    Default Fastest solo you have ever done on an electric guitar

    So what was the fastest solo you ever played on your electric guitar? For me, I played chapter four by avenged sevenfold and I played the solo. That was sorta fast.
    How about everyone else?

    Bohemian Rhapsody-Queen. The begining isn't fast, but it gets faster gradually..

    But I can't do that many solos. I rather make my own when my band covers songs, for example "For Whom The Bell Tolls" by Metallica, or "Emerald" by Thin Lizzy. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img]

    I couldn't tell you. Because I improvise on almost every other song, I just hear what key is the solo in and just play whatever I can.

    I do that a lot too, because sometimes, I can figure out the exact beats on certain parts. So normally, the only time I can learn something complete is if someone sits me down and shows me... [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/brickwall.gif[/img] lol jk

    Mister Crowley rules... do you guys know that that guitar solo was a improvisation? Randy made that solo while he was playing and recording.. and he did it at first..

    Aren't most solos improv anyway? Well, except parts of em...like intros to the solos and bridges and stuff. But most of a solo is improv.

    well you have to get a clear concept of the solo. the best solo i've written i spent several minutes on the intro alone, and practiced the solo several several times so i knew what to do. but past that it was all improv.

    That is a very well constructed solo it very well may be.

    Sure is. That solo had to be planned out. Too well constructed.

    The solo Criss Oliva does on Savatage's "Conversation Piece" is a masterpiece of speed and precision, carefully constructed. I can play that, even though it is wicked fast and hard as hell. Lots of different scale and octave changes.

    You are a master at guitar if you can play that solo, or any other Criss Oliva solo for that matter

    I don't solo all that much. But, I can play the Paranoid solo, the Thunderstruck intro, etc. I've also written a few solos. My true talent for gutiar isn't in soloing, it's in my speed. My friend William says I sound like Slayer when I play (depending on what I play of course).

    This Is The Fastest Solo I Know How To Play, And It Took Several Embarresing Tries And Months Of Studying It To Get It Right. How He Was Able To Play This Live And Make It Sound Exactly The Same Way Is Astounding.

    Mr. Crowley is basic minor shapes and pretty simple. Randy Rhoads worked out almost all of his solos. Stairway to Heaven had three solos, all improvised and Jimmy chose his favourite and added the slides. Now working on the Song Remains the Same. Not that fast, but tricky enough.

    Right now,the fastest solo I can play,is the first solo in the song Speed Of Light by Stratovarius,it's actually a keyboard solo but I transcribed it on my guitar.Also the fastest song I can play right now is Wolf & Raven by Sonata Arctica.

    I do a lot of solos. Mr.Crowley is a toughie so be proud if you can play it. I play A LOT of the Iommi solos, I cando most from first album into Born Again, where Iommi starts getting really difficult.

    Mr. Crowley and Over the Mountain right now. I used to be able to do the Trapped Under Ice beginning solo by Kirk Hammet but I got bored with it and forgot. I also know Dime's Rise solo note for note. Dime's stuff is probably the most difficult.

    I think one of the best things about Dime was his tight, tight, tight tone.

    Not just his tone. Everything about his playing was very tight, and very precise.
