I'm a rhythm guitarist who knows virtually nothing about solos, so I was wondering what techniques are used in solos by bands like Green Day, Offspring, and Blink 182. I mean, whenever I look for for techniques I always get "useful for blues/bluegrass/heavy metal/classic rock/whatever". I just wanted to see if there was punk stuff out there.

billie joe seems to have started playing some lead guitar recently- i haven't analysed it or anything but it sounds like pretty standard bluesy-classic-rock type stuff.

some of the other stuff might have more like lead melodic bits rather than solos. I guess that might be punk.

I'll have to put the Classic T models on my to-try list. Shame the finish options there are Anachronism Gold, Nuclear Waste and Aged Clown, because in principle the plaintop is right up my alley.

Presumably because the CCF (Combined Corksniffing Forces) of MLP and Gibson forums would rise up against them, plunging the land into war.

Yeah most punk solos are just angry, pissed off blues solos that got a little ragged around the edges

First off, you have to throw technique and discipline out of the window, and then you just rip blues scales.
