hey guys i need some help and tips on soloing
I really want to solo like thrash metal, so like slash/maidenish
type of soloing. And right now im working on my pinky strength
so i can do triplets in minor pentatonic scales. And for the
pentatonic scale i know all notes to it all over hte fretboard.
I just need some help on what i can improve, or a technique
could practice

Pretty nice backing track.

One thing to remember is to have little rests.
Also, to spice it up, add some notes from outside the pentatonic (like natural minor, harmonic minor, even some middle eastern scales maybe).

Also, learn sweeping, cause sweeping rules.

The best way to improve soloing is to listen to other guitarists and try to listen to their style rather than the notes. After that, the notes will come.

There's a sweeping video in the lessons part of the website.

Just search for "sweep" in the search bar, under lessons.

I came up with this kick ass riff on my ukelele when I was 12. Find out two years later, it was smoke on the water. Got my hopes and dreams killed..

A triplet is 3 notes played in the same beat, at even intervals.

Anyway, for the sweeping thing, it'll open up the possibility of playing not just triplets, but crazy rythm groups like quintuplets (5 a beat), septuplets (7) etc.

Sweeping will also let you play extended fast things.

It's not really necessary for motorhead style soloing...However for shredding, sweeping is a staple, and shred + metal = Happy days (not the show...).
