I've been playing guitar for about 4 years now casually and I'm just starting to finally notice myself improving and I've been trying to learn more songs.
Currently in my repertoire, but not necessarily full songs:
Metallica - Master of Puppets (intro)
Metallica - Enter Sandman (intro)
Metallica - Nothing Else Matters (intro)
Pantera - Cowboys from hell (whole song except solo, just working on getting it up to speed)
3 doors down - Kryptonite (just the intro - it's good chord practice with the Bm)
Killswitch Engage - My Curse (mainly just the riff)
Trivium - Like Light to flies (intro)
As you can see I need to work on learning a full song and playing it at speed with the song.
I've only ever jammed with a band once, and I only have like one other person I know who plays guitar that I play with regularly. I'd love to have more people who could help me out with stuff and play with more.
My goal is to eventually start a crappy rock or metal band, although I don't think I'm fast enough for metal.
