Have you ever wondered what the hardest song would be to play on the guitar? Well here is a thread that can give you some idea of what the hardest songs are to play.

Personally at this stage it has to be "Master of Puppets" from Metallica

if you want a hard song to play try playing some of the stuff from opeth, the mars volta, dillinger escape plan, or some hendrix.

Something which isnt originaly on guitar, try playing some Gong on guitar.....

You're not even remotely original. Everyone loves to say things like that, and it only makes you into a boring dick.

i wouldnt say any rock or metal songs.

i would say it would be very early blues from the 20s, it requres all you fingers on you right hand for picking and the songs are so full with notes and phrases, mixing lead guitar and rhythm guitar at once.

Some acoustic blues song. I've been to several blues gigs, and the guitar work the guys play is nothing short of astounding. Except Zoot Money, I nearly died after that concert.

I had no idea such a skillful guitarist could make such shitty music. :p I couldn't get past one and a half minutes of that. If you're looking for some good shred, google video for Steve Vai, I think there's a video of him playing tender surrender.

Slowed down, that Shawn Layne stuff sounds like crap. It's just mindless shredding. There was one bit where he was actually playing a song, it was okay.

Why has no one bothered to mentioned he fact that this belongs in the GUITAR forum?

I'm a bassist, so the hardest for me would probably be Classical Thump or some Dream Theater.

That is NOT music.


No, it IS music you uneducated prat. Anything involving an instrument can be music, especially when some pours their heart and soul into it, learning to play like Shawn takes A LOT of time and effort, and although I agree with you in that I don't really enjoy the first couple of minutes, if you would have watched more than the first few minutes, you would realise that Shawn was a very talented and knowledgable man in musical terms, hell you may have learned something, and judging from your close- minded viewpoint, you need to learn all you can.

It depends what sort of player you are. If you only shred then the most basic finger picking rhythm parts will be hard, but if you only finger pick you won't be able to play fast picked rhythms, or shred solos. Playing the guitar takes a lot of different skills, the hardest song depends what skills you don't have.

in the words of dimebag darrell "I know a lot of players who don't have much knowledge of scales and modes and they're the ones who play from the heart"
