i really want to learn a harder more challenging song. everytime i play with someone more experience than me, i feel like a noob even though i've been playing for 2 years and not that bad of a player. i'm used to playing with a punk rock style but this time around i want to improve my speed and technique. i'm not that great with complex solos. any suggestions guys. i want an easy yet more advanced song.

Try Smoke On The Water. The full song, the solo in it should help you in your situation.

"Zombie" by the Cranberries. Not too difficult, but sounds impressive.

If you want to try doing those complex solos, start off with the pentatonic scale, and use some solos from songs for an idea of what you can do.

Hysteria by Muse is wicked fun in my opinion And the solo is pretty dang easy. Oh and fun...

Also "Fear of the Dark" by Maiden.
