So heres the deal. Ive been playing guitar all day today as there's been nothing else to do and, in short, i've got no idea what do do on it next. Ive just been learning whatever songs come to my mind but they all seem pretty bland and nothing particular striking stands out. I'd rate myself as an average guitarist and i'm looknig to see if you guys (and girls) can help. My gear is fairly limited so some stuff i doubt ill be able to set up for but yeh. Fire away. Oh and im particularly into mainstream rock, punk and indie so that might help narrow down the choices.

I've been trying the famous smooth solo/song/whatever it is and i've got pretty far. In truth i suck at soloing. Anything remotely fast and im stuck. I'm quite ashamed to say ive never actually listened to metallica but somebody told me that enter sandman had a fairly easy solo in it. Was that a lie? Is that even old metallica haha. Thanks for the ideas

Judging from the bands you like, listen to some Four Year Strong and try to play some of their stuff, its pretty fun and i bit more challenging than Blink, if it seems to fast, start slow and build up speed, it will help with your palm mutes and string skipping. Also the solo from the Middle by Jimmy Eat World is a pretty fun one to learn, and its reasonable fast.
