Where to go with this?

I've never really attempted to write anything before, but now I'm in a band I kinda have to haha so I grabbed my ESP and started playing whatever sounded decent to my ear, when I came up with this little melody;


|--------------12-----------------------12-------------------------------|
|-/15-----18-----13-15----------18-----13/18-17-15fb-13~---|
|------17---------------------/17----------------------------------------|
|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|

Now I'm not too sure where to go with it D:

The BPM is 150, each note is an eighth note

The chords behind it (once again, anything that sounded half decent to me xD)


|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
|-5---------------5--------------------------------------------------------|
|-3---------------5----------------8--------------------------------------|
|-1--1(x12)----3--3(x12)-----8--------------------------------------|
|------------------------------------8--8(x12)----------------------------|

The 12 notes after each chord are sixteenth notes and each chord is Quarter notes

Try some rhythmic variety. Using the same note lengths over and over gets stale very quick.
