I've been goin' round and roudn about this, and i thought i would ask you fine folks

what are some cool licks, that you can use while improvising, like, the cool, hammer on / pull off stuff, across multiple strings, or cool, but simple legato type phrases, stuff thats common in classic rock soloing, and 80s metal sometimes ( Kirk hammet, anyone? )


hope this made some kind of sense

there's a kirk hammet video on here somewhere. A dude shows you a bunch of Kirky's signature licks and phrasing styles.

EDIT:

Here, there's three of them:

look up Kristofer Dahl's lessons on Kirk Hammett style guitar... i would put the links, but i don't feel like finding them... especially the one on KH style tapping... the tapping is actually quite simple once you get it down, and i do it all the time while improvising

The morning will come
In the press of every kiss
With your head upon my chest

Where I will annoy you
With every waking breath
Until you, decide to wake up

I dunno if it's the kind of thing you're looking for, but this is a variation on the sort of thing Kirk Hammett does all the time that I picked up listening to Marty Friedman. Sounds very cool played quickly, you might recognise this exact lick from Tornado of Souls:

I like the solo from What I Got by Sublime. Not exactly metal, but it is classic.
It's difficult to win unless you're bored.
