Hi, I have been playing guitar for 10 months now and I have been learning Whole Lotta Love and Black Sabbath since last 2 week and I can play both between 50-75% the original speed. I just want to know which bands' materials should I learn in order to develop both my songwriting skills and my technique?

My favorite bands are: Deep Purple, Rainbow, W.A.S.P, Sabbath, Manilla Road, Saint Vitus, Pentagram, Led Zeppelin, Scorpions, Judas Priest, MSG etc.

Cheers!

Oh, those are really good songs to learn your rudiments from already. Learn more Priest and Zep and all the Sabbath you can, both riffs and solos. Once you nail these, you will have a foundation much stronger than many guitarists already. Focus not on speed but on groove and feel, these bands are where you learn that stuff.

Maybe go for Doctor, Doctor next, along with War Pigs, Temple of the King, and Victim of Changes. Learn as many Judas Priest songs and guitar solos as you can, they're immensely helpful.

Thanks. Judas Priest is actually my all time favorite band. I absolutely worship them!

Well there's no problem then! Their stuff isn't super difficult by any means but you should focus on getting the feel and groove correctly, as much as the notes.
