This kind of solo would have blown my mind when I was younger, but after learning lots of Metallica, Megadeth, and Dream Theater solos, you start to pick up on some useful strategies and structures for making a solo. This one in particular is very influenced by Kirk Hammet, with the Wah pedal inclusion adding even more Metallica influence.
Although I don't have the same shredding skills as the legends, I can still utilize the skills I DO have and get the most out of them by planning and writing. I mainly compose by feel- and then I consult my theory to help me execute what I'm feeling if it isn't happening naturally (this is usually the case). In this instance, the theory used is knowledge of several scales (Pentatonic Minor, Blues, and Minor), a few rhythmic concepts, and overall structure.
