Solos are only as easy as how well you can play.Playing easy solos wont make you a better player.Looking at the music your into your quite like me. Why dont you choose a solo from those bands you like and break it right down into smaller parts. That way your not learning easy solos but rather progressing as a player as you learn the solos you know you really want to be able to play.[br]

I don't believe there are any easy solo's as such. They all have there own degree of difficulty or technique to learn to do them justice, otherwise it's just a run of notes. I believe much more in how you play it, if you put everything into a solo it will sound good, i've heard solos with only 4 or 5 notes that sound so much better than a shredder just running up and down the neck!!!![br][br]

The solo from She sells sanctuary is very easy even for a beginner, infact it doesnt get much more basic than that one

The solo's from Mike U2 DVD are easy.. they are short and beautiful. They complement the songs but are easy to practice on their own too for fun.[br]
[br]
Here are some examples:[br]
[br]
The solo from One[br]
The solo from Sunday Bloody Sunday[br]
The solo from Vertigo[br]
The solo from Pride[br]
[br]
The total time of each of the solos is probably about a minute. [br]
[br]
U2 is one of the easiest bands to learn solos from as they are just part of the songs and not songs made for soloing.[br]
[br]
That is the U2 songs on Mike's DVD (U2 in general has many complex songs that have a lot of soloing too)[br]
[br]
Get this DVD you won't regret it. It is a great introduction to hands on soloing.[br][br]

For simple solos look at the likes of Green Day, Nirvana, Foo Fighters etc. They don't come much easier.

Here is the thing as far as I am concerned Joseph W...it is whatever solo works for the song!!![br]
[br]
I remember reading an interview with Gary Moore back in the 80's where he blasted the solo for [br]
";Oh Sherry"; by Steve Perry as the worst solo he ever heard...now this is a simple 80's pop love song[br]
and the solo was performed by Waddy Wachtel who has appeared on hundreds if not thousands[br]
of 70/80's ";southern california"; songs....it is just a series of unison bends that a beginner guitarist[br]
could do (but didn't write)... it worked for the song...[br]
[br]
There is a later 90's interview with Moore that when he was reminded of his comments, he backtracked[br]
and admitted it worked FOR THE SONG!!! (he was now into his slow bend blues phase????)....[br]
[br]
Old musician's joke goes: ";How many guitarists does it take to change a light bulb?? Just one, but a[br]
ROOMFUL to stand in the back with their arms crossed saying they could have done it better?!?!?!?";[br]
[br]
ok Joseph W. my rant is over...now to help you...[br]
[br]
If you like the Doors, almost all of Krieger's stuff is reasonable to learn (his phrasing is quirky but it works)..if you[br]
like Queen, ";Crazy Little Thing"; is easy enough, fun to play, and LickLibrary has lessons for it....[br]
[br]
Anyway, a lot of Danny Gill's ";technique/theory"; DVDs are great for relearning phrases and Danny and [br]
Micheal Casswell do a great job in the song lessons of WHY something works in the song...[br]
[br]
Hope all this rambling helps buddy....[br][br]
