LOL! This is great. My wife was just having this discussion with me yesterday. "You only learn the riffs, and then don't play the song." Another classic example captured in comic. Nice work!

Hehe, there is a lot of truth in these comics ! smile.gif The most horrible thing to say though, as a lead guitarist, is "I can play (for example) the entire Enter Sandman !" without actually knowing the solo ! smile.gif In my opinion, knowing a song's solo ALMOST makes you worthy of knowing the whole song, without knowing the rest of it, as the solo is what's usually the most demanding part of a song...

I guess I sometimes only learn solos and riffs in songs, and when I don't know the rest I improvise/jam... biggrin.gif
