Hey guys, This is my first post (I think it is anyways)

Last year on Christmas I got a guitar, a Fender Squire. I took lessons for a little over a month, and I've caught on pretty well. Now I'm learning on my own.

Right when I got my guitar, there was one song that I ALWAYS had stuck in my head that I'd like to learn to play. It was "Bat Country" by Avenged Sevenfold. I've got some Hal Leonard tabs of the song, and I'm working on it 5+ hours everyday/night now. I'm up to about half way through the solo, and I'm having troulbe with a combination of string skips and speed and sometimes just speed. Anyone have any help for me or anything that I could do to work on it?

Thanks guys
-Joe

Practice it slower. Make sure you play it clean and practice. It will come.

Ok, thanks for the help guys! I'll check the lesson out.


The main idea is to practice the thing that's causing you problems, and at a speed you can play.

Do the "1234" chromatic exercise. That whole solo is just chromatic scale up and down and tremolo picking.
