Adding scale runs to riffs in COB/Yngwie fashion

I'm looking forward to finally getting some guys together and jamming. One of my favorite bands ever is Children of Bodom, and the way he (Alexi) at least in the early days would do these crazy scale runs going into/out of riffs is just crazy. Of course, the same applies for Yngwie, who obviously influenced Alexi. I'm going to be the lead guitarist in a band soon, and I really want to see if I can mix in some wild fills as well. Would it just be to start a major/minor run on the final note of the riff, or what? Or start on a note in the scale of the riff?

As you guys can see, I ain't exactly a theory genius. That said, I hope someone can shed some light on the matter

BTW, learning Rising Force right now, very fill-y

EDIT: This song is full of them, first one being at 0:54


Again at around one minute in:

1st video, Fsharp minor arpeggio, or scale. Take your pick, and shred it.

2nd video - Csharp minor scale. Shred it.

Get good and legato, picking and sweeping.

And your 3nps scale shapes.

Train your ear, and transcribe.

Hehe, thanks! So it's just minor shapes in the right places, if I'm not mistaken?

Yup. Use the shapes to train your ear on the sound of the scale in context (over harmony).

A great tip is just hold one single note over the section your going to play, let your mind (ears!!!)guide you as to how the lick/scale passage should go e.g :ascending, descending, fast, slow, legato, tapping etc. hum out your ideas and this gets easier and easier, its the initial trying out period that can be off putting. you've picked some nice examples so stick with your gut.
