Question New licks and riffs

So I'm trying to broaden my guitar playing horizons, as I've picked up on the fact that I pretty much only play blues right now.

So can anyone makes lists here of different main riffs and solo licks from a variety of many genres to suggest I have a go at learning? No matter how famous, hard or what style.

Thanks in advance

You should learn the major scale, and try to improvise over canon rock cuz theres a lot of room to improvise. You can find the backing track at guitarbackingtrack.com. Canon Rock is in D Major or B minor so the scale would be D E F# G A B C# D. It might not sound good at first, but actually playing over something helps you improvise better, and you really don't have to know the song, so practice and mess around with the D Major scale over Canon Rock.

why does everyone suggest canon rock it`s a boring melody

you say you only play blues licks, but what bands do you actually listen to from any era, and who do you idolise.

Improvising is about creating your OWN coloring to the texture, if you find your own coloring to be boring, ok.
