Choose songs wisely. Solos will sound empty if the bass and drums don't "arrange" for them. That is a serious effort. 70s/80s punk is a good option. Don't overplay the verses because you can wind up with nothing to lift up on the chorus. Play as little as possible, only enough to outline the song. Broad strokes. The bass and drums have to define the song. If they sound and play such that the song is not recognizable, the guitar will not help. These are not rules, but things to keep in mind.
