So I want to join a band that needs a Dual guitar(rythm and leads) but more of a lead guitarist. I don't know if I good enough becuase I have been only playing for one whole year and they have been playing 2-3 I think, so should I join or not?

I know how to play the leads for these songs:
Behemoth - Conquer
Ozzy -Crazy train
Iron Maiden - Number of the beast (first solo)
Arch Enemy - Revolution Begins,Sliverwing, and Nemesis
Children of bodom - Tie My rope and downfall
Nightwish - Nemo
Pantera - Walk and CFH
Dethklok - Bloodtrocuted and The Dethklok theme,Thunderhorse


I know a bit of theory,I think I have good timing,and when there is a solo I can't do I try very hard to to get it down/right most of the time?

It's impossible to say if you're good enough if we haven't heard you play. I mean, I thought I could play Arpeggios From Hell after only 1 year, but in truth it sounded horrible. So post a sound clip, then I'll answer your question

EDIT: I changed my mind, join the band, what's the worst that could happen? xD

Join. Your song repetior(sp?) seems pretty badass, and a band experience, wether it lasts or not will be good for you.
Then there's this band called Slice The Cake...

Bunch of faggots putting random riffs together and calling it "progressive" deathcore.
Stupid name.
Probably picked "for teh lulz"

Obv. if you have only been playing for a year then we all know your not very good.

But join and try and keep up. Its not gonna make you worse.

I highly, highly doubt you can play those two well for one year's experience, especially Downfall.
Be cool.

No, its not out of jealousy. Its just I highly, highly doubt you can play that piece well to where it is decent sounding.
Be cool.

It does sound good. Because Beast and the Harlot is in my skill level of playing, and is a not an out of reach solo for someone who has been playing 16 months. But solos such as the ones found in Downfall, and Nemesis, to name a few, seem out of reach for someone who has been playing "only one whole year". I'm not being an idiot here, I am being realistic. I think other members would agree with me on this one.

I guess me and you have different standards of hard songs then?


Kissing the shadows is a hard song but look over downfall and tell me that it is really hard to do.nemesis like come on it is not a really hard song at all just look over them.

I don't need to look over them, I own and listen to them frequently. Downfall isn't a hard song, but it is for someone who has been playing 1 year, along with Nemesis. If you can truly play the solos to these songs well, then I'm happy for you. But I am speaking out of experience for these forums. Many people in this same forum have lied about being able to play Dragonforce songs at 11 months, or fast sweep picking at 8 months only to have been proven very wrong. If you could record some of it, that would be great.
Be cool.

I don't think being realistic is good idea. I don't think making sense out of this situation will help either, because two different people have two different points of "realistic". I think you can join.

...Where do I even begin?

TS, you as us for our opinions, then when thedude051 gives you an honest opinion (mind you, it is a common thing for people to think they play well, but in reality sound like crap), you just completely dog him out? You're acting extremely childish; if you can't take criticism, why the hell did you ask for it in the first place? The truth is, it's hard to tell how well a person plays just by listing some songs he "can play." 9 times out of 10 the person thinks he can play a song, but when he records it and listens to himself, it sounds awful. thedude051 just wants to make sure this isn't the case. He is also being a gentleman by not blowing up at you in the way you are at him. Therefore, thedude051 gains my respect, while you, on the other hand, are nothing but a punk in my eyes. Have fun in that band, but here's some advice: Try not to blow up at your bandmates.

You didn't even play the whole solo like how I did.You playing like 0.5/4 of the solo.

there are no two solos it is a whole solo and you didn't even do it which means you when against your word.guess I was right in saying you couldn't do the solo.

You said a clip. I played a clip. I'm sorry, but my hands are tired. I can play it tomorrow if you like because right now I am very sloppy because I my hands are exhausted and so am I. You also didn't play the second solo, or the one after that. But anyways, I never assumed you were a mean person or anything like that. I accept your apology, and I apologize to.

Agreed. But I would like to hear the rest of Nemesis if wouldn't mind. Not as a test or anything, but I thought the first solo you recorded for it was good. I'll record the rest of B & H if you would like tomorrow.

See, you are an easy one. For example, a guy has been playing 1 month, and practices..oh..lets say 14 hours a day. Is he going to be playing Human Abstract or Necrophagist solos? I just proved you wrong. Enjoy your day.
