Is there a scale that metal solo's ussually follow?
like im quite new to lead so im trying to grasp the theory behind how to compse solo's
now i understand with blues its mostly just the blues scale in the key your jammin in.
is there a setup like that for metal?

Minor and Pentatonic scales
Dave Mustain has wrote some of the most amazing solos...
That he can't actually play!

ok BGC.... post your melodic control video, i know you can't wait!!!

actually just in case he doesn't post it go to either yahoo or google videos (can't remember which one it is) and google "melodic control" which is an excellent video by ex-megadeth guitarist Marty Friedman about playing leads around chords. Generally though solos tend to stick to the key of the song or one of the modes of the scale played in the song.
