Just remember that this isn't guitar hero...there's no levels or unlocks and no rewards for "beating" other people. With the guitar everything new you learn helps you develop, learning "easy" solos is just as valuable as learning "harder" ones.

Very true. But learning "good" solos is infinitely more value than learning "bad" ones, and so it's good to ask for advice on which ones to learn.
And yeah, stairway to heaven.
Talking about Zep, Communication Breakdown's a great solo, might be just a little tough, but it's the same sort of length and style.

True, but there's not many "bad" solos out there - however there seems to be a misguided belief out there that you have to be constantly learning harder things to get better and it's not the case.

There aren't very many bad solos on records though.

Fair enough.
There are ones that wouldn't benefit his playing much, but I digress. It IS hard to go wrong, because learning a new solo or even the whole song is NEVER a bad thing, so long as you're using the right fingering and not developing habits, which is a different matter entirely.

Yeah - even learning a shit solo is going to help a bit as long as you make the effort to learn it properly

Then you have a massive jenga tower of pure rock! <3

Try Godzilla by Blue Oyster Cult. Greatest riffs thread reminded me. Great solo, with only one particularly challenging phrase. But the tabs you'll find for the fast bit aren't great. I'll put the RIGHT way to play the fast bit up if I find time.
