I have been playing for two and a half almost 3 years. My biggest problem is that I never learn songs all the way through even thougg I want to. I feel i might just need some new songs. I like alot of prog rock and prog metal. My rythem is pretty good but soloing is crap. Thanks guys.
I am not sure if this is right forum either, if it isn't I will move or delete it.

play some Rush.
If a mortal stands before us
Strike him down with sleight of hand.
And if heaven rides against us
Then God himself must be damned.

You really need to find something you really like. I'm sort of in the same situation as you. I never learn solos. I don't want to spend time memorizing (mainly because my memory sucks) them when I could just have fun improvising the solo and adding my own personal artistic flare. I only learn parts that I really like. I also found that I'm more likely to learn long instrumental passages more that short solos.

Look up some Paul Gilbert, Andy Timmons, Gary Moore, Jason Becker, and Between the Buried and Me. Those are my favorites and you'll learn a lot from them

JELIFISH I know I need to but the problem is I am getting bored with what I have it is either too easy or too advanced. I just needed some advice on some new songs to check out. Do you happen to have any?

Being able to hum what you are going to learn makes learning it so much easier.
And Chew GUM. Something about Gum makes the memory work better... and its great for staying awake during class

Why not just go back to old songs and learn them all the way through...?
