I can already do some easy classic rock solos, so how do I start playing metal if its too fast for me...

You just have to take it step by step, you won't turn into a metal god overnight. Start off playing slowly then work your way up from there.

A metronome. Start at like 1/4 the normal speed, once you can play it comfortably at that speed, bump it up 10 or so BPM, then repeat until you are up to normal speed.

Baby steps man.....and there are slower, easier Metal songs......

The other guys have it covered, but play it slowly, and build speed. Metal is pretty hard to play if you first start out.

yeah, tell me about it.


What are some easy metal songs for some Riffs and solos.

Maybe something sounding like Ashes of the wake by Lamb of God?

try playing some classic metal like iron maiden, judas priest. Metallica is also great for begginers wanting to learn some metal techniques.

Simple, you get good at playing the guitar.

Master the basics, then work on gradually improving your ability level giving yourself realistic short-term goals.

Here's a VERY rough guide as to what's a feasible time frame to aim for. ~I'm only going to list a couple of songs for each "checkpoint" as it were, but you'd learn a lot more than that. I'd say you'd want to know at the very least 10 or so songs of around the same pace and style before moving on.

0 months, simple chords, no solos eg:
Mull of Kintyre, Bad Moon Rising, Every Rose Has Its Thorn, Knocking on Heaven's Door.
|
V
4 months, fiddlier chord songs, no solos yet eg:
Highway to Hell, Smoke on the Water, All Right Now, Summer of 69, Teen Spirit
|
V
8 months, less chords, more riffs, go back and learn the solos you missed before try the ones in newer songs eg:
Iron Man, Shout at the Devil, Number of the Beast, Enter Sandman, Sweet Child
|
V
10 months faster songs eg:
Basket Case, Seek and Destroy, Battery, Crazy Train
|
V
12 months onwards and you should be ready to tackle pretty much anything you want.

I don't know how far along you are in that timeline, but bear in mind that if you jumped ahead too far and didn't spend enough time working on things you perhaps considered "too easy" or "boring" it hampers your ability to progress further.

It's easy Don't play metal if it's to fast for you. Learn to play stuff that is just above your level so you can progress into it. Learning guitar doesn't happen overnight, give it a while and you'll be a machine.

learn some metal songs that dont have solos and are just really fast all the time. work on your hammerons and pull offs, then check out some solo's.
