Guitar Lessons: Any Ideas For Songs That I Could Play..?

I’ve been playing guitar for a while; it’s been about two years now. At the end of every lesson, my guitar teacher always asks me if there are any songs that I would like to learn, but I really don’t know what to tell him, because I think the songs I like would probably be a little too advanced for me to play.

I like mostly rock and metal bands, like Trivium and Avenged Sevenfold, etc. The only thing is, I’m not sure I’d be able to play some of that stuff just yet, because the solos can be kinda tricky.

The best things that I have been able to play all the way through, so far, have been Critical Acclaim by Avenged Sevenfold, and Hand of Blood by Bullet For My Valentine.

Any suggestions would be much appreciated. Thanks.

    Ember To Inferno
    Poison, The Knife, Or The Noose
