There are several approaches to learning the latest hit songs. The first, my favorite, is to lift the tune by ear. I enjoy the challenge of this approach, even though I might not get it all right in one try. I think it helps me get a grasp on the structure of a song.
Another way to go is to have your teacher help you work it out, taking advantage of their “Lifting” skills and experience.
Lastly, you can always get a music book with everything all worked out for you! You can even use such a book to make a few corrections if you have attempted the first two approaches.
You get the music in both standard notation and Tab’s for 12 of the hottest commercial hits of 2013.
Here is the list:
Blurred Lines Robin Thicke
Daylight Maroon 5
Get Lucky Daft Punk featuring Pharrell Williams
The Hangman’s Body Count Volbeat
Just Give Me A Reason Pink featuring Nate Ruess
Locked out of Heaven Bruno Mars
Next To Me Emile Sande
Panic Station Muse
Radioactive Imagine Dragons
Still into You Paramore
Suit & Tie Justin Timberlake
We Are Young Fun featuring Janelle Monae
The only thing I would have liked would have been a CD to go with this music, but as they are popular tunes you can get the ones you like easily enough on your own.
If you are adding some 2013 hits to your set list, this might be the book for you.
