Do you "usually" only learn one part (i.e. the solo), or the whole song.
On average, how long does it take you per song?
Which song took you a lonnnnng time... the longest... how long?

I learn the solo, or the hardest part, which ever it is, first so that i can get it out of the way. Then I learn the whole song. I just got done with the solo for One by Metallica, so now I'm learning the rest. The solo took me three days playing for nine hours total. Straight up solo the whole way through. I've been playing a little over a year, too, so idk how long the rest of the song is gonna take

I mostly learn whole songs. The song that took the longest for me to learn would be Dogs by Pink Floyd, since its just so bloody long.

I always learn the whole song. Because I like playing the whole thing with a backing track and it gives me a sense of satisfaction. Taking the time to learn a song varies depending on the difficulty of the song, and the level of the user. Ex. I learned California by Phantom Planet today in a couple hours while I am still learning the rest of Crazy Train and it has taken me two months so far.
Be cool.

I still have yet to learn a complete song in my one year of playing. But i know tons of guitar riffs from songs, and i'm ok with that.


im the same only i noe the songs minus the solo's just started working on solos like 2 months ago its going good so far.

if you didn't learn the whole song then you didn't learn how to play the song

Exactly. I find it annoying when people say they learned the song, but all they can play is the main riff or solo.
Be cool.

Hardest to learn for me was Laddies Night in buffalo by David Lee Roth...The solo played by steve via had one fast part in it that took me a while to get it right.

To really get a song down, it takes me about 1 to 1 and a half weeks, but I'll be playing other songs too.

The longest it took me to learn a song was Silent Night, Bodom Night. It took a month.

I'm the same, that vomit riff took me ages to get up to speed!

But i like to learn the whole song for some reason, i dont like only being able to play little bits.

I usually learn the parts I like best and in the process, I end up learning the whole song.

For me, it really varies to how long it takes to learn a song.

If you really have the song in your head, reading tabs and playing along doesn't take too awful long. If I've only listened to the song a few times and I'm trying to guitar pro it...it will take a while longer.

I'm usually working on about 3-5 songs at once, eventually focusing on one. The way most songs are, if you learn the main riff and the verse, you have about 70% of the rhythm done. It's less of learning the riffs themselves but more of the order of the song.

I do the same thing. Although with One, it was different. I started learning it a looong time ago, and learned all of it but the solo, and then just kinda stopped, but then I tried out for a band and decided to play that song, so I learned the solo in one night, a total of about three hours practicing. If I put my mind to it, I can learn a complete, fairly complicated song in a week. I just learned Floods by Pantera, and that took me about a week.

i usually remember riff by riff. So il look at a song, play it through a couple times, then go on to another song. Because of this i can only really play a couple songs from the intro to the outro. But if i look at a tab i can play mostly anything by just looking at, unless its really ridiculous steve vai ****. but as for the longest, technical difficulties by Racer x. Ive been playing it for about six months but i can never remember a couple riffs, and the outro solo.
