    man... i've been making my own stuff too... it's damn simple... I know a bit bout theory.. and i rarely apply it on purpose ... it just applies itself. And i find that moving my fingers in a similar way across a different set of strings helps... the process, for me, usually starts wid a simple catchy riff... i'd repeat it twice with variations. Then i'd go to the same riff except move it to a higher pitch or a lower pitch and do just a few different things wid it. After that, i just move a few fingiers here and there. and then create a sort of rhytm with moving the fingers... it just comes out to be summin that sounds good if not amazing... try this way... it works for me in creating compositions... the only problem is... u need a lot of variety... so if u hav power chords in the beginning... then u should go for octaves... or maybe a different type of interval... if u had some alternative picking in the previous solo, then u should have summin different this time... And if ur gonna have a fast part... have a lead up to it. It shouldn't just rip outta some soulful stuff u were playing a sec ago... if ur gonna play rlly fast all of a sudden... hav a build up on the same scale or have a fast riff before the solo, expand on that riff and then let the beast within u shred the hell outta ur guitar. Ya, so good luck... i hope this post hasn't been just a piece of crap.

    Dont have a chorus. Thats my "advice". Chorii generally make the song feel cheap. Atleast to my ears.
