pedal points that normally connect to a sweep pattern of some kind. Then i outline the arpeggio i swept with some tappy stuff that goes through a couple octaves. Then ill probably alternate pick up and hit the root note to end the solo, or ill do a huge legato lick all the way down to the root to end the solo. Oh, and i try not to choose notes that sound too over used in context.
Pedal points, sweeps, taps, alt pick, legato, that about sums it up
