So im looking to expand my song library that i can play, and therefor, increase my speed.

I want to go through an entire bands catalouge and learn every song for the lead guitar chronologically.

Bands I love are... C.o.B, AC/DC, GNR, Motley Crue, Alice Cooper, And such.
What is a good place to start.

And for those who say "Play scales, its better". I am playing scales, I have an hour and 20 minute class period where most of that time i play scales. (mostly the major scale and pentatonics, sometimes even the pentacostals) So I want something to suppliment that.

What can you play already?
but out of those id recommend AC/DC as they have pretty average playing ability stuff but with some tricky solos and some nice chords.

Screaming for Vengeance - Judas Priest would be pretty sick but I wouldn't know if you were up to it or not.

I can play sweet child of mine minus the huge solo, Crazy train minus the solo, Some Rolling Stones, Mr.Brownstone, Random "everyone knows" riffs like enter sandman.
I know open chords, bar chords, power chords, and triads.

lol then keep away from the Priest.

I wouldn't think that the Highway to Hell album by ACDC is too bad, but it's been a while since i listened. Check it out

If you like C.o.B try Between the Buried and Me, As Blood Runs Black and Protest the Hero
great stuff to learn, complex, but it will give you something new to play for sure

I recommend Limb From Limb by Protest the Hero to just start with some advanced picking (economy/sweeping)

I guess I'm kind of like a hippie. I'm anti-war, do drugs, and like communism.
Your not a hippie, just a ****ing moron.
