Red belt spelled backwards is "tlebder", which is not as scary as "redrum." These riffs/parts/concepts are also not so scary. They're hard enough, but at least they won't kill you. Mastering your first multi-position diagonal scales also won't kill you. Interestingly, the average BPM range for Red Belts makes many parts swing towards the ultra smooth, slick and groovy, e.g. - "Under the Bridge" by the Red Hot Chile Peppers, "Sultan's of Swing" by the Dire Straits, and "Get Lucky" by Daft Punk. "Stairway" (sans solo) also ended up in Red Belt, so perhaps it's time you got past the first two measures. "Yes Stairway, un-denied."
