Well that's what I want to know . Which song have you learned that you felt was really doing something for your playing . Just searching for a new song to learn , but I need to feel like I'm improving . Lately I've been getting my hands on some Gilmour licks , the trooper by iron maiden and some new incubus stuff .
Thanks in advance

when i learned judith by a perfect circle i felt that it increased my skill b/c i managed to play the two guitar parts with just one guitar and mix in all the glass slide work that howerdell does too.
blood of the scribe - lamb of god- helped my string skipping and alternate picking

nicollo pagannini's 5th caprice-helped everything
satch boogie, i hadn't really played any technical songs before and that really helped
Mood for a Day as well as The Clap by Yes

those whipped my fingers into shape
As soon as I started playing jazz my guitar skills (and knowledge) doubled in half the time. In other words, it learned so much.

Michael Romeo- You think he plays fast? You should watch him eat cream pies.
Vivaldi's summer 3rd movement (violin version note-for-note on guitar). I discovered neo-classical with that

Technical Difficulties

Quote by Johnljones7443
Shredding is having control over your instrument and being free of technical obstacles so your music is not limited by your playing ability.

Classical Gas is when you fart and it smells like the inside of a violin. EVERYONE knows that. n00bs...
well when i learnt a cold day in hell by parkway drive it helped me with alternitive piking on diffent strings. everyone should check out parkway drive there songs are great for geting your picking perfect
Black Dog
Nobodies Fault but Mine
and theres another one i cant really think of right now...

all led zeppelin though...besides that, i guess simple man raised my clean picking skills and yeah, every song you play raises your ability to play well a little bit.
When I first started playing, the entire American Idiot album helped me... Now, recently, Vicarious by Tool and Sweet Child O Mine have helped me.
Babe Ruth - The Mexican.
I just had to learn all the scales and fills everywhere. That helped with my legato quite a bit.
classical gas - mason williams
bed of razors - children of bodom

Therefore your argument is rubbish, as well as being full of profanity and anti-Semitic. Are you Mel gibson, by any chance?
Id have to say it was learning how to finger pick stairway to heaven after about playing guitar for a year.

The Clap is my rival. It is my goal.

Im actually jealous.
I bought the Billy Talent CD in the summer of 2006. I attempted to play some of the songs during the summer, but I couldn't play most of them. By November, I could play basically every song on the CD. I think that after that period, I actually became half-decent.
It's difficult to win unless you're bored.
Sultans of Swing-Dire Straits
The Four Horsemen-Metallica

I dont really learn songs, i try to pick up licks from players i like and improvise, but those 2 helped me alot
Sad statue and lonely day, it gave me the will to actually keep on going forward in guitar playing
When I first learned Stairway to Heaven, I felt like I was on top of the world
Sent from my iPad.
Of course Stairway, as many have said, it's a classic.

I like songs that give me a sense of satisfaction, like "Simple Man" by Lynyrd Skynyrd. Once you start getting through that, you just feel awesome because it's such a great song. It's the same with "Sweet Child O' Mine" by Guns N' Roses, once you can cleanly play that (and even start making up your own good sounding solos for it) you feel like you're starting to get somewhere with your playing.

Honestly though, nothing is better than making up a song, having others hear it, and give you compliments on your Guitar playing. Try not to smile too much
Quote by Jesus Himself Christ
You know, you're one pretty cool guy, Kylster.
