    In my simplest mind - solo in sections.

    Section 1 = slight melody
    Section 2 = Shred
    Section 3 = return to and embellishment on melody
    section for = Ladder to climax

    Or Single note/Double stop call/response style

    Or Go modal...E minor penta, to E minor, to a Dorian movement, back to pentatonic, maybe a little Mixolydian to brighten it up, back to Penta for the finish.

    Vary the register and the style...low/high/low etc

    I improvise melodies, and also go outside the chords.

    Hereís one of my bandís songs thatís mostly in E during the solo. Itís also a very fast punk type thing. At first I couldnít figured out what to play over it.

    So I had to get creative and take the solo through different phases. I improvised most of it, and composed a couple of spots. Then I re-learned it and double tracked it. Live I just play it like the recording. Itís a challenge to get out of the solo and into the bridge. It keeps me on my toes.

    Nice solo, it fits the song well.

    I start with a heavy metal solo, then I go to classic rock, then jazz, then I go to blues, then pop....if there is another bar I start to rap. OK, the truth is I just play the way I always play....I've been doing it so long I can't change.
