ive been practicing my tapping but what other techniques can I do to really make a solo in a metal song besides that and tremolo picking?
well sweep picking, but I agree with cfhwarhead they dont have to be fast. I am a sucker for anything melodic.

It's not incest, but it's not masturbation.
It'd be closer to incest than masturbation, but I don't think there's a word for it.

try melodic fingertapping, or sweeping but mostly find a good melody/scale/watever and try to play it different ways using different techniques ie: tapping, sweeping and find out which one you like best
