I struggle with Stairway to Heaven. Sad thing is, I'm serious Though I don't actually like the song so it doesn't really matter to me at all. What a pointless post.

Eh, the little diddylitty on the main riff of Iron Maiden The Trooper. My fingers haven't really had a good work out in a while... stupid girlfriend...

Oh yeah, The Metal. Thatnks for mentioning that. I have troubles with that intro... I need to re-look up the tabs for it so I can get the damn notes right...

The intro riff to The Trooper.

For some reason I can just never play it cleanly, I always end up either missing the note on the bottom string or not holding it for long enough.

If you had the right kind of girlfriend, your fingers would have plenty of opportunities to work out.

I haven't had trouble with any riffs for a while, although a few months back I was bored and tried learning Disposable Heroes by Metallica. I gave up shortly into the solo. But hey, I can do the rhythm...
I play by my own rules. And I have one rule; There are no rules... but if there are, they're there to be broken. Even this one.


Confused? Good.

Metallica's solos ... I play all the rhythm songs and james solos. I just can't match the speed of my picking with my fingers
#26
Some stuff that has sweep picking. I'm so used to alternate picking, that sweep picking is hard for me. Some stuff that's meant to be sweep picked, I can do alt. picking, though.

Why only downpicking? That's just making things harder than necessary...

It may doesnt sound right, I used alternate picking on what people called the 'spider' riff of the song.

Technical difficulties by paul gilbert, you'd be suprised but the only real part i cant play is the little triplets up into the next powerchord based riff if you know what i mean

I find the intro rundown from In The Presence of Enemies Part 1 - Dream Theater pretty tricky

the violining bit in the intro for Black Star- dunno why but always screw it up!

How it's "meant" to be played? Why? Because Metallica doesn't want us to play it without getting cramps? **** that, you're an individual guitarist and don't need to do exactly the same as some guitar virtuoso (not that Kirk Hammett is one, just generally) just because that's "right".

Besides, downpicking requires more muscle, alternative picking requires more coordination. I say they're both equally worth, except for the fact that only downpicking is a waste of energy.

the bit in pain for pleasure after the cool power chord intro. i can play much harder stuff but i just cant play this right!!

A downstroke sounds different to an upstroke....just because someone can't downpick it...

A down stoke riff makes more of a crunchy sound than alternate, and it really doesnt require that much muscle, down picking just requires a relaxed picking technique and let the wrists do it. easier said than done granted, but still...

Just because someone can't even out the sounds of upstrokes and downstrokes, you mean? Every single pick sounds different no matter what you do.

It's fun seeing people struggle with a song you can play pretty much perfectly (MoP) =D
The intro riffs to Cowboys from Hell I find really tricky. And the intro to Classical Gas . I haven't even gotten to the main sectionn yet.
