Dude, i'm doing this on Master of Puppets and Don't Fear the Reaper. It sounds like it should work.
#122
I'm gonna do Mr. Crowley. I've been working on this song for awhile and still havn't got either solos down. I got half of the 2nd solo though.
#124
What the hell, I'll do Master of Puppets. I've been working on the first solo anyway.
I get very tense around apples...Well, I get very tense generally. I think I've fallen into the trap of blaming fruit.

I'm gonna try this with Snow by Red Hot Chili Peppers and the solo to Comfortably Numb by Pink Floyd. 21 days seems like a long time though, haha.
#133
i'll give it a go, i usually have difficulty in learning songs all the way through and tend to focus on the main riffs, so this should be good for actually learning the entire song
i'm going to try and learn Satellites and Astronauts by In Flames, even though its not particularly fast, it sounds awesome.
#134
This seems quite interesting. I'll give it a try, I'll work on the solo of Sweet Child O' Mine (hammer-on/pull-off part when the wah kicks in) and F.C.P.R.E.M.I.X. by The Fall Of Troy.

Here I go!

After three days, it really worked. Then I had to go back to work and I haven't really practiced since last week. But it really does work!

Im 8 days in, and I'm already able to play the song at full speed from memory...
From not knowing the song at all I think that's a good jump.
The rhythm track, mind you, not the leads.
The leads are later.

Updated list! And judging by the amount of quotes from people starting to pop up everywhere in the opening post this does work, even after a couple of days already. Thing is obviously it's a lot more fun to actually practice it fast, but this is more perfect practice and everybody knows:
Practice doesn't make perfect, perfect practice makes perfect.

I'm going to try Battery @ 100 bpm , and Good times, bad times @ 50 bpm.

I just tried this exercise with some sweep picking for just 45 mins and I noticed a huge improvement already.

So... I'm confused. Say if I can play something cleanly at 120 bpm, and it's supposed to go 160. Do I subract 20 and play it at 100, or just play it at 120?

Yup, you play it 20 beats slower than the speed at which you can perfectly play it, approx. And totally agree with your last sentence.

Sounds interesting, I'll give it a shot and hey, even if I make a collosall **** up of everything at least I'll be some way into learning something new.

Mr.Big - Green Tinted Sixties Mind (Paul Gilbert version)

I'll be keeping a blogging accounting my progress with this method.
Lyrics, just breaks between killer solos.

Hey, i think ill join this;

Ill take black knight by deep purple

I would like to learn ..and justice for all, but that look's abit to long (for now)

Just wondering do i break up the song into intro, chorus etc and practice each section until i know all the riff's and then once i can play them slowly but solidly do i start to build up tempo?
#149
What the heck, I'll give it a shot. How do you find the speed for a song, say,
Judas Priest - Locked In?

Memorize it as best you can first, that way nothing gets inbetween you and practicing.

Memorizing doesn't seem like it's hard for me, but maybe it's just different for every person. If you have a hard time memorizing then yes, break it into parts.
#152
Ze_Metal: Thank's, ill do that, ill break in into reasonable section's then i can practice those section's for say 20/ 30 minute's at a time and swap between them, then when i think i can remember each section ill write down a pattern of how it goes, i.e. intro x2, main riff x 3, solo.... etc then i can just quickly see what pattern come's next instead of going through all the tab's.

Well i mean that is the plan, i dont know what it will turn out like... but ill let's you all know!

Also i dont have a hard time memorizing, i just think breaking it into junk's will stop me from quitting since if i go through the whole thing bit by bit slowley ill just get fed and ill probably see no improvement as quickly as i would doing smaller sections, i think :\

Yeah, breaking things down into parts makes it a lot easier. When I was learning piano I had a teacher and teachers always give you peices to play that are extremely hard at the time. But you need to break it down and realize that it's not hard if you know what you need to do and what you're aiming for. Same thing applies for guitar. If you're learning a hard song, don't just give up just break it up into section and get that part down perfect. Then go onto another and another until you put them all together. Also, don't be afraid to skip parts, like start at the intro and then maybe go to the outro. There is no doubt that you'll get better if you nail a hard out and intro perfectly which makes the rest of the song less daunting.
#155
I'll participate. The song I'll be doing will be Symbolic by Death including the solo with included string skipping, one thing I never practice.

I'll do it. Sounds like fun. Since I'm a noob, I'll do

Can't Stop - RHCP

I'll record it and give you guys the results afterwords. Does anyone know where I could maybe get a backing track of drums and bass or somthing without guitar of this or other songs? I'm not really sure where to DL those.

so what is the best method to increase speed from what he had mentioned?

playing the lick /riff/ something at the same speed until it becomes a habit or gradually increasing speed?

There is a quote on the first page of a guy who did it, and a youtube link for results.
