Sonata Arctica - The End of This Chapter. Definetly not one of the hardest ones out there, but it sounds kickass biggrin.gif

You can tackle the Hotel California solos perhaps, they are not difficult but have many nice bends, and they are long, so they are a nice treat for intermediate player.

Hotel California! forgot about those great one Ivan, those solos are not hard, yet they are awesome, maybe some of the most memorable, But the originals recorded with electric. The ones in acoustic seem harder at least that is what I think.

Hmmm.... How bout smoke on the water? The riff might be the easiest thing ever, but the solos more of an intermediate type thing. There's lots of bends, and there are little bursts of speed throughout, but it's really not that hard.

I spelled my username wrong...I didn't even think that was possible!

Look at the topic for my guitar...
Finished Guitar Build

Gear:
Homemade strat (You still need to look at its topic!)
Squier strat (probably going to get rid of it and get another guitar instead) :)
Line 6 spider amp (not actually used for anything, just acts as a speaker)
Digitech Gnx2 (kind of old, but cheap, and sounds amazing!)

The best song of them, in my opinion ^^
Just a word almost at the beginning, but a powerfull word where grunting really fits in good:

"Do you remember?
Or did it all go in vain..."

Then a bit later:

"You can now have all the things I could never give to you
Look out the window " cest ´moi"..."

Perhaps the solo from Pearl Jam's "Alive". It's pretty long, but doable.

I would say that Stairway to Heaven could be an intermediate solo.

This is the video how one of my ex. teachers plays it.

Solo is on the 5th video.

Don't know why I didn't think of this before, but Guns n' Roses has some of the best Intermediate solos ever, to me Slash was a genius, if you like GnR, check them out.

Don't forget our beloved Kris:

Has his free site www.freelicks.net that breaks down some solos step by step. I originally came to GMC through freelicks.net and always thought that the content there would be expanded here at GMC, but I've noticed GMC doesn't teach any specific solos(Unless there's a hidden menu I'm not seeing). Is there a specific reason for this .

Just curious.

Maybe some Metallica solos. They sound cool but are not too hard. Some of my favorites are the solos from Master of Puppets, Four Horsemen, and One.

That's the one I thought of too. Definitely doable for intermediate.

I think the best intermediate solo for me is Shine on you Crazy Diamonds by pink floyd. Very long, but so many nice licks, pull offs, great bends and slides, vibrato etc. nothing very fast but very epic sounding. Also Another Brick in the Wall part II is very nice.

A bluesier one would be Red House by Jimi Hendrix, love that one too.

Also Sultans of Swing by Dire Straits...I could keep going lol

All you mentioned are great intermediate solos and I would also put them in the category "Essential".

I thought this had to do with copyright infringement issues.
