when you are working on solo, that you find hard, and you cant play it properly..do you ever just feel like dissapointed, because im running out of motivation.

Leave it, and learn some things you find easy, and others you can just about do. Then after a few weeks go back to it, and you'll find it easier.

well ye i guess i do, the worst thing is when you know you can play it and then you go to play it again and you can't for the life of you do it.

just try building it up slowly, i'm not going to go into the whole psycological process of how the brain learns things like this, but basically, if you get it right starting slowly and get faster the nerves in your brain form permanant bonds which allows you to recite that action over and over, thus allowing you to get faster and faster. The reason you sometimes go back to playing the solo and you can't do it is because the permanant nerve bondings haven't been made so they cannot be recited as easy.

try it and good luck

I think im just impatiant and want to be able to play the solo after a few days of trying it.
Its Randy Rhaods Mr.Crowley 1st and 2cd solo's. I can play both of them, and i would rate them like 5 out of 10....but i want them perfect and sounding good.

If something is absolutely kicking your ass guitar wise, go away and learn something else to build you confidence back up. Keep returning to the original issue and working at it. Over time it'll become easier and you can beat it.

If you want to master them you need to ask yourself why don't they sound so good, and 9 times out of 10 I reckon it will be an accuracy issue, in this case you need to slow that **** down and get the old metronome out. Sure it may be tedious, but if you don't want to do it I would start questioning if guitar is the right thing for you. Guitar isn't a collection hobby it's one of hard work and grit. Strive for them 16th notes at 160bpm, you know you can do it!
