So as the title states, i mainly play metal (thrash) but not wanting to hinder myself and take my playing further and to have a little more creativity i would like to learn some jazz and blues. So does anyone have boy suggestions on songs i could learn to get started.

Anything helpful would be greatly appreciated.

This is really hard to answer but you can never go wrong with Wes Montgomery and Stevie Ray Vaughan.

why does everyone like metal so much... Anyway, if you don't know the twelve bar blues obviously you should learn that. Learn to play in different keys. Learn to play solos in different keys and use the right notes and bends. Listen to blues players like freddie king, albert king, stevie ray, you know, whichever ones you can find. Learn some of their licks that you like and use it in your solos, rthym, etc. Oh and be able to play the right notes during the right chords like not use the major 3rd on the 4 chord.

What if you could learn both some jazz and blues based things from a hard rock/metal band?... well you can!, learn every Black Sabbath song.
1971 - was the f***ing year
Bobby Liebling is the man!

That would be blues not jazz.

WHy not just learn some Opeth?

I'd say that's a pretty good suggestion.
Maybe Mars Volta as well, or Oysterhead.
