Any song from a 70's punk or thrash band, pretty much.

Do Mordecai by BTBAM...the way I play it I use standard 2 finger, 3 finger triplet style and 32123 type 3 finger all at a pretty high tempo in the beginning (the second half is all medium speed that can be done 2 finger). The fretboard work isn't insane but it's certainly not easy.

It should give you a pretty fun challenge that isn't insanely hard

Heart of the Sunrise by Yes and Glasgow Kiss by John Petrucci are a couple of good ones.

Not to be nitpicky... But it's not the same to practice and trying to achieve a quicker left hand technique or the right one.

Chromatic Fantasy and Donna Lee are good for the left hand.

The guitar part for How Could I by Cynic is particularly good for the right hand.

Just at the top of my head.

I really like Dreamscape by In Flames.

It's not too hard, but it's a very fun song that's really good for warming up I find.

uhm, well, the bassline to Rude Mood by SRV: youve got to play the note and then a muted one, at about 250 bpm, if you can nail that, youre exceptionally good.

umm, anaesthisa by mettalica is good for tapping speed, but tbh its not that good a song.

Pretty good (i think) for both hands.

The problem I've had for a while, is that I'd developed my right hand quite well. Playing dead notes or root notes, I can play at some pretty good speeds with my right hand.

Equally, tapping and such, I can achieve some good speeds with my left hand.

However, whenever I tried to put them together to do anything complex, I just couldn't do it. Poor coordination more than anything.

I think it's important to practice them both together and just gradually build up speeds with your scales and such, so that then when you do reach the higher speeds, you're capable of playing more complex licks because your hands can work together.

Playing drills probably the best way to get both hand coordinated, fast and agile. But most people would rather just play songs.
