My friends told me I am good at rhythm guitar, but I cant solo well. So I decided to concentrate on my lead playin for a week or 2.. So suggest me some songs(solos)

Song Criteria:
1. Standard Tuning
2. Metal or rock genre
3. nothing too advanced, intermediate level

Hmm well the first solo I learned was the solo from "I Love Rock 'N Roll" by Joan Jett, then another early one I learned was the solo to "Whole Lotta Love" by Led Zeppelin. Those really helped, but what helped more was just learning the blues scales and improvising over 12 bar blues progressions (plenty of lessons about these on this very site). In other words learn how to play all the solos you want, but at the same time work on improvising too. Good luck man.
