Watch the Soloing over the Entire 8 Bar Progression online guitar lesson by Brad Carlton from Guitar Lab: Vertical Soloing

The final lesson is how to play on just one string which gives an entirely different vibe to your soloing. I'll slow the track way down to help you. Patterns won't serve you as well when playing along the sting axis as they do when you're in position (fret axis). You have to know the names of the notes. But the benefits of being able to "feel" the intervals and incorporate slides is tremendous. You'll notice a huge difference in your playing (freedom) if you play along the string axis.
