I'll do this with the Sweet Child of Mine solo. I know the full solo, but need to get less sloppier with it.

So does this only apply to songs that use techniques you already have clean, albeit at a lower tempo than needed?

I was thinking about doing this with the Arpeggio Section of Altitudes but I still need to work on better muting with both hands, e.g., when starting a two string roll with the ring finger the string before it buzzes as if a harmonic rather than quieting down...

EDIT: Doing this with Scarified and Altitudes.

It applies to almost anything. If you're just looking to increase your speed, you could try the chromatic scale, or you could try a song you can play kind of sloppy, or even a song that you randomly found on YouTube.

Sounds interesting. So what would be a moderately challenging solo, devode of finger tapping in a standard tuning?

Do guys think Snow from RHCP would work? and i would probably have to learn to play it right which I'm not sure what kind of picking i should use. Or i could try just some scale or arpeggio

Wow, that song's real fast. If you feel like trying it, though, I say: "Go for it!" Are you in?

I played the main riff from the Cowboys from Hell for like 30 minutes today, pretty slowly. Easy and (hopefully) effective.

Also updated the list.

I'm in! Practicing my tapping in 'Silverstein - Smile in Your Sleep'. Played for about an hour or so, and my right middle finger hurts like a mofo.

There's no point doing this for an exercise like chromatics - the whole point of this method is for learning a piece of music. Ideally it should be a whole song, but at the very least a solo.

There's absolutely nothing to be gained from spending 21 days working on the 1234 exercise, if you're going to spend 21 days grinding something you at least want to have achieved something by the end of it.
