Ok, so I have this crazy awesome (well, I think it's crazy awesome) rhythm guitar part, but I need a crazy lead guitar part too. But I want the lead to be like licks or riffs or whatever, and I want to know how to make a crazy awesome solo to back it all up. My song is in the key of A minor, and I wanna play off an A minor pentatonic. I probably said something wrong there, but I'm no music theory genius.
Anyway, my question is, how can I make some good sounding lead guitar track for my song if I'm using the A minor pentatonic scale? And don't go all smarty pants music on me, I'm not very good at it at this point in time. Haha. Thanks!

Emphasize the notes of the chords you're playing over.
Have some theme and variation.
Build up to a climax.

Make a backing track and improvise over it for a while until you find something good.
blue strat basically said everything you need to know.
some more suggestions: listen to bands/styles you like. It may not be the most original thing in the world, but it can get the creative juices flowing.
