So when i try to solo/improvise with backing tracks i always seem to stay in this box. Say like the backing track was in A, I only stay in the Am blues scale and i dont know how to solo outside of it. help me out?

Solo in A minor. Also add the blue note from Am blues into the A minor scale, it can make for some tasty chromatic runs. Also adding the major 7th (from harmonic minor) can sound really good if used right. This of course if the backing track was in A minor, if it's A major I guess you could do the same thing but with the major scale. That'd be a minor 6th and a minor 3rd(blue note) added in there, though these can easily clash with the backing track if it has a major quality.

learn the notes of the fretboard if you have not, then take the notes in the blues scale and find them everywhere.

IMO this is the only way of getting out of boxes.

Step 1: Squeeze the base
Step 2: Look into her eyes
Step 3: Pull out
