Well... I honestly don't have a guitar teacher, and I learn myself.
Seems like when I play with my fingers it seems my finger positions are wrong. Anyway.
Here's a solo vid of smoke on the water of mine. I've been playing since July 2007, which makes.. 8 months in about 3 days.
Pointers would really help me out, but that was my first attempt at the solo, I can maybe do it a little cleaner.

I also forgot to add, i'm working on Stairway to heaven, but I just don't have real motivation anymore to play guitar I don't know what to play. Any suggestions, or do I just keep going with stairway to heaven? (I'm talking about the solo.)

I thought it was personally pretty good. If anything, I'd just say try to downpick more (but that's all a matter of personal comfort and style). Work on trying to learn some Dragonforce, haha, just kidding. I would say Metallica has some really great songs to practice your chops on!

Agreed. Metallica (Master of Puppets and before) is such a good way to cut your chops without getting too stressed.

EDIT: For 8 months, that was real good dude.

Moar songs: Communication Breakdown, Back Door Man, Bring it on Home. (if you still wanna keep the classic rock thing going)

Metal wise, here are some fun ones: Whiplash, Welcome to planet mother****er, primal concrete sledge, chemical warfare, arise, betrayer, peace sells but whos buying. (tried to spread out the bands)

Have fun, and even if you can only handle 1 riff from a song, learn the **** out of it.

LOL, I'll have to admit, that was one of my school friends.
Oh man, that comment was gold, to me. :P
