So the title basicly describes it, whats the hardest song YOU can play and how long have you been playing for. I have been playing for one and a half years and the hardest i can play right now is I'm alright by Neil Zaza smile.gif

That song is fun to play, I've been playing a year and a half and the hardest song I can play is out of the ashes by Symphony X but just to tell all of you guys. I'm quickly straying from metal. I'm going indie rock for some reason : mellow.gif Well, I'll talk to you later people

This song "Green Robot" by my previous band Artifex - is one of the most tricky I have done - I could barely pull it off. Odd time signature etc. blink.gif smile.gif

This is a very difficult question to answer in many ways.
When you are learning to play a song, its usually very difficult, and most give some problems and challenges.
But when you can play a song and you have been practicing it for ages - they become "relatively" easy and are no longer hard to play!!
It took me a long time to Learn Pink Floyds "another brick in the wall" and it also took a long time to learn to play what seems now ridiculously simple "Sweet home Alabama" but each has had different challenges to overcome.
I have found that the more I play, the less difficult other songs become. The challenge now is to find something "motivational", something that makes me still want to learn to play.
My Personal challenges now are to learn other things that will enhance my play such as playing with others or to collaborate with someone else to create a complete song with Drums, bass and guitars all together. I think that would be for me the hardest song to play !!! (and I dont even have a clue how to get started on it)

You said it Fretdancer!
I suppose some of the finger picking I do would be very hard for a non finger picker, but they are not hard tunes.
Kris, you play faster than I can hear!
This song took me a couple weeks of practice, first figuring out the harmonized guitar part. I'm playing both parts at once, supposedly two guitars were used on the original. It took me two weeks to get it up to speed, which is still abot 10BPM slower than the orginal.

hardest song I can play is the acoustic version of "Neon" by John Mayer, check it out on youtube sometime. It's in drop C, I can't improv as well during the solo but it's a passable version, hardest part of this song after figuring out the picking/thumb slap technique is getting it up to tempo, took me 3 weeks off an on to just get the verse section down. I've been playing 18 months...

Probably Far Beyond The Sun by Malmsteen, I've only memorised like 3/4ths of it though.

I am sorely lacking in repoitoire.....

I'd say "Never Going Back Again" a fingerpick song from Fleetwood Mac Rumours is the hardest thing I can play... or "Over the Hills and Far Away by Zeppelin.... which seems to give some people trouble or maybe the Pride and Joy riff ...

Right now it is bringing even the most basic 1-3-5 5 string D shape Arpeggio up to speed for sweep picking - or anything Pentatonic even approaching what the guys around here are playing.... (I'm 70 bpm on sixteenth triplets sad.gif

Kris, that is a tune!! Excellent!

Did, you print any cd's with Artifex?

ON TOPIC - Mines probably Far Beyond The Sun: Yngwie Malmsteen which I am mainly just perfecting techniques...

or

Spit on Your Grave - Sinergy because I sweat alot on stage and have to really consentrate to keep the picking tempo and rythm in check whilst my hands get wetter and wetter and the pick starts to try and niggle outta my grip towards the end.

We normally finish with this song because my head goes numb after playing it blink.gif

I can't say I'm finished yet, I'm done with about 80% of the song though and through.
Over the hills and far away-Led Zep. If anybody else can play this song, can you tell me if it is hard
or not. I don't think I know.
