For a complete beginner I would say

Is there anybody out-there. (it will be hard as a first song but it will help lots.) Classic rock.

To learn sweeping I learned serrana by Jason becker. Neoclassical.

To learn alternate picking I learned the nitro freight train solo. (Hair metal)

To learn legato, I have tried a lot of buckethead songs. (experimental)

To learn tapping I tried midnight. (experimental)

To learn tapping in a more serious level I learned the solo to Turn around by bumblefoot (punk pop)

To learn unique techniques I been learning flamenco songs, although im not very good at them yet.

Songs that personally pushed ME to the next level:

Megadeth - "Hangar 18"
Steve Vai - "Tender Surrender"

Liquid Tension Experiment - "Universal Mind" still a work in progress but damn is it difficult to get it sounding just right.
#13
Technical Difficulties - Racer X?

Quote by fatgraymatt
I love metal but death metal's just a bit too much for me. The most I can get into is serious-illness metal.

Unless you're sure she likes you, telling her you like her has a 110% chance of failing.

But hey, at least you have a 10% chance of absolutely guaranteeing failure.

I have four versions of that song on my iTunes library. I have almost 10 hours of Steve Hackett music. I also have his poster in my room. Not a huge fan, though. Some of his stuff is extremely good, but not everything...

Seriously, according to iTunes, I've only listened to 28 of his songs that are in my library, and the poster came from one of his concerts I went to a few years ago when my dad took me there to introduce prog rock to me.
