Well, the thread's evidentally alive again. I might as well post in it, heh..

Sweeping, for me, is easy. It's the speed picking parts that I have trouble with. In fact, I still can't play any bodom solos even though I practice with a metronome a lot. But as far as the rest of the song goes, out of the songs I've tried to learn, the main melody in Blooddrunk is pretty hard for me and took me a long time to memorize. Follow The Reaper is pretty hard rythmically. Bodom After Midnight is too fast, I can't play that song for shit. And, considering it's one of the first songs I ever learned to play, and I still fuck it up pretty often, the lick where you skip back and forth between all six strings in Are You Dead Yet is pretty hard... I need to practice more. D=

I wouldn't say KTS... maybe Chokehold...

BBT is an easy solo and MOS ... with a bit of practise it's ok. KTS, T,L&S,LDB and a lot of the Blooddrunk solos are harder.

Mos Duel is pretty hard. The main solo isn't hard its just the tab is shitty and written for 2 guitars.

Hmmm... None of them are spectacularly harder than others.

What? Which bar(s) do you mean? I thought my tab is pretty much accurate!

This is a fun thread. I dont/cant play guitar at all - but fool around with drums, but its fun to see what you (prolly quite good) guitar players struggle with and think what is difficult in the COB songs. Yeah I could clearly imagine stuff in KTS are quite hard.

BIG THANX to Conti from here for letting me buy Jaska's stick from him !! I LOVE that stick SO much!1

Kissing the Shadows is generally accepted as being the hardest. I'm not sure what I personally consider hardest though, definately not Kissing the Shadows (as I can actually play it), probably whichever song has the most sweeping in it would be toughest for me... I'm comfortable with 3 string sweeps and with a LOT of practice I can get the 5/6 string sweeps down but it's probably my weakest technique at the moment.

This also makes me wonder which songs you guys think are the easiest ones. I think Are You Dead Yet is probaby the easiest one, overall, that I've tried to learn. And Downfall is pretty easy... Actually, flip those two. Downfall is the easiest, and AYDY is also pretty easy. As far as the solos that I know how to play, I can get the Punch Me I Bleed solo closest to being up to speed.

What do you guys think? Especially in terms of solos?

It's really rather subjective to your abilities as a guitarist and what you define as being well-played. While many guitarists think that slow solos = automatically easier, I've found that many who are arrogant for their zomgspeed don't do the slower more articulate/expressive solos justice at all. Simply being able to ''play'' the notes tabbed out does not equate to good playing. This also applies to fast solos too obviously, however most people are so focused on the speed in itself that they don't realize what they're missing out on. That is one of the major separating factors between guitarists. And so while people will say ''oh I can play this solo and this solo,'' that really doesn't mean shit

No, I agree. But if you can't play the shit up to tempo, one of the most basic elements of music, then what hope do you have for making the rest of it sound good? =)

mask of sanity is more difficult than kissing the shadows by far. I learned KTS from beginning to end. I couldn't handle mask

You can play KTS but you have big problems with 5/6 strings sweeps? You mean you can just play the rythm guitars, or? Because int the solos are 6 or 7 of those sweepings

Pretty much every song till Roope joined the band was easy to learn (the rythm guitars). And for solos... maybe AYDY.

No, the leads, I practiced the solos manically to get those sweeps down but I'm still not 100% comfortable with them, they sound right but I have to really focus on what I'm doing.
With alternate picking I don't really have to think about my right hand at all (or for the most part my left), it just does it. With sweeping I have to really pay attention (especially when learning a new shape or changing the starting place of that shape), so my problem with sweeping lies in improving my muscle memory.

Triple Corpse Hammerblow always gets me, as well as kissing the shadows, though i've got my head around both, they still challenge me.

The only difficulty with downfall solo it's its speed, not everyone can play clear sixteenths at 200bpm.
Or I'm just trying to justify myself for being shit guitarist. (:
