I already know a hell of alot of theory but when i come to write solos now i always find it really difficult to make it have any rythm or melody, i can play a fast solo easy as pie but is there any advice you could give me to improve on this?

umm i can't really think of the word to describe what im on about but anyway.
get a friend or even record yourself playing a chord progression
then over the top of this play a melody using only 3 notes.
its good to practise writing solo's, then try with 4 notes and 5 notes and so on.
it will help you with your melodies. which go towards a good solo =]

hope this help

Spend less time on theory and speed exercises, and more time focusing on music.
