You should think about structure (if any) first:

You might want a nice melodic slower intro, then some tapping, then some fast runs and then a dive out. A pretty reliable combo, but if you listen to others' solos, youll see structure is an important factor of solos.

Simplicity is good at first. It really depends on the mood you're trying to set, and your personaly ability.

Structuring with the scales helps. For example, you know minor scales sound eerie, so use them for sweeps, and possibly melodic sections of the solo, if thats the mood you're setting. Then some modes will help for tapping and runs.

Think about structure!, and the backing guitar.
