    I couldn't repeat any solo note for note if my life depended on it, not even one of my own.

    Help is on its way - Little River Band, and I'm not ashamed to admit it! David Briggs is an incredible tasty guitarist

    In 1982, I had only been playing for 2 years and had just started taking lessons at a music store. Randy Rhoads died, and Guitar Player magazine came out with an issue devoted to him....In this issue was a transcription of the "Flying High Again" solo in regular MUSICAL NOTATION, No TAB !!! I didn't read music, but my teacher did, and even though I didn't have the chops yet for Randy's stuff, my teacher was like "What the hell? I'll write it out for you!"......not in tab, but in a system where he would write the fret/string in numerals......I never really got it as fluid sounding as I would have liked, but I did nail the tapping part at the end of the solo.......To this day, I can count the complete solo's I've learned on one hand! I'm just not patient in that regard......I like learning licks, but not complete solos

    "Lady" is one of my favorite ballads, but when I youtubed it, I'd never seen a band w/ so many guitarists haha....I think I saw 4! Kinda like The Outlaws......Great solo though.! If you can vocally "sing" a solo, then you know it's good!

    KISS: Love Gun, solo starting at 2:18.
    A great introduction to pentatonics.

    It’d be something easy like Supersonic by Oasis.

    That fast lick in that song is tough the one towards the end while bending notes fast as well, even after learning Shawn Lane stuff for 3 years i found that one hard, it took a while to get it i nearly quit on it a few times, bending fast is never easy for me and getting the speed and timing right.

    The ones i learnt note for note were the two in Maggie May and the outro, and The Rocker one by Thin Lizzy, i started on them after around 3 months playing and with the last one i nearly quit the guitar a few times was very hard in places.

    One of my favorite solo’s and I’m still trying to learn that... There are a few notes I just cannot figure out.

    I probably don't know any note-for-note precisely. I'm pretty close on "Respectable" by the Stones, "You shook me all night long" and "Hard to handle" Black Crowes version.
