"Smells Like Teen Spirit".

But my first COMPLETE song came long before that, which was "Don't Fear the Reaper" by Blue Oyster Cult.

I played the rhythm behind the solo.

bass solo on my generation.

Me dos. How cool. Oh and like an evenings worth of practice?
Smells like Teen Spirit - Nirvana, because it was basically the vocal melody transposed. Then I learned Blind Mellon's "No Rain" solo, and I still **** up on the last part.

EDIT: I also learned the six note solo to Jumper by Third Eye Blind pretty early on... I just feel like a douche when I play that one though.

Get him into blues. Lyrical depth-not so much. But it is groovy and it is black people's music so if he doesn't enjoy then he is not a true black person.

Ain't talking 'bout love. decent song

EDIT: damn it, what are the chances?

The Solo in Not Enough by Our Lady Peace.

Quote by MarshmallowPies
I snapped my high E once and sliced my finger open, so I can only assume snapping the low E would put me into a coma or something.
Half Shitfaced by The Queers
if you can even call that a solo. I haven't played it in a long time but it's all on the 'B' string and is pretty easy so I should be semi decent at it. It honestly took me like 3 hours to learn it, I was pissed it took so long.
Mine was Train Kept a Rollin' by Aerosmith. Followed by Purple Haze by Hendrix.
I can do it allll night long.

...modes and scales are still useless.

Oh yeah, and if guitar hero got you into the guitar? you're really playing for the wrong reasons.

there is no wrong reason to play a guitar, except for world enslavement and extermination of certain races, but those guys never make it big anyway.
I Wanna Be Sedated. lol

Ah but seriously, the first *proper and decent* solo I can remember doing half well well was Don't Fear The Reaper, til then it was rhythm.

Took a while learning it, but it was the first and I was proud of the fact I managed it

The first FULL solo I learned was to Welcome Home by Coheed and Cambria and it probably took a month to learn for me.
