is there a song that can be played without the drums and vocals just guitar and sound good,
without it sounding like your just repeating stuff?
#6
Try Suicide and Solution by Metallica. Fun song to play, and the third solo can be done with some work.
#7
Second solo to Fade to Black. It's not that hard and I learned it right after the first one. it's mostly pentatonic with some fast passages thrown in.

He means Suicide and Redemption and he's right. It's fun to play and not hard.
Chinese Democracy is a great album, people need to get over Slash.

I'm sorry, there is no one who repeats him/herself more than a guitar player. Here's a triangle.

Music isn't the Olympics. It's not about showing other people what you can do with a piece of wood in your hands that has strings on, it's about making sounds that are good.

You pretty much need a rhythm(spelling?) section to sound good soloing. That's one of the main points of drums, bass and rhythm guitar in the first place.

Why do you bother posting
#15
Yeah, solos usually don't sound great by themselves, but I know what you mean when you say riffs get repetitive.
May I suggest something along the lines of "Under the Bridge" by RHCP, "Yellow Ledbetter" by Pearl Jam, or Hendrix's "Little Wing"? Those go in order from easiest to a bit harder.
They all have a similar Hendrix style that isn't too tough, and they're good songs to learn all the way through.

To learn answer to the question I asked.

It's not possible for me to know what solo is the best to learn, because i haven't learn them, maybe someone who has more experience can tell, that's why i posted.

Well you know, the obvious one's would be Black Sabbath, and Metallica.
And then Led Zeppelin, Pearl Jam, Pantera, System of a Down, Tool, Three Days Grace, and really a lot more but this should be enough to get at least 1 solo

Well, learn a Black Sabbath song. There's tons of great songs with epic riffs and relatively easy solos. Same with Led Zeppelin. Take it one at a time. Is there any particular Black Sabbath song that you think would be in your reach?

The first song, Black Sabbath. It's so epic, yet so easy. Sweet Leaf is also a good one.
I'd start off with Black Sabbath, though. Reference Youtube for the song if you don't have it already.

Nothing else matters. the solo took me a few hours to learn. The rest of the song is not terrible to learn either.
