learn Deep Purple solos

Highway Star is a good one to start with

edit: early Judas Priest solos are pretty good too, songs like Tyrant, Starbreaker, and Raw Deal

the eagles (not just hotel california) have tons of hooks, solos, and and outros that sound fabulous. Same case with the allman brothers.
Dire straits have some good stuff, so does jj cale. Neil young, cortez the killer is chock-full of badass solos

I recently had a dream that my dad died and my mum spent the life insurance payout on a new Indian dad, who told me to convert to Judaism, even though people usually change religion in September.

How could you learn every Zeppelin song EXCLUDING Heartbreaker? That's the most one...unless it's just too difficult...

Or Dear Mr. Fantasy by Traffic.

While My Guitar Gently Weeps by The Beatles (Clapton).

"Comfortably Numb", "Time" - Pink Floyd

You are telling me you have learned EVERY SINGLE zeppelin solo, apart from Heartbreaker?

Either you are fibbing, or you really have no life.

Anything Ritchie blackmore, or Dave Gilmour or Tony Iommi.

For blackmore, try machine head, Rainbow rising, or long live rock n'roll
For gilmour, look up Animals.
For Iommi, check Out heaven and hell, and Mob Rules.

If you think page is good, prepare to cry.

Well, there's a ton of stuff to choose from.

Personally, some of my favorite solos are Pearl Jam. Like, Alive or Go. Oh, Yellow Ledbetter.

There's also some stuff that's just plain magnificent, like Highway Star by Deep Purple or Comfortably Numb by Pink Floyd. Sultans of Swing, Dire Straits. Hot For Teacher, Van Halen.

Learn some Steely Dan solos, like Bodhisattva or Reelin' In The Years, and even just learning the changes to the jazzier Steely Dan will improve your playing a lot.

But if you really want to expand your soloing repertoire, you must listen to jazz and you must play solos that were not originally played on a guitar.
