Try adding string skips, or more legato if you aren't already.

Try Muris's Paul Gilbert lesson, Paul uses string skips and legator like JVW mentioned. This will give you a fresh look on improvisation! smile.gif

You can do loads of things with just a single octave. Mix the notes, mix the duration of notes, if you want to play 3nps stuff than i guess you want to make it fast so it will most likely sound scalar unless you mix boxes. One word - experiment!

Yeah dude, dont be afraid of trying out new things. Sometimes it takes sometime to get used to not doing scalary runs, and such. And if you cant ever get out of the scalar runs. Just try using them as build ups. Also check out a lot of different shredders. Neoclassical ones like Rob Marcello, and such!!
