I know how to play paranoid by black sabbath just need to work on the solo. I am really into creed , shinedown , megadeth , as i lay dying , alter bridge , slipknot , august burns red , and all the thrash metal , emo , hardcore , stuff. I would like something that would help me with right hand tapping and soloing . Also I would prefer some drop d .

The Thing That Should Not Be by Metallica.

^^ Really easy song, and the solo is also pretty easy.

Strangely enough, it's in D standard, not drop D.

If you want something pretty simple in Drop D, take a look at Dying in Your Arms by Trivium. It's (patronizingly) straightforward and the solo isn't too complicated.
#6
the majority of songs in e can be made into drop d pretty easily, though i suppose you might find some chord shapes difficult
#7
what would be a easy avenged7x i ve tried to learn trivium they r a little to advanced for me i like avenged7x better so i would be able to stay with it and finish it i tried to learn some justin bieber fir a friend of mine and it was simple but i just couldnt play it so ........

Them Bones - Alice in Chains, no tapping but plenty of one finger action.

Funnily enough it's what I learned right after Paranoid.

try learning The Poison by bullet for my valentine. The intro has tapping and its in drop d. Atleast i think. Might be drop c but still. Solo isnt too bad to learn, just might take a little time. And your into shinedown but alice in chains is not metal enough for you? hmm
My Gear:
-Schecter Omen w/ emg's
-Ibanez xpt700 Xiphos
-Peavey 6505+ 112 combo
-Raven 100w

Don’t take life too seriously, you won’t get out alive.

To end the rapture - tapping madness, Lips of Deceit or Chapter Four are like the wickedest old sevenfold songs there are, quite easy as well.

Rage Against the Machine - Killing in the Name of

Soundgarden - Spoonman

Foo Fighters - Everlong (okay, it's not metal, but it's still a good/easy song to learn in drop d)

If I am correct, the first song I ever learned in drop D tuning was "Everybody's Fool" by Evanescence. It's not metal, I believe, but really simple. Just a suggestion, if you want to check it out.
#19
Well if you want drop songs check out Bullet for my valentine for east ones. Although they are in Drop C you could learn their songs and just play em in drop D.
#21
Avenged Sevenfold - Unholy Confessions

the only hard part is the pinch harmonics


I second that really good song to learn
#22
And, when you can do that song most metalcore is a cake walk!
