Hi. I've been playing guitar for about 3 years now and I mostly play metal. I can play the riffs just fine but I just can't solo. Do you guys have any suggestions on soloing? I would really appreciate the help. Thanks.
modes and scales. mostly aeolian, dorian and phrygian. Look them up. they will greatly help you. also learn lics from youre favorite artists.
Just make random noises with your guitar and say you're influenced by Tom Morello.
BLUES PENTATONIC SCALE. Thats what Kirk uses on most of his solos. Ex. Enter the sandman is in E minor pentatonic, and so is Nothing Else Matters. Most metal songs are going to be in the key of E minor. Work on getting fast and a good wide vibrato.
