is it normal to take a couple of day/weeks to figure out a solo, get it up to speed and sounding good?
well if anybody can figure out a solo by Satch/Petrucci/Vai/anyone else of that caliber in an hour my hat's off to them
Now officially has too much gear to list

PM me if you want to know about my recording setup
Lol yeah, no kidding, I'm learning the Tender Surrender solo and its already taking me more than a couple days
- G&L Tribute Series Legacy Guitar
- Behringer V-tone GM108 15-watt amp
It completely depends on how good you are and how hard the solo is...could take minutes, could take hours, it could even take months.
Actually called Mark!

If you want it perfect. At least a few weeks. 2 or 3 for me to get a hard solo pretty much down pat.
