Well, I feel like I'll be the eternal begginer but anyhow, I'm totally bored about easy songs, easy solos, bla bla...post some killer grinding bastard songs, not necesarilly fast but that require a lot of technique, skill and dedication. I'm fed up with easy stuff, I need a challenge.

I really mean special songs...don't just post some heavy metal song with fast power chords...that doesn't qualify as hard to play. It doesn't have to necesarilly be metal, if you guys agree. Thanks!

edit: I myself prefering to tickle the bass (*silly giggles) and being an ocassional strummer wouldn't mind some bitchey bass recomandations (: So I'll make one myself since I started this topic, for the bass:

Opeth - Advent. I'm not really an Opeth fan, but their songs are mighty good exercises from my point of view. Advent isn't really a very fast or complicated song, but has a lot of intricate thingies that require a lot of attention to sound right. It really helps the fretting hand.

It must be "Through The Fire And The Flames" by DragonForce...see that Danny Johnson made a world record in Guitar Hero III playing exactly this song

it is so hard, that even DragonForce themselves are unable to play it...

That's really the most difficult song I have ran into...

No way my friend.. What you've seen in that song's guitar solo?
Let say the solo is alright and the song is a masterpiece, but it's not the hardest song to play for sure.. At least it seems it's not.. Because I never played electric guitar..

Well I think it kinda goes without saying that anything by MAB, Buckethead, Satriani, Gilbert, etc is going to be just plain insane.

Anything from Gorguts' Obscura or From Wisdom To Hate, or Necrophagist, for technical difficulty.
But for feel I would say some Hendrix (Red House, obviously, Hey Joe, Purple Haze) or Led Zeppelin (No Quarter, Black Mountain Side; Stairway is easy to play physically, but to capture the right emotion is very difficult).

Not really except for the solos. The rhythm parts can be nailed with a bit of practise.

The intro to Heart's Crazy on You, amazing. And for the bass, they Rancid's Maxwell Murders with the solo that should be a challenge for anyone.

A friend of mine, who studied Classical Guitar, has gone on record stating that this particular song on Classical is considered to be the most difficult piece to ever play on Guitar. Enjoy! It's called Koyunbaba.

Hopefully your question isn't just limited to Metal, though. If so, my bad.

Also, this is what he told me, not him. So I can't really refute any arguments in favor of a piece that is more difficult to play (I play Drums and Bass; I suck at guitar).

I'd imagine Dance of Eternity by Dream Theater would be very, very challenging.

As to the most difficult song? Ideally you'd be looking for a song with a mixture of extreme speed, technicality and duration.

Apart from Technical shit, and pointless technical only riffing/soloing, If you wanna build muscles and/or get your right hand injured, I'd recommend a very challenging song :
Kreator - Love Us or Hate Us

In metal pretty much everything in the technical departement. Aside from metal I'd say Buckethead.
