I've recently decided that i really want to become a good guitar player. One of the things im trying to improve on is my speed and dexterity. I've been looking up solos to play but can't find any tabs that are challenging (turns out alot of the bands i like tap alot). However im definitely not ready for any crazy Dragonforce type stuff. Anyone have any suggestions on practice material?
you know you want to learn the solo from Cinnamon Girl by Neil Young... definitely the hardest solo ever...
Mine was from 'Smoke on the water' or the first solo from 'Fade to black'. cant really remember..

smoke on the water was actually my first solo too... are you also one of the few who learned more than just the riff of the song?
Errrm the solo at the end of "Lip Gloss and Black" by Atreyu, nice ballady feel to it I think.

Reading that made me want to go try, and to my surprise...it's almost the first solo I've been able to play (non-original of course).

Domination by Pantera.

seriously? that sounded really hard to me!!!

im a beginner...my first solos are seize the day and "a tout le monde". I was inspired by Jason Becker. Problem is: being inspired by a shred guitarist makes the learning process a little not-so-encouraging. Then I found Dime.
