im practicing guitar and i need myself a really slow solo that still sounds like a decent rock solo. kind of like smells like teen spirit, which is slow but still awesome. please help. ive seen the songs in the solos for beginners thread and i have listened to the ones i want to learn on my ipod and they go really fast and i cant play them.

If you want to learn the faster ones, start off slowly and do the solo bit by bit until you've mastered that section, then piece them (all the sections) all together.

well, try slowing the solo's right down and playing them with a metronome at like 50 bpm and gradually increase the speed. it's actually the only way to improve speed and it's all anybody will ever tell you.

as for slow solo's:
kaider chiefs - ruby
green day - holiday

a lot of deep purple solo's start off slow and build up, so they might be good to check out if you feel like playing some proper solo's

can't think of any others, but if i do i will repost

gdgd, you're learning the way of UG
you can get a decent metronome for £15 ($30 if you're in america i believe), and it's a worthwhile investment..otherwise, download powertab software, make loads of blank bars and set the tempo at the top, then just play it...dodgy sort of a metronome, but it'll work.
