Give 10 UGers a rope and ask them to pull. 4 will push, 1 will ask for buttsecks, 2 will tell you get an Ibanez and the last 3 will start complaining about Line6 Spiders.

Iron man definently is a great place to start with solos. Try learning that and take it slow when you play.

#15
my first solos were

iron man (can be done all down picking. Hell i prefer to down pick it
1st solo in master of puppets (alternate picking)

If you're trying to just learn entire solos, it really doesn't matter what solo it is?as long as the entire solo is within your technical ability to play. So start off with a short solo, memorize it, then try memorizing shorter ones. Eventually, move up to a really long solo. For a long solo, learn it in sections. Try about 8 bars at a time. Memorize 8 bars, then the next 8 and so on and so forth.

Hey guys! I just started playing electric guitar should I get a Gabson Lay Pall or a Femdor Startokaster. I like the picks on the gabsons but i like how sweet femdors look. Beforre i get a gabson what company makes them?

it's not really a "solo" per se, but the mini-solo-thing in 69 Tea by Seether will impress people who don't play guitar.

Do you know any scales? Arpeggio patterns? I'd think it would be better to know what's behind the solos rather than memorizing frets with tab since I'm assuming you don't read.

read music........ i have a scales poster with a bunch of scales but there to hard for me
#26
They're not too hard for anyone (or I hope not), all it takes, especially if you're "teaching" yourself, is discipline, and practice. Choordbooks got a great virtual thing that plays the scale for you and you can select the key (http://www.chordbook.com/guitarscales.php). But basically all I'm saying is if you can memorize some basic scale shaps, like major, pentatonic minor, maybe natural minor, and harmonic, and know the key of the song you can start improvising on your own, rather than memorizing someone elses solos. Although then again learning others solos is a good way to practice scales and arpeggios etc. depending on what they use.

I just figured it would be good to have a little background and have the shapes in your hands before just going memorizing the solo tab and not knowing what the hell it is.

he means, get guitar pro or power tabs, and open up the song "no boundaries" and change the bpms to 5 or so.

remembering was a problem for me too, try learning it maybe 5-10 notes at a time, then starting from the beginning until you get to that point. ex. (going by 3 notes)

-1-2-3-
-4-5-6-
-1-2-3-4-5-6-
-7-8-9-
-1-2-3-4-5-6-7-8-9-

hope thats not too hard to understand. Try the solo to Californication by Red Hot Chili Peppers, you should find it easy.

When I started learning how to play other band's solos I had a different strategy. Find the solo that you "have to learn". I don't care how hard or easy it is. Right now you don't have to concern yourself with technical music theory, but moreso with with getting your technique down as well as a feel for the neck on your guitar. In a sense, you can't become an effective race car driver without knowing how to drive correctly.

My suggestion:

Find the solo that you really want to learn. I don't care how difficult it is! Wanting to practice is much more rewarding than "having to practice". In short, don't rely on suggested solos unless you actually click with the solo and have a great desire to learn it.

Find the tabs! You can get many from this site, but I would suggest getting a tab book or a magazine with it included. However, you may also luck up and find a good tab here on the site.

I assume you already have the song. If it's CD you should rip it onto your computer and crank up your favorite media player and find out where the solo begins. Note the time and just keep moving the slider back to that point after the solo plays.

Play the song loud but keep your amp a little lower than the song. This way you can easily see what a problem is actually resulting from and correct it on the spot.

As far as "remembering" goes. Don't let fear of your capabilities or capacity hold you back. Play the whole solo... go through it over, over and over again. Naturally, you'll remember it after a single session. Hell, sometimes I just play the solo over and over again in my mind while I'm at work or just sitting outside on the porch.

You'll get better and feel better when you get closer to playing the solo correctly. The speed and technique should come naturally, but try to avoid doing thing the "easy" way, because they can put you in a rut to where you actually have to unlearn something and relearn it in order to progress musically.

Good luck,
BE
