I can't imagine anything worse than shagging to Mark Knopfler.

Maybe shagging Mark Knopfler, but that's about it.

You mean you can't write your own stuff because it all sounds the same? Try taking the guitar out of the equation for a bit, record yourself singing what you hear in your head, then transfer that to your guitar. And learning some theory wouldn't hurt - start with learning your major scale inside out, including how to harmonise it.

Learn guitar properly.
Learn some theory too.

lol that maybe a big problem lol i still havent bothered to learn scales they look like they would be impossible to memorize.lol
#12
do what the other person say
play with ur mind
become the listener
or use othe formations within the scale
i too had this problem but listen to more music outside metal
it make the mind create more ideas

Try putting away the guitar when writing or composing, and instead notate in Finale or another notation program. The thing is when you're stuck in a rut your fingers will dictate your playing.
From the sounds of it you should also read up on some theory too.

Edit: Look up the crusade articles on this site and the theory sticky in this forum.

Learn the notes of the neck, intervals and the major scale. Check out Freepower's theory vids if that sounds daunting
