Hey guys i've been working on alot of improv soloing lately and one main difficulty i find when soloing out of scales is not knowing the notes of the guitar off the top of my head. Sure i can figure it out if i take a second which is too long when playing metal and i know about 20% off the bat but i wanna get that too like 90-100 percent but i really don't know how to go about doing that. Thanks guys.
Try this it might help.
do you know the modes?
Play major scales starting at various points up and down the neck. Say the notes out aloud or in your head as you play. You'll pick up the notes as you practice more. It'll also just be good exercise.
Use the guitar techniques section, please.
