(by the way, I'm using this site http://www.jamcenter.com/jammachinec.html )

whenever I use backing tracks, it seems like my solos sound horrible. now i'm not very good to begin with, but when I improvise over backing tracks...my solos just sound bad, with bad phrasing and note choices...any tips?

on the site they have recommended scale choices for the style of backing track (E.G. D blues jam = major pentatonic and mixolydian) so i think it's more me. unless the site is wrong...
