Hi. Often when I play guitar, I like to record some riff or use an existing riff and just solo over it. I have had alot of fun with this until a week ago or so, when I noticed I was playing the same style solo all the time. It's boring me. Do you guys know things I could do to put a little more variation into my solos? Thanks.

Listen to as much different music as possible and listen to the phrasing of their solos.

Phrasing is the most important part of a solo. BAR NONE.

what Zaphod_Beeblebr said, and, learn as many different modes/scales as possible, and experiment with mixing them and such.
