I'm looking for a new song to learn! My interests are older metal, rock, blues, and a little jazz.

The songs I have learned in the past few months include

Ain't talkin bout love - Van Halen (Rhythm no solo)
One - Metallica (Rhythm and intro solo)
Welcome home - Coheed and Cambria (no solos)
All along the watch tower - Jimi Hendrix
Shelter me - Tab Benoit
The Trooper - Iron Maiden (no solo yet)
Stranglehold - Ted Nugent
What it's like - Everlast
Everlong - Foo Fighters
My Generation - The Who
Funk #49 - The James Gang

Then some jazz standards as well. Just seeing if anyone has any suggestions. I have been really focusing on trying to improve my rhythm lately, especially starting riffs on downbeats and doing 16th note runs and things like that. I'm not really interested in newer metal or hardcore, I am a fan of older metal and new wave british stuff though. Thanks yall!

To post we need to know:
* Your skill level, as in how long you've been playing.
* The criteria of the song. (For example, what genre? what modal progression? what time signature? so on)
* Other genres/songs you usually play.

And as for some general rules:
1. Dont suggest indie songs no-one has ever heard of
2. Dont suggest songs that are too hard to find. Keep in mind most people are going to want tabs.
3. Dont suggest songs you wrote yourself
4. Dont flame, only constructive posts are welcome
5. Please dont spam
6. Suggest a song that is adequate to the persons skill level. Dont suggest pagini's 25 caprices to a person just starting to shred
7. It would be nice if you explained how/why the song you suggested uses what the asker has asked for
8. Dont chew the noobs
9. Dont post vague requests with completely subjective answers.

I'll edit more rules in as we go along.

OTHER WHAT SONG THREADS:

http://www.ultimate-guitar.com/foru...ad.php?t=636381 -Electric
http://www.ultimate-guitar.com/foru...ad.php?t=540804 -Bass
If you want a beginner song, please click one of those links.

I'll start of
I'd like a song that uses a modal phrygian progression. I've been playing for 3 years, and I know an adequate amount of theory. I mostly play jazz and metal


thank you for this topic

Metallica - Fade to black has some nice acoustic AND metal guitar parts.
Also Judas Priest - the Hellion is pretty awesome.
Purple Haze is great too and there's a lot of tabulature versions here for pretty much every guitar level.
Aces High by Iron Maiden has a pretty fast and sounds impressive while being quite easy once you look into it.
And for the jazz I could recommend you Blue Bossa, Girl from Ipanema and Satin Doll - all pretty well known jazz standarts and you can create alot from them, improvise, whatever.
Good luck!

Anyone can recommend some thrash metal songs that would have real strong power chords and riffs (not too fast) - maybe something by Slayer, Metallica or Motorhead. Songs with screaming vocals are a no-go . Also something that would be available of gp format.
Recent songs
South of heaven, Seasons of the Abyss, first part of Raining blood by Slayer.
One, Nothing else matters by Metallica.
Purple Haze by Jimi Hendrix.
Cocaine by Eric Clapton.
Flying whales by Gojira.

Thanks

I know this might sound weird but I can play three Meshuggah songs ("Acid Placidity", "Entrapment", and "New Millennium Cyanide Christ") but not a few songs people consider easy ("Smells like Teen Spirit", "hotel California", and the intro to "Stairway to Heaven"). I can't tap (nor do I care about it) but am otherwise great with legato. My question is what should I do and what songs can I use to challenge myself that are actually difficult and impressive. I'm open to all genres except classical (I don't know how to play that stuff).

Also I don't think "Dance of Eternity" (Dream Theater) will do it (a good portion of it is just power chords and the rest is insane along with it being 6 minutes long).

Super Buu (DBZ) on assimilation (it could also apply to blues guitar and guitar soloing in general).

I need some songs that begginer/ish band can play. My brother is on bass, he can play simple bass riffs. My dad can play nearly anything on drums. I have been playing guitar for over a year, Can play some intermediate stuff but fall short in solos and speed. So far we have played Back In Black, Smells like Teen Spirit, and Louie Louie. I want some songs that are fairly easy to learn and we can fun with. Anything other than Metal.

I would suggest getting a songbook. There are many great compilations out there, and you'll be able to sit down, leaf through a big selection and be exposed to new music you've never heard before.

Sorry I created a new thread without realizing that there was this thread for song suggestions. I can play Sabbath and Deep Purple rhythm parts but I wanna improve my lead guitar playing at the same time and to do that I need suggestions on rock music with easy solos. Please Help.

*Edit* I have not attempted playing solos yet. I have been playing for an year.

Start playing solos. Try the start of Wish You Were Here. It's nice and easy.

But then anything can be easy if you have patience and practice properly. Solos are often intimidating but just get in there and do it. Best thing is to find a solo you know well and have heard often and learn it slowly note for note until your fingers know where they are going and then work on cleaning it up and speeding it up till it sounds right. Sometimes you will find yourself practicing the same phrase fifteen or twenty times in a row.

I've been playing about a year, and I'm into pretty much anything from classic rock to thrash. I really like iron maiden and metallica. I have no idea what I want to learn. Suggestions?
