Watch the For the Bird Solo1 online guitar lesson by Chris Buono from Guitar Lab: Blues Soloing

The mere sight of all the ii-Vs contained within the changes may inject a feeling of "uh-oh" into your playing, but hold on. Before you push the panic button take a look at this first solo. What do you see? Looks pretty basic, right? That's because it is! It's almost totally F major pentatonic horizontally played across the changes with strategic moments where chord tones are played over the chords to outline the harmony. Feel better? You can do this - seriously!
