I'm just wondering what your opinions are on what would be the hardest song in the world to play on the guitar. I know its a difficult thread, a list of top 10 would be cool. I'm looking for a challenging song to learn.
#2
probably some buckethead, jordan and nottingham lace just look impossible
Lady Gaga if you're out there, i don't care if you have a penis or not, i will marry you

hardest song would be relative to your playing strengths and weaknesses,
the hardest song i've learned (I don't learn a lot of shred/solo type stuff) would be White Walls by Between The Buried and Me,
sure some guys can shred faces off
but they throw in quick playing along with rather difficult timing,
add in the need to play 14 minutes straight and well
ouch.

I'm looking for something a little more virtuoso, and with alot of feeling.

~well I started out playing 8 years ago, punk rock, moved into rock, then started playing metal, then blues & jazz, and then moved onto play alot of shredding, and neo-classical stuff, I play a violin type guitar style. And I'm actually moving on to progress on the violin soon. I've played some of the harder songs by these noteable artists.

Rusty Cooley - dark matter/under the influence
Joe satriani - midnight / day at the beach
Michael Angelo Batio - prog / 2x again / no boundries / burn / the finish line
Yngwie Malmsteen - pretty much every song
Vinnie Moore - life force / the maze
Dream theater - Dance of eternity

Just some examples....

Yes yes, it is quite a peice. My quartet was required to play this for the entry into an obscure roman conservatory. Quite simple if you get the fingering. I wouldn't expect any of you to know.

"Remove cattle from stage"

"If you can't play this, why don't you call your Mommy"

"Shock therapy may be needed"

I'm starting to think this is a joke...
