I'm not sure if this goes in this forum, but I need to know what I should learn next. I can play most of the Metallicaish solo without too much trouble. I can one hand tap and sweep pick decently. What should I learn next?

I can do those. Heck, I'm a piano player, legato came naturally.

If you already know all of those, start writing songs and perfect your skills. If you know all of the techniques and you know about improvising, you should be able to play most anything and start writing your own music.

Also, I must say this thread is really aggravating for beginners because it's in the basics section and here you are talking about improvising and sweep picking andwhat not. I say Musician Talk .

Well saying that you can do those things decently tells me that you need to stay with it a little more. You never out practice a technique, meaning you can always become better at it.

The techniques you named are fairly advanced in my opinion(taping and sweeping). How are your more fundamental techniques? Alt picking, strumming, string skipping, hammer ons and pull offs, legato and vibrato.

Pay attention to your bends and vibrato to go from randomly playing fast to actually getting expression out of the instrument.

Ok, yeah, I need to speed up my sweeping, that's mainly what I was thinking. Everything (pulls offs, string skipping) I pretty much got mastered. My lead style is somewhere in between Synster Gates and Angus Young.

Didn't mean to be unhelpful, but as far as techniques go sweeping and tapping are pretty much the top of the pile...you can't pull them off effectively unless you know all the other stuff leading up to them. That being the case, there isn't really anywhere else to go...knowing techniques is only a tiny part of it though, it's knowing how to use them that's important.

Ok, I'm not satisfied, that's why I'm asking what I should learn next.

If you have to ask then you're probably not as good as you think you are.

How about some two-, three- and four fingered tapping? Hard but sounds very cool!

Naw it's not that hard. The hardest part with that for me is keeping good tempo.

Figure out music - make sure you understand everything you play.

I was a classical pianist before I started guitar and bass.
