I have several riffs or chord progressions i like and a few solos i like also. but i cant seem to find a way to transition from the main riff into the solo.
Why not play the main riff underneath the solo? Should help tie the whole thing together.

Yeah....cause a solo without shredding just isn't a real solo...

If it's a fast paced song a drum roll could work, or if you wanna progress into the solo with the guitar maybe play some of the riff, and then for the rest of the bar play a part of the solo? (ugh....I'm really not explaining this properly....let's try an example)

Example :



you can play this


then instead of playing the b5, and e5, play a little solo-ish thing over it.

I hope i explained this well.
Have the normal riff lead into a bridge riff that has a dramatic tempo or key change. It all really depends on what type of music you're playing.
