Watch the Conclusion/Future Study online guitar lesson by Rob Garland from Melodic Soloing: Blues Chord Tones
Thanks for taking the course!
Go back through the course, analyze a lick that I played (or better yet, examine one of yours!) and figure out what the chord tones are. Transcribe your favorite licks. Think of the rhythm and the lead as connected and part of the same thing.
Be aware of where you are in a chord progression - be present! The goal is to get this material into your subconscious so it can come out naturally. Go back to the basics, hear one chord tone move between the I and the IV chord. Make sure you see triads all over the neck. Ask yourself what note you're playing and how it relates to the chord?
For more on this, have a look at my TrueFire course, Chord Navigator: CAGED Triads.
Practice playing along to songs without jam tracks as well as with the tracks. Practice making arpeggios musical in their application such as the 2 string exercise. Work through different keys and in different positions on the neck.
