Mkay, I consider myself an intermediate guitarist, been playing for a year or so but have most of the time given up on songs I find too hard. A while ago I then decided to focus more on starting to play slowly at first rather than jump in and try a song full speed straight away. Doing this, I managed to learn some tabs I wasn't able to before (mainly Crossing the Frame by Coheed and Cambria) Now I'm looking for some more energetic songs to play that are a challenge, but not impossible. I'm thinking rhythm for Heretics and Killers by Protest the Hero at the moment, but can anyone give some advice or song suggestions please?
hey i was the same way its good that your going back and taking it slow thats what im working on its better to be more accurate then to just be able to play along and have mistakes... but what kinds of music do you like?
Try some trivium, especially the solos, using the technique that you said, building up speed. Just a suggestion.

Hmmm, mostly anything that's rock/punk/metal, but I'm not looking for anything too heavy at the moment. Just look at the songs in the first post.
