No prob Robey.
I don't know "where you are" in terms of your guitar scale knowledge, only my own progression. When I started playing leads I wanted to know what scale the lead was in and I would just go off without any structural knowledge to work from. Occasionally I'd get something nice but the process was hap-hazard at best. The major or blues pentatonic with their 'no wrong note' status were somewhat deceptive and seductive as they (for me anyway) tended to lull me into a false sense of accomplishment.
It's only when I ventured deeper (due mostly to some leads sounding not quite right) into blending scales to create phrasing that at once made a 'statement' and then followed with a complementary phrase, that I felt I was making some serious headway.
Think in terms of stringing meaningful phrases together, while understanding that one phrase can rely more on major accents, while the next may rely on blues accents etc.
A great example that comes to mind because it's so in your face would be Jimi Hendrix' lead in 'The Wind Cries Mary'. He plays a purely blues phrase right in the middle of what for the most part is a major scale lead. Absolute genius.
The trick is to make it cohesive.
I've rambled enough, but I thought this deserved a little elaboration.
