Does anyone have any tips on how to write something similar to this song?

I know my scales and chords etc. but have a hard time making a song. I might come up with a cool little riff or some piece of a verse or chorus or whatever but don't know what to do with it!!

In the video that I posted how does he know where to throw in those really cool runs in the song and actually make it work and sound well like at 0:26 ?Do you think he just plays something randomly that sound good or maybe he is matching the chord with its underlying scale?
