Hello all, been playing for around 2 years now and i've hit the wall and can't seem to find a song to motivate myself to learn so i can improve, i would say im average at speed, being able to cover a7x afterlife being my best achievement so far. I have an obsession with accuracy so i usually get wound up if i cant play something clearly at the first attempt.
However if any of you have good songs from bands I may not have heard of in my little cave i've been living in i would appreciate it greatly.
I like stuff like megadeth but i think at 2 years it's pushing it to try and learn a solo from them.
Thanks!

Do you want to learn cool riffs, lead lines, solos to expand your vocabulary or do you want something that will challenge you technically?

learn fly by night by rush, it r cool, not really metal, but its a good song to learn. I take it by songs outside of your little cave, you mean not metal. If so, try some hendrix stuff, its pretty hard to get, but at 2 years you should be able to tackle it.

But whatever you do stop listening/playing Avenged Sevenfold before learning any of these other songs. I'm sure it would not be in your best interest to insult Gilbert, Mustaine, or Skolnick.

How come?
Dyer's Eve is awesome, and has an abnormally large penis, which doesn't act as any hinderance to his everyday life despite its freakishly large size.

Scarified

Technical Difficulties

Viking Kong

Or some good ol' Testament or Megadeth.

Nah it's not that difficult of a song. Very pattern oriented and if you're familiar with the major/minor scales it won't be hard at all.
Cacophony/Jason Becker/Yngwie stuff is much harder cause it's just straight up shred.
and Jeff Loomis/Rusty Cooley/Rob Marcello stuff is just like the ultimatum.

^I'd say Becker's stuff is right up there with Cooleys, and more challenging than Loomis, although they are all great players.
