Right now I'm working on I'm Alright by Neil Zaza. It's not too hard, and yet and the same time still providing a challenge. Definitely improving my string skipping technique.

EDIT: After reading the following 2 posts, I need to say that Crazy Train was my first shred song and then Eruption. I'm Alright is my 3rd.

First true shred... Marty's solos in Holy Wars.

My first would be ummmmm.....the solo from Skid Row's "Youth Gone Wild," if you consider that shred.

First, Zap by Eric Johnson. I can't really think of anything that was easy though.

My first was Satchs Always with me, always with you - hardly shred... but there's some fast legato passages and a tapping section. I made it my business when starting to shred to get every note clean and accurate though, and thought that'd be a mediocre technique wise song to start off with.

Stevie Vai - Tender Surrender

Cheated on a couple of parts (like the ascending sweep pattern) but apart from that I got it all down in a couple of weeks.

If metal songs with shreddy solos are being includedI actually can do a lot more of what is known as 'shred' than I thought, my first was probably Crazy Train seeing as that's being counted. Can play quite a few more, but 'Black Star' other than the solo is quite easy (just learn D# harmonic minor and play quickly.) Thats what I did anyways.
