I doubt people have fought holy wars and killed millions of people in the name of the Beatles, either. So, yeah, Jesus probably was bigger than them.

Just practice it. It took me a couple of days to master the solo in Stairway to Heaven. So just practice and you'll have it in no time. And yes, practicing scales will definately help.

well, there aint no quick fix, break the solo up into a bunch of licks and play them til your fingers bleed ( or..alternatively..til you cna..play it..to..speed..cleanly.) anyways, yeh just practice at it and you'll get it, if you get mad or frustrated leave it for a bit, good luck

Sounds like me before i got lessons. BTW, it's going to take a long time to do this... no matter how far you think you've come.

Dumbass that is a classical guitar, use nylon strings or the neck will crack... and not the kind you were smoking when you wrote this.

another thing, the solos. i don't think they are all picking, most of the solos are Hammering right? just to clarify, i don't want to learn the wrong thing

Oh hey, I got a challenge for you. Learn to play "Building the Church" by Steve Vai. No, just the intro to it. That'll keep you busy.

Hehehehe....
