hey guys, im having trouble finding decent interesting songs to learn, any help?

i would say im at least average, can sweep, arpeggiate, bend vibrato all that shit, and ive been trying to learn paul gilbert songs but they end up getting a little too complicated for me. what would be a stepping stone to that?

Look up stuff on youtube and practice Paul's lesson material. Until you can actually learn PGs stuff I'd suggest you look at other, less crazily brilliant, shred artists like Uli Jon Roth.

Sails of Charon would be a pretty ideal track to learn.
R.I.P. My Signature. Lost to us in the great Signature Massacre of 2014.

Avenged Sevenfold often use sweep picking and they bend all the time. Maybe give one of their songs a try.

sweepings not a problem at all sorry i shouldve specified. its the stacatto picking, im more of a legato guy, but playing all those notes like that is hard, i need to build up my technique

Well. First off, kudos on having samples to listen to. It's really the only way to tell what level someone's at when they're asking for advice. They sound great.

I'd say work on getting Jimi Hendrix solos down. They'll improve your phrasing and articulation...
