I've been searching for some solo's that are somewhat simple, yet somewhat difficult, and sound REALLY nice. I've searched in songs I like but I listen to a lot of GnR and stuff like that, as well as led zeppelin. I can play the One solo if that gives you any starting point.



Any help is appreciated.

You'll have to forgive me if i'm posting in the wrong areas, not a forum person.

the solo for the rage against the machine song "Bombtrack" is really easy and is fun to play. It's really groove based, along with much of Tom Morello's stuff, provided you have a few effects.

"Bombtrack" doesn't require any pedals. Neither does the song "Freedom"

Both are great.

but where's the fun in that then?

check out the really well known CR bands.

AC/DC, Aerosmith and the darkness all have solos pretty similar in style to gnr.

especially considering you have tapping chops (if "one" is anything to go by), "who made who" and "thunderstruck" by ACDC have some pretty good solo/tapping parts.

so you don't mean the main One solo then.

but still, the majority of the bands i mentioned have similar, not-too-hard not-too-easy solos that should be fine.

Well i've tried acdc solos and i can never play them up to speed OR i can never get the correct guitar tabs.

Aerosmith I've been looking into i can play the intro to dreamweaver and a little bit of the solo.

But thank you for the ideas.

Have u tried the intro solo from Fade to Black or Sanitarium from Metallica
or are they too hard.

I haven't tried them. I played the intro to fade to black and i kinda just stopped.

Sanitarium I haven't touched yet.

stairway is insanely easy

the hole song is easy
the solo- for being a classic
isn't hard at all
unless you are looking for a solo that is so stupid easy you just need to read it to be able to play it, Stairway is easy

practice is good to but
you can master stairway easily
