Tolek; " This cool piece includes typical blues chords. You have A7 (A C# E G), D7 (D F# A C) and E7 (E G# B D). You can use the following scales:
A7: A Blues Scale (A C C# D Eb E G G# A) while focusing on the chord notes (A C# E G).
D7: same here
E7: same here."

the other day tolek posted this on a tread i created were i asekd the scale of a song so that i could improvise over it.. my question is how can i do that same he did (finding the notes of the chord and improvise with them/ how to improvise over chord ) ?? are there any good lessons about this here at GMC..??

If you aren't sure how Tolek found the notes from those chords, you should focus more in music theory.

Chords are related to scales. Each scale can build one chord, and basic chord (triade - three notes) is built from root, third and fifth interval. There are chords with more notes, where 7th, 9th, 11th and 13th interval is added as well.

When improvising, you should know the scale pattern on the neck, know the chord shapes on the neck as well, and be able to play arpeggiated chord patterns. This will enable you to learn the chord notes, often referred as "strong notes".

I suggest you start with music theory about chords, and learning the different chord shapes on the neck. In this case, you should practice A blues scale in various positions, and also practice A7 chord arpeggios in all positions, all up and down. This will create a good foundation for further developing your improvisation skills.

THere very first you need to do is stablish the key you are in, in this case it would be A. From that point you can decide on what mode, scale to use
