar, and I'm playing these quite often:

    The Grateful Dead - Ripple
    Pink Floyd - Mother
    The Rolling Stones - Ruby Tuesday
    Bob Dylan - Mr. Tambourine Man

    post away, peace to y'all all!

    I'm playing an acoustic Guitar (brand name: lauren)
    ummm and I'm writing my own songs... most of them are dark and depressing.. but I'm going to write some happy/mystical ones as well.
    I'm also new at playing guitar so just practicing... making up my own chords and stuff... and now I just have to learn how to sing.. I've been practicing that too.. although, my singing voice isn't the greatest.

    I don't really play anything. I just jam to whatever I hear on tv or on internet radio... or random songs.
