Thread: Soloing Help?

    Default Soloing Help?

    Recently I've been listening to a lot of Rhapsody and Firewind, and I've got the main body of a power metal song, I just don't know where to start. Any specific scales Firewind use? Because I really like Gus G

    Please help!

    Well, most guitarists use either a Major, Melodic Minor, a Blues Scale, a Minor Pentatonic, or a Major Pentatonic, or a Harmonic Minor, but some like Steve Vai like to use Lydian or Dorian. At least those are some of the ones I use depending on the key.

    Running Wild, Accept, Iron Savior, Powerwolf, Sodom, Blind Guardian, Grave Digger

    dude i just recently started working with some diminished 7 arpeggio's and it seems to me alot of those metal guys(and more too im sure) are using alot of those in there tunes. like for instance:
    C diminished 7
    a-3
    d-1,4
    g-2
    b-1

    e diminished 7
    d - 2
    g - 0,3
    b - 2
    e - 0

    a diminished 7
    g - 2
    b - 1,4
    e - 2,5

    go up and down those to form a pretty cool lil lick. gonna have to stay adding those into some of my bass playing for some bass sweeps Check it out and lemme know if u dig it and dig hose types of riffs.
    FINGER TWIN POWERS ACTIVATE!!!

    If there were no rewards to reap,
    No loving embrace to see me through this tedious path I've chosen here,
    I certainly would've walked away by now.
