A solo without bends is like...junk.

Um, what genre are you into?

Also, learn to bend, don't avoid things you can't do. Learn them.

don't even bother learning solos if you've had a guitar for 2 days. learn chords, notes, theory, etc. otherwise, you will be regarded as an uber- n00b.

oh please i could hardly play mission impossible and if you can id like to hear it

learn the basics first. learn rhythm, scales, modes, theory, and then that will lead to soloing and improv

if u can play stairway, then ur song list should be pretty open to many songs.

you should learn things like above. but u could try learning the solo to Seize the Day or No More Tears by Ozzy. that would keep u busy. If u can hit that first run after two days in Stairway, thats pretty good.
#10
lol.
i think seize the day might be a little too advanced for me.
im trying to learn it but i dont even get the fast parts of it lol.
i can play most of it, but VERY SLOW.
but im determined to learn seize the day now. hehe
thnx gotsa

dude, i think you still can't alternate pick ¿am i right? well first do these execises:

-^----^
-1-2-3-4-^---^
-----------1-2-3-4- ^---^
----------------------1-2-3-4,

but alterneting your pick movement (^= downstroke. nothing= upstroke) , so you get the alt. picking and more speed, accuracy, etc.

lol. then practice that 1-2-3-4 stuff to gain speed and accuracy. also search in the songs bar, 12 hour guitar work or something like that, thta includes variations of this execises. like

1-2-3-4
2-3-4-1
3-4-1-2, etc. it's also important that you doit through the fretboard unlti fret 12. what i mean is:

1-2-3-4---------------------------------------1-2-3-4-2-3-4-5
----------1-2-3-4-------------------1-2-3-4---------------------2-3-4-5
-------------------1-2-3-4-1-2-3-4---------------------------------------2-3-4-5.

and that (but on the six strings) it might be tedious and boring, but once you do that for a month 10 minutes daily, you will know it helps.

do you mean you just got a new electric guitar? or is it your very first guitar?? im confused
I came here to drink milk and kick ass.

o.OOOOO

some random classical bit from To Live is To Die xD
that was the first thing i learned, and sadly i've never taken the initiative to listen to a full metallica song


fingerpicking is the pwn right now for you, it'll make your playing sound much more 'spicey' than you'd play single notes at a time
i have a 'white guitar'

lulz i herd Dream Theater hz sum ez stuff...

but really i agree with everybody else. Before you want to solo learn scales to get your hands used to all the movements and build up some theory knowledge etc. The first solo you can try in a couple of weeks is the smells like teen spirit solo. edit: just remembered that one has bends ^^ there... you can't even learn the easiest solo without knowing how to bend properly :P
