Hmmmmm -

I think the first solo I ever learnt was happy birthday on the high E string!!! LOL!

Seriously now...I think the first 'extensive'
solo I sat down and set myself to learning was Randy Rhodes' "Revelation (Mother Earth)". I had been playing for about three or four years and really loved this solo. I practised it everyday for like 2 months and it never came together, so I just gave up... I'm like that, I've never really learnt a solo at one pop but this was the first I really worked towards getting right.

About half a year later, I was jamming with my mates when I started playing it and it just flowed dude...straight out of me. I was stoked!

Peace -

How's about the solo to Police Truck by the Dead Kennedys, eh? That'll take about 2 minutes to figure out... It's really easy, but I enjoy playing it for some reason

my first solo was "all i want" by offspring.
... and that's all I have to say about that.

Mine was the solo to Steve Vai's "The audience is listening,". Yeah, right! Actually I used to be a total Metallifreak, so the first solo, or solos' I should say, was Sanitarium. To this day I still think that is a great song w/ good leads.

I'm off like a herd of turtles in the moonlight!
Ain't nothin' but a Gear thang, baby!

My first solo was You shook me all night long
by Acdc. i'm playing guitar for 2 years
but never managed to learn solo till this
which i learned 2 months ago.
Usualy it's more fun to improvise the solos
"They think im crazy..
but i know better.
It is not I who am crazy.
It is I who am mad.."

Kind of like bofatron, mostly I've concentrated on learning a few key riffs and improvising, and usually soloing along with the recording. I know tads of solos here and there, but the first solo I learned note for note would be Stairway To Heaven, I guess because it's kind of seen as a "right of passage" between rock-guitarists.
