Im always looking for inspiration and as my technical skills increase im looking for new avenues of expression.
Specifically looking for aggressive sounding licks. Maybe even somewhat flashy or possibly even diminished or even whole tone or other exotic stuff if its jumps out at you etc
for example, Vai/Satch stuff isnt that aggressive. Eddie isnt either, he is more like “wow, im a cool dude in Cali”
I guess Zakk Wylde is pretty aggressive sounding, any good examples come to mind (not riffs…solos)
Yngwie can be quite aggressive when he wants to but ive OD’ed on Yngwie and Eddie for years so im looking for some fresh ideas
Ill give a couple examples off the top of my head.
This opening lick just grabs you. Then the little muted part at like 225 is really in your face
this little muted part before it kicks into doubletime
another muted part, where he does the lick then sort of accelerates it 4:01 - 4:03 ish
so I guess im looking for good aggressive palm muted stuff in solos, maybe on low strings but not necessarily limited to low strings
(im checking some Nuno stuff, its cool of course but then he always gonna throw in some major sounding stuff or a dozen modulations…its almost like aggressive Charlie Brown music)
