I'm trying to write a a solo in the scale of G pentatonic major. I'm struggling abit those goes together. How did you guys make your first solo?
Poorly. Then after writing a couple bad guitar solos you start writing good ones.
Run the scale up and down Zakk Wylde-style.
improvise--writing out a solo is lame, plus you learn what sounds better and develop your own style
Take some notes from the scale and mess around with them, make a lick, then add some more notes and the you're going to get the idea of making solos.
I started improvising in the key of G too actually, hit a couple of hooks and then ran a link to the G box an octave higher.
