I searched for it, but didnt find something like this, so:

Post here the song(s) you are practicing on at the moment.
Also rate the difficulty of the song /10 and say what makes the song hard/easy.
[EDIT] please do![/EDIT]

For example:

I'm practicing on:

D.N.R. by Testament. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ac4TtVdYJdk
Difficulty: 7.5/10
Hardest thing about this song: overall speed

Wasted years by Iron Maiden. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=u4_1r2icIP0
Difficulty: 6/10
Hardest thing: Solo is the only thing you actually need some practice on. But it's not THAT hard

The Wicker Man by Iron Maiden http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GyfIQ7s14wc
Difficulty: 7.5/10
Hardest thing: some really hard parts in the solo. The song itself is very easy.

Domination by Pantera http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DHl1oYvyXho&feature=PlayList&p=35B8DBA349592841&index=5
Difficulty: 9.5/10
Hardest thing: Solo is wicked hard

I try learning heaps of different songs nearly every day, but at the moment theres really none...

I learnt the solo for Nothing Else Matters a while ago..

Raining Blood I guess I'm trying to get right, and learning a few with Wah.

Edit: Oh yeh the rating, some parts on raining blood are about 3/10 I guess but then others are around 9 - 10 to my ability, lol.

I'm also trying The Trooper, but it's not like a try a bit every day, just whenever I'm bored.

for the love of god- steve vai (studio version)

i just started on this a few days ago, the first minute or two is actually not that difficult once you get all the slides under your fingers.

im not to the shredding part yet

ill probably work 24/7 on it once i find a backing track.


im also working on canon D, thats just my little rainy day project though.

Glasgow Kiss - John Petrucci

Oh yeah, I'd rate it maybe 8/10, for me at least. It's not too bad, but I get hung up on a couple parts.

It was the only task I would undertake...

I'm learning Napalm Death's "You Suffer", but I can't get it down. Difficulty is probably 11/10, which is impossible. I doubt anyone here could play it, because I can't.
#7
joe Satriani - Ice 9
9/10
I'm fine up until the first solo kicks in, admitidly it starts pretty early in the song . It just starts too fast for me at the moment and timing throws me way off. This will be one i'll be working on for a while to come.

Joe Satriani - If I could Fly
8/10
I love this song and never got it down that well in the past, i'm having another go and trying to get it as close as possible.

Various other Satriani tracks (Satch is the focus right now as you can tell). The reason is because i'm learning so much from his songs, why bother to go elsewhere just yet.

#12
Finished learning She-Wolf - Megadeth - 8/10 (the rhythm is a difficult one to get down perfectly, and the solo needs good stretched-out hands)

Working on Hangar 18 - 7/10 (again, Mustaine has insane rhythm that sounds good AND is complex. I'm working on the rhythm part in the solos, since I'm not that good a lead player yet)

I'm actually trying to learn about half of Megadeth's discography.
#13
Hangar 18 is a mad song, good luck with it ^

Afterlife by A7X.
Difficulty: 7/10
Hardest thing about this song: Sweep picking in the solo, nearly got it down though.
#14
Snow by Red Hot Chili's

The song in itself is easy as hell but the riff in the verses is just constant fast hammerons and pulloffs and they make my hands ache after a while.

9/10

This song is soooo hard to get clean! I can play most of the notes now, but I'm not totally sure that they are correct. It's a tough song for sure. I think I'm going to work on Technical difficulties next.

^ Was this supposed to be a joke? Isn't that song 1 second long? (Edit:I just looked it up, it's 1.316 seconds long)

Either way, right now I'm learning Bloodmeat by Protest the Hero. It's probably a 9 for my personal skill level. The hardest part is probably the tapping during the verses. Curse my clumsy hands!

Till We Ain't Strangers Anymore - Bon Jovi.
3/10
Very easy, the only reason it's not a 1/10 is there's one fast little run near the end that I'm having trouble figuring out.

Time - Kouichi Korenaga.
7/10
At first I found this nearly impossible but now I've cracked a few of the basic figures, I've got most of it down. There are still two fills that I'm totally lost on, and one chord at the very start I've not worked out yet. I really need to spend more time researching my chords. This is extra hard because there's three guitar tracks going on and it can be in a few points to work out which is the lead and so on, plus the tone is a little unusual and I'm currently very hung up on getting the tone right.
Yes, I know everything. No, I can't play worth a damn.

Master of Puppets - 9/10, I've been working on the solo related parts for a LONG time, lol.

Downfall - Children of Bodom - 8/10, the alternate picking can be tricky if your not a very experienced player.
