I want to try and learn to solo all across the neck, not jusst in one position. Anyone know any awesome solos that I could practice this on?

Thanks

Alot of stuff. Almost anything except for Zakk Wylde. Learn the notes on the fretboard if you haven't already done so, then memorize the scales/modes you want to utilize. Then practice improvising up and down the neck.

I wouldnt say that one song could help with this. Most of the solos you'll learn will help with putting all the shapes and licks together fluidly. The thing is you have to know the shapes across the neck to have the solo make sense to you. So my advice is just to learn a shape, learn the shape below or above it, and keep stacking the shapes till you come back to the one you started with (in an octave above or below). So once you have that down the solos will show you how to fluidly move through these areas tastefully and melodically. Atleast thats the way I did it, try it out and see how it goes. Also post a video of you improvising in the audio/video thread to see where you are at with soloing. I'm sure some of the guys can help you out.

learn the hopscotch method....... it's on the lesson page somewhere in UG.....
Tone is all ...... well probably 75%, in your fingers.
The rest depends on your wallet's thickness !!

Keep the faith, baby!!

learn your favorite scale in a bunch of different positions

Everytime I go into the guitar shop and ask for a G-String the shopkeeper always makes that TERRIBLE joke about it not being an underwear shop

So next time I go in I'm gonna ask for a thong

learn ur scales and arpeggios then connect them then i would say learn some string skipping, it helps playin wider intervals rather than sticking to the same scaler runs that everyone uses to achive speed.

I agree it sounds like you should just learn your scales in every position then noodle and things will happen... But first learn them

learn some Yngwie licks, like the ascending intro lick on Arpeggios from Hell.

Or try Beast and the Harlot by Avenged Sevenfold.

I know I'll get flamed for saying that but It's all over the neck. even though its got a big gap.

If you really want to solo all over the neck, you have to use your octaves, and arpeggios.

learn the modes, i did, and it helped a lot. another harder way would be to learn the notes of the fretboard well enough that you can play in whatever key signature you want, that would be harder though.

Dude, don't be such a jerk. that's just my favorite guitarist for the moment. I've already been warned via email about it and it's pretty damn lame I might add.
BOOM!

Well it's simple: http://www.looknohands.com/chordhouse/guitar/index_rb.html
Then you search the scale you want to know, and you learn it. Then you start using it and after a few years you know the most common scales. No use of copying solo's.
