If not limb from limb by them

Sure why not. If you can play a full hard album thats pretty impressive and also worth a mention.

Well, that would have to be one of my own, an 8-minute track called When Dreams Subside...

Other than that, probably Overture 1928, I usually can't be bothered with learning entire songs for the sake of it, only pick out the parts that sound like they'd be good to learn...
#13
Glasgow Kiss by John Petrucci
Or maybe Home by Dream Theater
Can play them both start to finish now.

Vivaldis summer tribute by patrick rondat (spelling) or arpegios from hell by yngwie malmsteen

Not particularily on topic but a good piece of advice nonetheless. TS, you should try to play that song perfectly. You've identified your trouble is in the solo. There's no point in focussing on playing the whole song from start to finish, your aim should be to perfect the solo. Once you do that you'll be able to practice the whole way through and it will be efficient practicing. Try to identify the parts that trip you up in the solo and practice them a lot. From now on don't play the full song unless you've played the solo correctly 5 times. Do something like that. that way you'll be able to play the song much better and one of the more impressive parts will sound better.

Do this with all of the songs you know.

It wouldn't be that bad if it wasn't for the stupid harmonic minor thing at 05:13 that my bassist wrote for it, not only do I have to sync it with the keyboards but I have to keep doing it for 8 goddamn measures...

Hope you like the song, and thanks for asking

Thats a pretty kick ass song along with a kick ass solo. I am impressed. How long did it take to do?

Listen to SRV's version of Mary Had a Little Lamb. IMO, one of his best and most underrated songs.

As for answering the question, there are really only a few songs that I learn all the way through. The most difficult ones would be between The Attitude Song (Steve Vai), Curse of Castle Dragon and Full Tank (both Paul Gilbert). In the latter two, I just improvise the solos.

Thanks man It started with me and the drummer jamming out most of the riffs during a lunch break at school, then we structured it out and added a few riffs during band practice, and that was pretty much it :p It's a cool way of writing songs, because you never know what your bandmates might come up with...

yeah iron... i'd agree. but SRV is legend man... lenny is absolutely amazing. another legend that a lot of you youngen's can learn from is jeff beck! he'll play stuff that'll make your butt go poop.

in all fairness the hardest song i ever played would probably be erotomania by dream theater... so much so i started warming up with it... but that was a long time ago... preferring my own music at this point. learning from others is cool... but doing your own music... priceless... mastercard... get yours now

Too old to rock and roll - Jethro Tull.

It's not challenging on a technical level, but it's got some fiddly sections and there's a lot of chord changes to remember.

I'm also working through "Songs from the Wood", which has more elision and odd bars and key changes, but has a very limited amount of guitar work.

Definitely tougher than a couple of power chords and a linear guitar solo.

I used to play alot of Metallica stuff, minus solos, but as Ive started listening to other (harder) things Like Dream Theater, Satch etc, I ve found going back and learning the Metallica (Puppets, Horsemen, No Remorse, Creeping Death)stuff isnt that hard any more.

I can play Pull Me Under (pretty much note perfect most of the time), and I'm in the middle of learning the Stream Of Consciousness solo, as well as the fast part in Erotomania (all Dream Theater - can you guess my favourite band? )

I can also play Joe Satriani's Day at the Beach pretty well, (a song my mum/gran/aunties actually like) though it's all tapping, which to someone who doesnt know how to do it or cant do it it would look pretty difficult, but it is actually a very easy song, once you learn the main 2 or 3 patterns.

Anybody here think any rush songs are difficult? I quite like them but havent heard them mentioned.
