well me and my band immigrant have just recently started doing shows. we've been mostly doing covers, and we try to write our own stuff. we are trying to get an early iron maiden feel from paul diano era, while keeping the guitar parts as melodic as the later 80's era with dickenson.

any tips on trying to write songs like this?

I would also recommend checking out blues rock guitarists like Jimmy Page. Adrian Smith and Dave Murray both use a lot of blues rock licks in their solos. Also, don't forget having tons of cool sounding harmonies.
