Hi guys, I need some help to find a easy solo/solos to learn. Preferably Metal solos, but also some blues, like Jimi Hendrix stuff. I'm pretty good at two handed finger tapping and tremolo picking, if that's for any help.

Solos I already can play:

Nothing Else Matters
Fade To Black (Intro solo and Middle solo)
Welcome Home (Sanitarium) (Intro solo)
For Whom The Bell Tolls
One (Intro solo and Middle solo)
Am I Evil? (Intro solo)
The Day That Never Comes (Intro solo)

Not to be a prick, but this should really be moved to another forum. But to help, I'd probably say Master of Puppets based on your list.

Curse of Castle Dragon by Paul Gilbert is simple.

Also anything by Protest The Hero, Steve Vai, Joe Satriani or Dream Theater

I think he wants something a little easier than that unless your talking about the solo in the interlude. I cant think of any easy solos right now, but ill let you know when i think of some.

Bad Religion has a lot of cool solos that are pretty easy but pretty fun to play, especially Modern Man and Sorrow

He should learn it anyway, that song really gets your rhythm chops up there.

And I'd say go find a new genre to try, if you only stick to metal you're not going to be a versatile player at all. Try taking a look at some Pat Metheney or some John Scofield. Take one piece from either, analyze it, and learn to play it bit by bit. Trust me, it'll up your playing immensely, and you'll look at the guitar from a totally new angle.

Ember To Inferno-Trivium
Come Clarity-In Flames
Right Side Of The Bed-Atreyu

I learned how to play these when my speed sucked. They're nice and easy, but still pretty fun to play.
Some people just wanna watch the world burn. Wanna join me when I take my turn to pour the gas, light the match, see your world flip upside down and drop until it's inside out?

Both of these are good suggestions, two of the first solos I learned. I'd also recommend Another Brick In The Wall (Part 2) and Livin' Lovin' Maid.

LLM is barely a solo, it's like 3 bends repeated twice.

Just find a song you like and break it down. Try playing at half speed or so until you get the hang of it. For more of a blues sound try messing around with the blues pentatonic. It is surprisingly simple and applicable once you learn it!
