Try blues pentatonic first. That's usually the way to go when you first start to learn the soloing technique. So, a lot of SRV etc etc...
If you want to learn shred, learn how to solo properly first.

You DID try going slow first right?

You can't shred unless you can flow with your notes. Work on that first, buddy.

And I agree with the blues pentatonic post.

Learn your theory and memorize scales.

After that, you'll be able to solo much better than you can now, you'll just have to work up to shredding speed from there.

We arent magicians. We can't snap our fingers and learn to shred in the blink of an eye. Steve Vai didn't pick up a guitar one day and turn his guitar into woodchips.

You practice, you practice, you practice some more, and then you practice a little more than that. Patience is the key, and if you don't have the patience, you don't deserve to learn.

Good day to you.

Learn your scales and practice them A LOT and then you'll find that it's much easier when it comes to shredding

During practice once, my bass player was trying to act cool and headbang and I hit him in the face with sharp head of my washburn (accident maybe). Theres still a tiny bit of blood in my guitar, I think its kinda cool
