Goddammit. That's not what post-hardcore is.

i'll admit that Bullet for My Valentine is not post-hardcore, its metalcore. but Escape The Fate is classed under post-hardcore.
okay, so i'm not new to music(i've played guitar for five years and drums for two) but i've never really understood how good music is written on the guitar. i've looked up alot of stuff on the internet, but never really found anything i thought was helpful.

i'm in a band, Defying the Fallen, and we would like to play music similar to Escape the Fate or Bullet for My Valentine. any tips on writing good guitar riffs/breakdowns/solos/etc in the post-hardcore genre?

thanks to anyone that helps.
