Hello,

I'm fairly decent at guitar but I'm not very fast and I would like to build up speed. What are some metal songs that have a medium speed? I'm thinking that older metal (Judas Priest, Iron Maiden etc.) would be appropriate for this as thrash and death metal are usually fast.

If you're bored and you really want to help me, it would be very helpful if you could make a list of metal songs in order of speed so I have a progression that I could follow.

I like all metal except that which ends in 'core'.

Thanks, keep it br00tz

Opeth - Blackwater Park


EDIT: Oh, I see you wanted brutal music.

The first solo in the Trooper by Maiden doesnt seem too difficult, and its medium speed. Hand of Stone by Mastodon is medium speed, and a bit of a challenge.

No no no, I just meant keep it brutal... you know, what metal heads say to one another I'm aware that Judas Priest and Iron Maiden aren't brutal.

It would be easier to suggest songs if you gave an example of a "medium speed" metal song, many people have very different definitions of medium speed.

It didn't seem possible, but apparently Messiah can spam even more now.

Try Exciter, maybe Razor.
O what a disgrace if such a despised and base race, which worships demons, should conquer a people which has the faith of omnipotent God and is made glorious with the name of Christ!

Most mastodon isnt very fast. Take a look at Blood and Thunder, and the Wolf is Loose.
