each time i try to play "DIO - we rock" i see that the muscles of my picking arm get real tense, and also my neck.
it's really annoying. how can i play that song without beeing really tense?

ur probably using ur arm too much. When you pick u are supposed to use your wrist and have ur arm relaxed. If you play standing up then maybe you need to loosen ur strap a bit.
'Lovely' does NOT have guitar solos!

Monterey Stage Series Electric
Some bright orange Ashton acoustic
Line 6 Spider 2 112
Variax 300
Umm...start from the beginning of learning guitar.

Be extremely finicky with your posture, you have to have to have to feel no tension all, once you feel absolutely no tension, I mean absolutely no tension even when Palm muting, trem picking etc, then try this soong again/
Find a different possition on the guitar to play it and see if its better for you arm and neck, or more easily, just dont play it so hard!

!!!feel the funk blast!!!
