Is this just improvising or is it something else, i heard marty friedman say it on his "betcha can't play this", which is very playable just wanted to know if there was more to the word than just improvising. If there is explain?

Ad-libbing is usually an acting term, but it means improvising or straying from the lines.

In most settings it means the exact same thing, unless you see it written in sheet music. If it's written, it may mean you can be free about either a tempo or a general melodic line (while still following the general contour), or if you see "repeat ad lib." it just means to repeat it at your discretion and end it whenever.

In almost all cases as people refer to it, though, ad lib = improvise.

Of a script.

Apply the same principle to a song, and the basic semantics of ad libbing translate from acting to music.
