Tried to learn QOTSA No-one Knows yesterday, but my strum was really off and I just couldn't get the rhythm. So I brushed up on some Lamb Of God instead. The fingers remembered, but the head had forgotten. Once I pulled up the tab, it came back pretty readily. :)

Try and sing No One Knows while you play it... Pretty hard so I soon gave up on it

Started trying to learn Hot For Teacher. Already struggling with the 3rd- 7th fret stretch in the opening tapping riff! Need to do some stretching exercises me thinks.

That wonky timing tapped part at the end of the intro always gets me, the one that's also played as a lead in to the solo.

Julie London's Cry Me A River. The intro sounds so simple but is an absolute nightmare.
