1 year of guitar ... I would say your problem is normal.

You can't have all the stuff those solo's required to be well played (technic stuff etc ... ). I don't think the knowledge of theory is a matter here (It wasn't for me).
There are tons of exercices on this site to improve your technic...

Playing a solo isn't just a technical matter... It's like a story. A solo says something. You've got to feel it to play it right. And I think it's the toughest part of the work.

Hi 7_stringa,

I don't know if it's just me, but I find myself struggling to read/understand your style of writing, and have to re-read your posts.

Nothing against common abbreviations, but we have a lot of visitors that aren't that fluent in English .... I'd be really appreciated if you could write a little clearer.

Warm Regards,

I have an Ibanez but not a 7 string (too expensive for me lol)
And I will have trouble helping you reading note as I can't do it myself very well :(

Libraries are full of books FREE. Most now have inter-library loan systems so you can get books from anywhere. Web sites that will contain instructions on musical notation: www.datadragon.com and www.library.thinkquest.org/13734.

There are a ton of sites on the Internet with instructional material. This site has many, and lessons, and collections of guitar tabs are all over the place on the net.

This is just one of many I found by entering the work tabliture in a search engine: http://www.personal.psu.edu/users/f/p/fpm108/glw/lessons/index.htm

There are hundreds of others. It will be a good idea to learn to read musical notation and tabliture. Pickup some basic musical theory (chord theory, scale constructions and so on.) Every one wants to shred on the second day. Learn these basic things first and you will better understand everything that comes next.

This is another good site that will teach you some licks and theory too.

Get into the how and why.
