You're probably best for rythm at the mo then.

I suggest that you download powertab (google it) then search on this website for the "steve vai 10 hour guitar workout" (Not sure if it's ten or 10) use that, then sign up to the powertab archive (again google it) and download the yngwie malmsteen guitar workshop 1 and 2 and also look for the joe satriani "10 things to make you better at guitar" they all have things that help your picking, speed, and technique, and also learn scales, like the minor pentatonic scale (real easy to remember) and just improvise some blues (blues is easy to improv)

practice more by different artists. Just look at one of the thousands of easy solo thread and on of the hundreds of medium solo threads and then listen to alot of 60s 70s and 80s rock theyre loaded with solo's, and just learn the stuff you think sounds cool. learn it in half speed if you have to (you can use audacity to slow down a song without changing pitch, google that)

above exercises would probably do you good too

and start playing in a band dud ^^

It is LEARNED not LEARNT. Sorry, but grammer is important.

I like your avatar.

And I think that solo is pretty nice, it's really basic, but doesn't sound too tough.
If you can play it pretty cleanly I'd say you're doing fine.

And you just forgot the apostrophe in "someone's" while insulting someone's insulting of someone else's grammar

No. It's called a possessive apostrophe.

No, it is possessive. "Learnt" is also correct grammar in British English.

There is no such thing as british english, as english is spoken in England. Therfor it is just English, Wales have there own language so there can't be a British English.

wow you guys are ****ing rediculous. "hey guys, lets go into a thread and spam by correcting eachother's spelling and grammar. teeehee". shut up and just help the damn guy.

threadstarter, i think thats a pretty easy solo at 18 months of practice. if you need help picking, i found that playing 1-2-3-4 up and down the strings helped a lot. you can also downpick everything and upstroke everything to work on speed with your picking hand.
