How many songs can I actually play?

Time and time again, folks ask how many songs I know how to play. This can be a tough answer to pinpoint, because how does one define knowing a song? Is it just being able to sing it? Or play it on guitar? Or recognize it if it's on the radio? Folks who have heard me play have told me I know "hundreds, even thousands of songs." I have always thrown out the number 600. I bet I can play for you 600 songs off the top of my head. As of today, I have figured out that I can play 484 different cover songs. Now that doesn't include originals, Irish traditionals or children's songs. With all this in mind, I have made a goal to get my number up to 1000. At least before my brain explodes. Stay tuned, I'll keep you posted...
