Re: whats song is you bar of achevement?

I think "for the love of God" was the first "hard" song I tried to learn, but there are plenty of other challenging great songs, like plenty of Eric johnson, paul gilbert, petrucci and govan songs that require quite a bit of skill. Just start by playing what you want to play, and what you enjoy playing, and the skill will come to you, because it is what you enjoy. Don't beat yourself up trying to learn a really hard song that you hate lol!

yea same first pick, learnt it long time ago and recently went though 2 goal songs, scarified and black magic by reb beach. looking for more hard 1's that are pro and goal meterial. looking up vai's km pee du wee and brains may's bohemian rhapsody for chord shifts, thick stuff.

I think they change as you get better.
My first goal as a teenager was to learn all the Zep stuff I could. My next big goal was copping Van Halen, then Moving Pictures by Rush.
Right now my biggest challenge believe it or not is classical and fingerpicking stuff. For me it's super-hard and a huge goal.

As long as you set a goal to hit you'll become a better player just by trying to get there.

I'm too lazy to practice songs I won't play in a live setting. My goal is to have fun while playing. That's the best achievement for me.

For me it would be whatever song gets me the most money from a gig...So if it was Jingle Bells that would be my bar!

Re: whats song is you bar of achevement?

Bucket heads binge or grab was the first song i played all the way through and played it as a school assessment i remember the pride i had and the fun i had ripping out the solo and looking at my teacher pretending i was on stage in front of thousands of people. sounds stupid but my god was it awesome!!!

Re: whats song is you bar of achevement?

I could never pick one song that show cases my bar of achievement, more like an entire album and once i learned all of Passion & Warfare (except "Alien water kiss&Love secrets") and Alien Love Secrets (except demented voice on "kill the guy with the ball") i definitely felt like that was my bar.

But if i had to pick one song it would be either any song of PAW or Juice, i'm very indecisive on this one lol.
