Melodics not only sound good when used in the right place but are great exercises for getting the right hand used to doing different things.
They have really helped me improve the way I think about approaching both leads and back-up and the rewards for the time I've spent on them have far outweighed the trouble it has taken me to learn what small amount I have so far.

This is coming along slowly but surely. My right hand is getting used to the different placement and pickings. I have to keep making myself slow down, play cleanly and get the notes right. It's frustrating sometimes but I'm determined to get it down.
I've found I need a short break after about 10 mins of the same thing. I start making mistakes big time if I just run on and on. So I'll go about 10 mins, take a break and them come back to it.
