Ok, so I want to learn how construct better solo's and I'm sick of using pentatonic and minor scales, so I was wondering, what techniques, scales and modes etc. should I learn. I think sweep picking would be one of them, I like metallica and trivium's sort of style.

Arpeggios: sweeped, alternate picked, string skipped, the lot of 'em. Plenty of tapping with those guys too so don't forget that.

well you should start out with a sort of low string bending

BAWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWwwwwwWWWWwWWWW sortof noise

then just when it starts to get higher go for a massive whammy session like

BOOOOOOOWWWWWWWWWW WWWWWWWWWWWWWWWEWEEEEEEEEEE IIIIIIIIWEEEEEEEEEEEEE

then start picking pentatonic licks like a madman

WIDDLEWIDDLEWIDDLEWIDDLEWIDDLEWIDDLEWIDDLEWIDDLEWIDDLEWIDDLEWIDDLEWIDDLEWIDDLEWIDDLEWIDDLEWIDDLEWIDDLEWIDDLEWIDDLEWIDDLEWIDDLEWEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE

then a huge bend like

BWOWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE

then go all slayer trem squeals with a

WHHHHEEEEEEEEEEEEEIIIIIIIIIIEEEEEEEEEEEEEIIIIISLKDHFKUHSBGKHSDFLH

then finish it off with a huge sweep tapping run at twice the speed of light like

Ok, I'll check out what y'all said,thanks, and about all the whammy bar noises, my guitar has a tuneomatic so it looks like I'm doing rythym for this one
But seriously, I will check out the techniques.
