You did very good! You have a good technique and a very nice touch! I have a few suggestions
Try playing less! It is a very common thing to play too much when you are learning to play over the changes, it sounded insecure like you are scared to loose the key and fall out! I would suggest to use more chord tones third and seventh work great! Try gradually build your solo! I really liked you rhythmic ideas on the second part! Good job!
So here is a new challenge! I would like you to build the whole solo on chord tones! You can use any octaves but limited with the third and seventh! Try it out it will change the way you think and will open up new way of improvisation! smile.gif
Let me know if you have any questions or need help!

Just to be sure I got this you want me to solo with chord tones only or only use 3rd and 7th ?
I think "You can use any octaves but limited with the third and seventh!"might have thrown me off a little.

You can use any octaves of the chord tones:) So you are limited! Actually let's also add fifth!
So you have Third - Fifth - Seventh any octave!

Attached is what I have been working with I really liked just using the chord tones to practice so made a sheet to practice through out the week. also changing from chord tones only to scales to licks tapping string skipping changing note values etc I assign one technique or idea to each chord or maybe just two over the entire progression I also spell each chord in the progression im using for the day skys the limit really you get the Idea take a look and see what you think and if any suggestions please let me know.

Wow! This is impressive! smile.gif You are doing your homework!
What progression are you talking about exactly? The one I gave you?
Chord tones are really important! It's like building a house chord tones is the foundation and the rest you are building around it!
I would suggest to get good at chord tones first I have plenty of exercises that will help you!
Let's start with the chord progression I gave you! Just use chord tones only though the whole tune you can use any octave but limited to chord tones only!
Let me know if you have any questions or need help!
P.S. Next week I will join you and will be recording tracks as well to give you ideas!

Rhythm is still shakey but im all improv and trying to stick to chord tones. Sometimes I hear something else and and struggle to stick to the chord tone I think but I'm having great fun with this, feels like practice.

You did a great job! I would suggest trying to keep it a little less busy and gradually build your solo!
Next week I will record a track to give you ideas! smile.gif
Rhythm was a little shaky but it's because you are playing something new and don't feel secure just yet it will go away very soon!:)
Let me know if you have any questions or need help with anything!
