Used to have that problem. Do yourself a huge favour and get a recording device. Any kind, even the cassette ones and record yourself. You wount believe how much better you can get if you liosten to yourself. Not only that but you wont even forget your solos. I dont have that much money to spare right now so i bought a $14 Sony Pressman cassette recorder. Works fine if you put the guitar real close to it. :D
What i do is i start off my recording by saying what i'll be doing, what key im in, the techniques i used and stuff like that. If not you'll play something, record it and then come back later and totally forget how you played it. Nothing as annoying as having played some really cool line and then forgetting it. :)
