next week, it will be my half term week (a week off, basicaly), which means i have 7 days to train my ass of at guitar. i wanted to dedicate this week to learn a song, but one that will challenge my skills a lot. i really dont mind what style it (except jazz), but i wanted something technically difficult, but at the same time not a load of sweeps all over the song. i have been playing for 1 year, and can alternate picking decently and have the basics of tapping and sweeping and legato.

any suggestions??

thanks

This should go in the only song thread... and lulz at the "challenge my skills" "dont mind what style...(except jazz)" haha.


Maybe "The Trooper" - Iron Maiden


It's a good song altogether.

He's been playing for a f-ing year. I don't think he's up there with Satch, Vai, Petrucci, and Gilbert.

Surfing with the alien isnt too hard, neither is entrance of the conflagration, spain, and the intro to glasgow kiss is a fantastic workout for all levels

If you could honestly do that after 1 year, then props to you sir. I would play for hours on end (i wouldn't want to eat dinner, ever, because i was practicing) every day and i know damn well i wouldn't be able to play those.
