As odd as this may sound..thank you so much for doing the lesson on Symphony of Destruction! FINALLY the solo is there!
I am practicing that lesson a lot and my question here pertains to soloing. I play in a a thrash metal band and I am rythm/co-lead and vocals. We do a lot of Megadeth covers and Dave Mustaine is my guitar idol. The only thing is that I have trouble learning long solos and doing sweep picking. I usually do "machine gun picking" as Mustaine does in songs like "Wake Up Dead" and "The Mechanix". However, I really want to learn solos like the one in Symphony or Tornado of Souls. How do you approach learning a solo?
Also, I am the main lyricist for my band and I write all the riffs, but I tend to come short on ideas a lot. I know what I want it to sound like but it just tends to sound the same after a while. How do you approach your compositions? I really want to be able to get all these songs on paper and then recorded! :-D
Thank you for any advice.
Is there any way you could possibly do a lesson on the song Lucretia by Megadeth? The riffs and solos are insane and it is quite an intricate song.
