Im hoping this is the right forum for this.


I have been playing for 8 months now. I can do my entire Major and Minor petatonic perfectly along with some of my blues. Im not worried about learning my scales as much as learning a few songs with relativly easy solos, that are still a challenge and that I can learn from.

If anyone has any songs they think can help me I would greatly appreciate it.

The solos by them bands and in them songs are not easy, well not for someone who's been playing for eight months.

I'd say to try something like the Nothing else Matters solo by Metallica - that's an easy one.

sorry about that. I am into mostly metal, I also listen to some southern rock. Im not a fan of hair metal, but if it is a reccamendation I will learn it. Im not worried so much about likeing the song or the band so much as just learning the necessitys of soloing, so that I will be able to play the bands that I want later.

No the solos arent too easy, but definetly dooable (if thats a word) for someone whos been playing 8 months - just might be a little sloppy, but they will help you improve. They certainly did for me.

^ I learned Paranoid after 8 months of playing. Didn't learn it completely, though. I improvise in the end. It's based completely on the minor pentatonic box, so, it won't be much of a problem.

I Believe In A Thing Called Love by the Darkness has fairly simple leads, though the third lead part might be a bit much.
