That helps, my real problem is that when i'm writing all these different licks, they just dont sound metal, I try and play them faster add bends, and they just dont sound right, Its pissing me off, maybe I try moving away from pentatonic licks, which is what I have been playing mostly.

Penatonic is a decent start, but expand on it, run through it a couple times, palm mute the top notes, even do the zakk wylde lick of

e-15-12-15-12-----15-12-15-12-----
b-------------15-12-----------15-12
g-----------------------------------
d-----------------------------------
a-----------------------------------
E-----------------------------------

The natural or harmonic minor scales will also work, just keep practicing

Is there anyway we can hear some of your licks that you're talking about? Because to be honest seriously you're the worst and horrible critic of yourself. Sometimes you may write stuff that you may not like but others who aren't.. how you could say in your current mind frame, could be like oh shit thats kick ass.

If something you do works, i'd stick with it. But also sending us some licks that you have done could help others tweak it if it needed to be tweaked.
