ok whats the best kind of scales to learn for heavy metal, crazy speed solos? cus that would help a ton (im pretty dumb, so be nice lol)
#2
just the good old minor and major scales, pentatonic, throw in some arpeggios... once you have those down just fool around with them, mix them up a bit... you know, actually play guitar

i usually stay around harmonic minor, pentattonic minor, and aeolian minor

Whatever approach you take, don't be afraid to add lots of notes from outside the scale. Symmetrical fingering patterns and minor scales with lots of chromatic passing notes are great for speed. Just don't hold on to any stinkers for too long; make sure your more melodic phrases stay in key.
