Whenever I write a solo, I love having a high powerchord on the G and B string, and bending it, with some distorion to get a really dirty sound. It's great for starting a solo, and finishing one.

I also like to do a Kirk Hammett type lick, and do a triplet penatonic pattern. It sounds great when it is play fast or slow.
