hey
I've been playing electric guitar for a while now. When I first started I played cover, mainly main riffs and solos of songs, not really covering the whole song. I jumped straight into playing originals after a small time of playing covers.

I have recently learnt Dee by Randy Rhoads which really gave me a challenge and i really enjoyed learning it as it has expanded my technique. So I want to learn more covers which give me a challenge and expand my technique further. I want to learn a song from each of my major influences. Please recommend a song which really showcases quite a lot of techniques for each of my influences. My influences inlcude;

- Eddie Van Halen
- Randy Rhoads
- Ace Frehley
- Glen Tipton
- Slash
- Ritchie Blackmore
- Tony Iommi
- Pete Townshend
- Joe Perry
- Jimmy Page

I want to learn a song in it's full for each of the guitarists. So please recommend a song for each.
Thanks

Rhoads-Mr. Crowley (live version from Tribute)
Slash (kinda of my idol)-Estranged, November Rain, Coma, Nightrain (do Nightrain) or a live solo from Tokyo
EVH:Really alot of his stuff can be difficult Eruption really is a showcase tune though
Tony Iommi-Faries Wear Boots/Jack the Stripper
Joe Perry-Eat the Rich
Page-Black dog (especially the solo)
Ace-not a chance in hell

Plus, naturally I scream satanic rituals while unleashing the demon. It's a marvelous resurrection.

Blackmore-Highway star. (not sure if many of his solos are technical)
Tipton-Painkiller, but I warn you it's very technical (sweeps)
Townshend-great songwriter and player but I can't think of a technical solo, he was very humble in terms of his ability
Ace-Seriousley? Its Kiss there is no musicality about it. Detroit Rock City, Shock Me,
Let Me Go Rock N' Roll, Rock Bottom. Its about as technical as it gets.

Yerr thanks
I really like Ace even thoguh he isn't that musical. I found a solo which is quite good by Ace, "Strange Ways" is quite a good solo, so I might learn that.
