Well since metal is derived from Blues, it shouldn't that hard.

Try messing around with some blues scales.

wrong

i suggest you make sure your familiar with the natural, melodic, and harmonic minor scales. that will help you a lot
try learning some death songs, theyre solos and rythm can be pretty tricky
try some morbid angel and obituary also
and if you want a real challenge, try some tech death like cryptopsy, necrophagist, and quo vadis
Vikings? What Vikings? We are but poor, simple farmers. The village was burning when we got here, and the people must have slain themselves.

i vote diminished.

But anyway, firstly i would say just get used to playing tech death riffs, before soloing.

Pentatonic does not work that well for Death Metal, at least I think so.

Look at some Behemoth, Conquer Alll has a fairly easy solo.

And BTW, rhythym in DM is not that easy, you need a lot of speed, technique and precision.

edit: Try playing Spheres of Madness by Decapitated to see feel what real DM feels like.

Wrong? Lol?

Learn your music. Sure natural, melodic, and harmonic minor are used...but you can't make a whole song out of them. They can be overused.

A lot of death metal has fairly complicated rhythm lol.. I wouldn't say it's easy at all. Either technical left hand stuff (Psycroptic, Decapitated, Necrophagist, etc.) or retardedly quick right hand stuff, (Iced Earth.. not death metal but still) which you will want to be very good at, and have some endurance with if you're going to play live. In many cases the rhythm can be just as hard as the solo's.

Spheres of Madness is a good start like the other dude said. The intro for Human's Dust by Decapitated is great to.
