Depends how much you practice. It took me maybe an hour and a half to learn to play the Master of Puppets solo, but it's taken me days or weeks to be able to play it 100% well. I'm still not there yet, actually.

Probably because I stopped practicing it...

Probably 43 minutes.

PS: you do realize that's entirely subjective, right?

this.

Honestly if you dedicate your heart and soul to learning it, give or take at least 20 minutes, if your an intermediate player, I'd say at least a few days to get the hang of it, I guess thats all i could say

Look, every answer you get here will only make you more depressed. Most people here are lying. 10 minutes, really? A difficult solo?

To properly learn a solo you must transcribe it, pitch wise and rhythm wise. That takes work. Then you must analyze it, understand why each note sounds the way it does over a certain chord.

Only then you learn to play it and hopefully, after you got it, you can create your own solo to that progression, based on what you've learned.

That's what it takes to properly learn something. If you just want to memorize patterns just because, you won't learn anything.

agree with both the above. I spent a whole day learning the intro to nothing else matters. can play its. now. bit well. no it needs a lot of work and still more work. solos take time and feeling.
when you can play just by the momentum of the music and it flows from you. then you can play a solo.

everytime I play something I try to improve

Very stupid question imo. To properly learn some solos up to a good standard can take weeks. As stated before, it is incredibly subjective. What can take one player 15minutes, may take another player over 10 hours.
#12
Maybe between half an hour to an hour for a difficult one. For an easy one maybe a few minutes.
#13
Somewhere between 1 minute and 10 years.

I guessing this thread will be closed my the end of the day.
