You must have some way to record yluesrof.   Record yluesrof playing rhythm guitar, and then try to solo over it. Listening to your recordings is a great way to see your strong points and indicate areas where you need improvement.   Scales are nice, but remember, scales are not music it's a technical robotic exercise. The most important scale is the pentatonic, so if you must work on scales, make it the pentatonic.   Learn a least 4-5 different ways to play each chord.   You'll improve 10 times as fast playing music with another than you will sitting alone in your room, so try to find a slightly better player willing to put up with you.   Visualize the chords, solos, notes..etc in your mind when you're away from your guitar.   Subscribe to a good guitar magazine your choice. Getting that magazine in the mail every month keeps the juices flowing.   Read Rock  Roll biographies always inspiring and they make you want to play.   By music from other guitarists don't just stick to your favorite music investigate.   Best of luck, have fun, and practice till those fingers bleed.

Hi Alison,Have just done an impro unit with Year 9 and used a great starting tuhnciqee that I learnt from James Morrison. He did a workshop with our Jazz Band a couple of years ago and demonstrated the art of the one note improvisation. Based on the 12 bar blues, he showed that by using just one note with funky rhythms, you could create a great impro. I was working in D blues so we all played a D and developed some strong rhythmic ideas focusing on syncopation and anticipation. Once the kids were getting comfortable and funky we would then use two notes of the blues scale and continue to build from there. This made all of the students feel good as even the singers couldn't stuff up playing one note.Worked like a treat and was a great place to refer students when they then started to develop their own 12 bar blue impro for performance.
