I was wondering how guitar players fill in the gaps between what they play. ( this is called fills I believe? )

At 4:00-4:18 in this video he is playing some chords but how does he know what notes to chose to connect them sounding nicely??

this might not be the best example but I hope you get at what I am trying to say.

Do you know the chords, and what notes the lead guitarist is playing? If you figure them out I think you'll find he's not deviating far from chord tones at all.
And no, Guitar Hero will not help. Even on expert. Really.

Or he is playing off of scales in the key of the song, which I think might have been what you just said. Thats how I construct my fills.
