    I recently bought a new electric guitar along with a Korg processor and a 10W amplifier.
    Well, with my acoustic guitar, I was used to playing rythm and small lead parts of various songs.

    The sole purpose I bought an electric is to learn soloing and decent shredding. But now I seem clueless on what to do next, coz I started out with the solo to Hotel California, got frustrated halfway, and am now thinking that I lack in some basic skills.

    What would u all gurus recommend me to do before I feel comfortable playing these solo parts. I have no problem with the riffs of major songs. But its the solo and some interlude that kills me.

    My favourite artists/bands are -

    The eagles
    Poets of the Fall
    The Fray
    Foo Fighters
    Led Zeppelin
    Black Sabbath
    Judas Priest
    Lynyrd Skynyrd
    Linkin Park
    Eric Clapton
    Bon Jovi
    Pink Floyd
    Goo Goo Dolls
    Guns N Roses

    I have also heard some stuff by Steve vai, Joe Satch and Jimi Hendrix, but I think that they'll be pretty tough to learn.

    Any suggestions on where should I begin? How to progress? Any help will be appreciated!
