1) Learn the major scale all over the neck and understand how it works.
2) Learn to use arpeggios ( and thus learn how to solo with chord tones )
3) Listen to horn players ( seriously, their phrasing is awesome because they HAVE to breathe between licks)
4) Profit!

Think more in terms of chords, rather than scales. What I mean is, instead of trying to fit a certain scale over your chord progressions, really listen to the progressions. Certain scales will sound good over certain progressions, and not so good over certain others. As said before, learning about chord tones, arpeggios, etc. really helps with this.

Can you give an example of the types of chord progressions you're using?

How about the super awesome rockin scale of doom?

That one works every time!

I'm actually a bit of a downer so I use the mildly pitiful scale of apathy.
And no, Guitar Hero will not help. Even on expert. Really.
