Ive been playing guitar for 2 years now, with no particular goal, just fooled around and learned whatever my teacher taught me. But, after realizing that I should be playing much better than I do for the time I have been playing, I have decided to set some goals, which will be fun for me, and help me. Its actually quite straightforward, by 2010, I should be able to play 60 intermidiate solos. What do you think of this as goal? I was thinking of songs along the Classic Rock/Hard Rock/Metal songs. The hardest thing I can play (and also solo 1 for my goal) is Stairway To Heaven (the solo). What would be some good songs? At this point, i dont have an interest in learning sweep and/or advanced metal techniques, jsut basic legato, intermediate-advanced alt. picking, and standard techniques.

BTW, I do realize that this should kinda be in MTs Suggest a Song, but I thought it deserved its own thread.

Thank you very much

I heard there is uranium gas in the tubes. So you could easily make a little nuclear blast. If i were you, i wouldn't want to start the World War III.

I think 60 is too many. There are only 20 or 22 weeks left in 2009. So you'd have to learn 3 a week or so. Better to learn fewer, but learn them really well.

Yeah, this.


Try Iron Man(Black Sabbath), Stairway to Heaven ( Led Zeppelin), Sweet Child O Mine ( Guns 'n Roses). That should get you started.

If you can play those solos at 100% speed, perfectly( good amount of vibrato and muting etc. ), you should've pretty much reached your goal.

TC Electronics Dark Matter distortion
Harley Benton 2x12, with Celestion V30s

meh... i dont find learning solos and playing them exact is brilliant, i would learn the whole song and then solo the way i please. of course i pick up some solo licks from the song, so im using those but still playing the way i want.

btw... your learning off tab right? id advise learning by ear as a goal.
