I need a shred solo, moderate difficulty (moderate is easy for shredding i suppose since i've never really found an easy shred) cause I need it for some filler at my gig tonight...i was thinking a medley of Far Beyond the Sun and Canon Rock or just learning the intro to Cliffs of Dover followed by some scale runs.

any other suggestions?

the gig is a battle of the bands and two of my friends are hosting so they're having one of my friends run on stage and air guitar while I play from an amp backstage.

its not so much that i feel guilty about masturbating, its the things that i masturbate to that make me feel guilty.
Yep..Eruption is good. Tapping is one of the easier things you can do to look impressive. I did some fairly effortless two string tapping as an intro when I played with a band at a talent show in my college. I got a huge applause. Even though we went on playing a simple corny love song
I'd just improvise one. If you want it to be easy, use an A Pentatonic and when it gets old, shift up an octave. You can easily go on for a few minutes doing this.

can you not improv one?

well i mean it goes without saying i'm going to improv but i always like to throw in a phrase or lick or something from some shreds and some of the people in the audience would get it. It's like an inside joke with music...

Far Beyond the Sun would be my first choice. Honestly though You should look into a little bit of something from Megadeth not the biggest fan but they have somewhat decent shred sections. Like I said, the Far Beyond the sun solo is easy to go for several minutes on, and it fits well into scarified since they are the same key, although I don't know if the tunings are the same, i think both are in Eb standard.
