My band is like a Metal esque were shooting in all different directions as of now but anyway my question was me and the other guitarist dont really have problems writeing good Riffs but i have trouble writeing leads on the spot like usually i have to take the riff and sit out and think what lead could follow this or be played over it is this the write way to write leads ?

scales, would be the best and easiest
as soon as you control that.. writing solos wont be a problam
