I guess starting off with a Les Paul from day 1 is handy then for me. I've got a crazy amount of resources to teach myself incl. Metal Method & Rock House Method guitar courses to study! I'm combining these with some Lick Library DVDs to learn some Guns N' Roses & Metallica as I progress. (I agree with you -the online resources e.g.- YouTube, are cool too!) If I'm honest, Slash' solos in November Rain are what inspired me to finally take that leap & get my Les Paul ...so those solos in November Rain would have to be my favourites! ...I've realised that may be a little way off in terms of my initial grasp though, so have begun with learning Metallica's Enter Sandman as my first bit of actual music to learn!
Well, the LP's neck is fairly thick comparing to my previous guitar so I need to get used to it. You should try youtube lessons if you don't have a teacher - they're pretty good to get the basics. You should learn some solo in no time ;D Try Californication or Livin Lovin Maid!
Hey -Jak sie masz! -seems we both share similar tastes ...Les Paul flametops in Vintage Sunburst & appreciators of the genius of Slash! I'm completely new to the forum & to the guitar ...& just can't wait to be able to play my first solo!!! (all in good time!) ...All the best mate! (-How are you getting on with your relatively new Les Paul?)
