Yea you gotta work on your phrasing. You want to think of scale structers as a base for the solo such as the penatonic used in most rock n roll. Am I making this clear lol its not that easy to explain?

Do you mean writing or improvising? With improvisation it's very difficult. Personally I almost never improvise. Usually the audience just gets bored.
Ever wonder what rock would have sounded like in 2010 if grunge hadn't made it cool to be stupid?

Think of each phrase as a sentense. Make each one speak or say something. Know your scales well enought that you don't have to think about them when you play...just put these phrases or sentenses together...small or large....and there is your solo!!

again, think of a solo as someone speaking....

Speaking of solo, Wintersun- Death and The Healing, check out how they do it, it is the most cut and dried solo ever. It matches the entire tone of the song to a T with a 2 minute long solo starting out in a dark ominous tone then switching over to a happy cheerful tone. But yeah, as everyone said, it's in the Phrasing.

Metal, should kick you in the nuts, after you catch it messing around with your girlfriend.
and then make a sandwhich in your house and walk out.
