I'm really having trouble with improvising. I can improv pretty well using 6th and sometimes 5th string. My issue here is that I want to try using the higher strings but I can't seem to do it without hitting everything! lol. I could really use a tip or two because this is really frustrating. Thanks ahead of time!

What seems to be the problem? Are you unsure or what notes to play or are you having trouble with your technique - that is, the actual playing of the notes themselves?
And I mean that in the best possible way.

well i get the whole scale thing so i pretty much know where to play its just i can't play them so they ring out and i can't play them very well altogether which sort of drives me back to the 5th and 6th strings. I'm not sure how i could get used to it. its there any soloing excercises or something that i could do to improve using the rest of the strings?

Run scales over the whole neck, VERY VERY slowly. Take as much time as you need to get the note to ring out the way you want it to. Speed isn't important, but it will come with time.

I also suggest learning all the notes on the fretboard and memorizing the notes in the scales you want to play.

There is no rush to learning any of this, take your time and have fun.

My advice would be to first make sure you slow down. Create a simple pattern that you can play on each string and then begin playing it slowly on each string. Watch both of your hands and once you hit the problem strings see if something changes with your fingering or positioning. Also try just playing on the problem strings until all the notes can ring out evenly. Always start with something slow and simple and then gradually improve your speed as the problem is isolated. Hope that helps.
