ok guys, this is a question that pops up quite often, but im lookin for a medium solo to learn(like on a scale of 1-10, around 5 or 6 :P ),
that would certainly make people say im quite ok at guitar playing,
but ugh, everywhere i look on this forum people suggest songs of Metallica or AC/DC....sorry guys but they just aren't my favourite bands.

solo played in normal tuning or 1step down, any style of music.

Thanks for taking your time for me

perhaps if you told us your favourite bands then we could make relevant suggestions?

Well..
The solo from "Killer Queen" by Queen isn't too bad, and sounds impressive if you can get the tone down.
If you like any metal or anything, Iron Maiden's solo in "Aces High" isn't too hard... well. Its decent.
Although i'm not sure why you'd just play a "solo" to show skills.. anytime I bust out Crazy Train, people seem to think i'm at least decent at guitar.

This is a clever, witty signature. Rofl at my glory.

Because i cover songs like 'cold ways' from Katatonia, problem is people first of all don't like it + i hate people saying i dont got enough skills just cuz these songs aren't really hard to play....

So i decided to learn a solo to get rid of these retarded people. But just cant figure out which one i should deffinitly learn, but ima give killer queen a listen

Nice...
Well, you could just learn your pentonic scales, and improv... they're easy, trust me.
Otherwise..
There's always "Stairway to Heaven"'s solo too.

So you're trying to decide which single solo you are going to learn?

You could also just learn LOTS of solos and then pick whichever one suits your audience
