When I wanna get in songwriting mode, sometimes I'll spin a folk or slowcore album, or maybe something like the "Tonight, Tonight" EP.

You can play a guitar solo with 2 notes really
I was once looking at this online exercise that tried to get you to learn to create good solos by going as basic as seeing what you can do with a two-note solo or even a one note solo where you play with rhythm. I'll link it later if I can find it.
I haven't practiced my right hand chops nearly as much as theory and left hand stuff. Haven't done a lot of sweep picking. Artificial harmonics (I think those are the strumming-hand ones) are easy to just do, but integrating them smoothly into actual music is hard (hard to move the position of the pick in your fingers fluidly). I can't really fingerpick, either.
