Improvisation always works best with more than one person, so if you can do that have someone do rhythm guitar (just playing a chord progression over and over). If you can't, then record yourself doing the rhythm part and then just start playing scales over that. You'll start to work with the song and begin soloing over that chord progression once you start to really feel the song.

There's also lots of backing tracks you can download. Learn the basic blues scale pattern, then download a 12 bar blues backing - you can then solo over that using the blues scale of whichever key it is.

When you do start learning scales, don't just learn them in one position, learn them all over the neck, it'll take time, but it's worth the extra effort

try simple solo's like nirvana smell like teen spirit , MCR's solo are easy after some practise basely the main point to soloing is PRACTISE first u break the parts up into many diff many making it easiler to remeber then SLOWLY practise each part until u're good at the parts then play them together tat's wad i do and tats wad my teacher taught me ..

Learning particular solos is no help when it comes to learning HOW to solo, if anything it's more of a hindrance. The best way to do it is learn the basic principles of how solos work, get some basic improvisational techniques, then learn particular solos so you can see how people use those techniques.

Try typing correctly. Seriously.

It is very difficult to read things like that, which makes it harder to help you.
