Electric Guitars/Easy solos for a beginner?

This is the easy stuff.  I'm sure there are others.  For the solos try these, {even if it takes 5-6 years to learn}.  I thought the best way is to let you sample "some" of how it started for the 1980's.

Limelight - Rush

Looks that kill - Motley Crue

Ain't talking about love - Van Halen

Lucky Ones or Hot girls in love- - Loverboy

We're not gonna take it - Twisted Sister

Don't close your eyes - Kix

Aleah - Don Iris

Rock Me - Great White

Look into some early Def Leppard, find the tunes with easy sounding solos.

......I forgot something very important.  Some of the above mentioned tunes will have guitar tunings that are not standard tuning.  Some will be E standard, some will be lowered to E flat, and I know one tune requires the guitars to be tuned a full step to D.  If you as a guitar player do not understand what all this means you'll need to find help so that it can be explained to you.

Guitars and cats make life so much better. Playing the guitar is a wonderful thing, fixing you guitar is not that hard. I have played since I was a kid and started to fix guitars and the other things that needed repair. I still repair guitars for friends and myself and do enjoy it. I rebuild old guitars to their former condition, all amps and music gear. That the mystery out of where and when a guitar was made. The value of it and the difference between junk and a guitar you can grow old with. Ask me things and have some fun.


The fascination with electric guitars is the top for me. I fix amps, wiring and put the things that fall off back on. The way to really set a guitar up and make it a player. Buying a guitar is an art, and good amps that will get out that tone we all look for, Zen guitar and amplifier is a way to approach it. Better is no worry ask an expert.
