Hi, me and my band have just recently written our first song (just the riffs at the moment but we are working on vocals and solo). I need to write a solo but I know totally nothing about theory. I was wondering if anyone could help me write it. I would like a medium paced part (working up and down scales, need 2 parts because we are doing a little solo each) and then two finger tapping parts (very simple but sounds quite good). I know enough to maybe do the scale part but I dont have a clue how to do any sort of finger tapping in key. The riff goes A-F-G-A-C-G. Thankyou, any help would be much appreciated

I still don't get why people ask other people to write their songs and solos for them. That is the point, your song should be YOURS!!! Anyways, to tap in a key just keep your left hand finger down on a fret and just tap notes up and down the scale you are playing in. Hope that helps.

my advice would be to jam with ur m8s and just see if u can accidentaly make something kool, thats what my band does n we've written 5 songs from it.

Im not asking for people to write it. That would be insane lol. I just need some tips on how to write solos, because I dont really know how scales work or anything. Thanks anyway for the help. Oh and the person above your post - get a life.

i agree with metalzeppelin, write one of your own, and it might not be that good, but it will be YOURS

I could have banned all of you for that, either read the rules of the forums, or just leave, next time I'll ban you.
Filth, pure filth... That's what you are.
