I think you need to slow down your rhythms , don't shred as much, focus on creating melodies that interact with rests between them and you should have it wink.gif

i am definately no expert in solos

but i would guess that doing a really soulful melodic out-of-this-world heartfelt solo gotta be one of the hardest things to do on a guitar..

I think the reason is you haven't focused on that kind of playing before mate. Just try to learn new licks and practice more bending and vibrato. Also you can post some video or audio clip of you playing so we can possibly comment what should be rehearsed.

cheers,
Ivan

Take the minor pentatonic scale, put on some Gary Moore records and follow what he's doing. Listen to those records four million times and some of it will wear off on ya'.
