Dude that chord progression is pretty sweet

As far as the lead goes just try to mix it up a bit. Throw in some Em arpeggios, i heard some stuff from the E minor scale maybe try some stuff in the D major scale too. Just explore the scales and arpeggios a little bit.

Overall pretty cool man. Keep it up

Wow, I know absoutley nothing about scales or arpeggios. All that I really do is find an area on the neck where it sounds good, and wail away. Should I look into theory?

You don't really need to look into theory. Maybe some basic theory. Mainly just learn the natural minor and major scales.

For this tune, you would use D major and E minor. Both would sound good.

Lemme give you a tab with some examples in just a sec

aiight, I hear about this stuff all the time, but whenever I look into it, it just seems like a waste of time.
