Hey guys, I have been playing guitar for about 6 years now. I play Christian metal, and I want to learn my fretboard better. I play in drop C, and play styles like, Becoming the Archtype, Still Remains, Haste the day, Living Sacrifice, etc. I really want to inprove my skills. I just need some advice on how about doing it without paying someone for lessons. I want to learn leads, and to be able to play in a key. And I dont know if it is wrong but I always said to myself I dont want to play other peoples songs. I just dont feel right about it. Someone elses ideas i guess. Anyone give me some advice on how to inprove?

There is no secret formula to get better, it takes one thing and one thing only. PRACTICE! Play that damn guitar, branch out from just playing ´Christian Metal´ learn the blues or something.

As for leads, learn some scales and improvise. Soloing in a certain key usually involves taking the first chord from the progression e.g A and then soloing in that key. There should be some Theory columns somewhere on this site.

no, not the hardcore forum, maybe the musician talk forum.
you could get better advice there
