Hello GMC.

I would not call my self a beginner nor a pro.

Something between these two stages, so:

Do you guys know some medium level songs that would be god for practice?

Thanks ^^

What styles do you play?, If it is rock, most stuff on the radio is easy and fun to play.

Oh, I am so sorry, I forgot that part.

Well. I like Metal, Rock and a litte funk, but i thought that the most metal songs are quite hard to play.

Asfor metal songs i would suggest maybe Primo Victoria by Sabaton or Night of passion by The Poodles. They are fun and easy to play

I think you could try playing some Extreme songs. Nuno Bettencourt has some awsome rhythm guitar and they are not quite simple but maybe you can handle it.
Beatle songs are always good, like Blackbird.
And of course you can always play radio stuff like Linkin Park or some songs that have simple fifth chords.

I would you suggest you to pick a lot of easy songs, and one hard song that you really really really like. For the easy songs, and the level you said, I would try Nirvana, The Offspring, U2, metallica (just rhythm part), black sabbath...

The hard song you practice just a little bit every day. Very slowly. It's gonna take time, but this will take you to another level. cool.gif It is important you just love the song so that you don't lose motivation.

Here is me playing sultans of swing, in July 2007, which was waaaay beyond my level when I started practicing it at November 2006.
Not perfect, but one can really see the improvement wink.gif

If you want to know, the second solo I could not do anything faster than 40% speed in the beginning...

And by the way, any song is easier to learn and practice if you have guitar pro.

I found Faith No More songs to be great practice many years ago. Especially the song Epic. It's got great rhythm-practice, and the solos are doable if you give it enough practice.

Godsmack has some simple and fun stuff! I stand alone is alot of fun. Actually this topic completely reminded me of Godsmack.. they are awsome smile.gif Anyways Iron Maiden has a bunch of great tunes that are pritty easy and fun. Aces High is my favorite by Iron Maiden. If you want a bit more of a challenge play stuff by Lamb of God.

One thing I love about forums like this, always finding new bands! biggrin.gif I've never heard of these two.
