Hey there.
I wanted to show you my own 40th birthday challenge : to be able to play all the songs from the amazing 70s Scorpions album "Taken By Force".
The main difficulty here, is there was someone called Uli Jon Roth playing lead guitar in this band back in the day....

Let me know what you think ;)

Hell yes! My favourite Scorps record. Nice work, learning a full album would be a pretty intense way to challenge yourself. I started doing that with Manilla Road's The Deluge and stopped about halfway through when I got to some of the murkier riffs I couldn't decipher easily.

I went straight to "We'll Burn The Sky" and "Sails of Charon", naturally. Nice work dude. Those parts ain't easy--I still have't mastered the solo to Sails of Charon yet. My only note would be to try and get a wider, sexier vibrato going. Uli's vibrato is massive and definitely tough to match.

You should pop some more videos of yourself in the Shred Thread here!

Thanks for your feedback. I do appreciate your kind comment.
You should glance at 'Your Light' and 'Ive Got To Be Free' as well, as they're quite difficult to play, especially 'Your Light', that gave me the same pain in the ass as Sails Of Charon. Given that i only record myself in one-shot (no video editing shit), its final solo was VERY painful to learn & play properly, even if there's no real 'shred' like Sails Of Charon provides.
But yeah, to learn all this was an accomplishment :)
