How can I solo like CC Deville,Warren DeMartini,Michael Schenker and all the other 80's guys?The kind of stuff that's really melodic and kinda major sounding.I know pentatonics but it ends up sounding like Slash or something,more blusey than i'm looking for.I know it's cheesy stuff but it's impressive and looks really fun to play.
Guitars are like voices... only with distortion...

Deville and Schenker use a lot of blues stuff, so just study their playing and "borrow" some licks to see how they make it sound more 80s than bluesy.

For technique, look through technique threads in the shred forum and run a search. You should be able to find shred techniques without much trouble.
