If you know the names of the notes on the fret board you can translate that into solos by using musical theory. For example: if the song your playing has C major in it the note names of C Major are C, E, and G...therefore you could use those notes in your solo when C Major is being played, if the song switches to G Major the notes are G, B, and D, so these could be used in that part of your solo. Now these are only possibilities. It is not necessary to stick to only these, but every note you choose has some relation theoretically to what else is occurring in the song at the time. Knowing the notes on the fretboard is one useful tool to rely on to help 'construct' solos.

Well that is difficult to answer. start by slacking off on the E 2 turns. this will put you in close. now solo will sound like it should. once accomplished go pork a monkey.
