Alright so i saw some guy explain that you should follow the notes in the chord progression when soloing which makes sense and i try to apply that. When i play it in jazz or jazz fusion though a lot of the chords are complex and often out of key. Im listening to guys like greg howe and his changes seem very fluid.

Any tips as what to do in this situation?

I know a lot of jazz players have a set of 'standard' licks for different chord types and they string them together over the chord progression to play fully formed solo's on the fly. You need to have a number of licks for different chord types and be able to change them to fit different parts of the fretboard and different roots. I can post some examples if you'd like
