I listen to a lot of thrash metal, so in my Lead playing I've mainly focused on shredding. But i want help writing more melodic solos, but still fast. Stuff like Friedman would. If anyone's got any ideas that would be great

Marty has a DVD about melodic soloing, you can find it on YouTube. I think it's called Melodic control.

sylosis, who i'd consider thrash, have some amazing solos with both beautiful melody and crazy speed. maybe check out kingdom of solitude, the river... anything off their two latest albums really

Although not metal as such but it's very melodic, try looking at the solo for TNT's 'Tonight I'm Falling'. Melody, technique and feel all in one solo;-)
excuse the cheesy 80's vid, but the solo is awesome:-)
Check it out on youtube;-) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aeIIYWnhSY4

This is a good suggestion.
You have to think more about phrasing rather than licks.
But boys will be boys and girls have those eyes
that'll cut you to ribbons, sometimes
and all you can do is just wait by the moon
and bleed if it's what she says you ought to do
