    Yeah I just learn songs too :rolleyes:
    Well I mean like if someone says play so and so chord I cant do it I can only just remember the names of the strings. I know the names of about 5 chords.

    I want to learn but I'm too lazy really.

    Lynyrd Skynyrd - Freebird
    unfortunately I've never heard Freebird before, but I got Eruption somewhere.

    10 minutes later:
    ok just digged around my mp3s and found Eruption. It's just 6 minutes of mindless soloing - seriously it's not even a song, and you must be kidding me to try to work out a 6-minute IMPROVISED solo! If you want me to make my OWN 6 minute solo equivalent to that one, then please say so

    I hope you realise Van Halen is more or less improvising i.e. he is pretty much playing the solo completely randomly but within various scales.

    I want an actual "song" to work out and play where there are lyrics and picking would be nice too.

    Eruption is a minute and a half and isn't improvised on their album. Though he does improvise when playing it live I think.

    nah i'm not saying it's 'easy' (i think it's ok - I did offer to do one), i'm just saying its an improvised solo, and seriously it'll take ages to work out and perfect, and therefore it will be VERY VERY boring. It's like recording a person randomly dancing about on stage for ages, and then getting a normal or professional dancer to practice and mimic it's exact moves - it's just pointless and not worth it!

    MAster of Puppets - thats MUCH better, but i cant do it rite now my families asleep (and i've just been watchin movies)....tomorrow evening and morning im busy. Ok, how about tomorrow night? oh do u want the WHOLE song - i mean if the verses are repeated then it's no point playing more than one chorus and verse rite?

    Edit: Today night actually hehe it's tomorrow rite now

    weird I got a 6 minute 45 seconds version. If he improvises it during live performance, then isn't the 'so-called' song itself a bit of an improvisation? How many MBs is it? I'll try and download another version

    Great idea, but I've only got a bass, and I really need to learn to play that at some point.
