atm my improvising is just random notes from the scale im using
are there any methods you can use to make it more... musical?

When you practise random notes from a scale you will learn which notes sounds good after eachothers kind of, so I guess just playing that scale alot will make you play "the right notes" :P

Play with other people. Just make sure they don't make TOO much fun of you when you mess up.

If you know your basic scales and modes, your already ahead of the game compared to a lot of rock bassists.

off on a tangent....

If you start a solo in a particular mode, should you maintain it throughout?

im mainly asking for blues or jazz stuff

It depends if you're playing modal jazz or playing a mode to fit over a series of chords. If it's the former, then you'll mostly stick in that mode for quite awhile before changing. If it's the latter, you'll want to change modes as the chords necessitate.

TS, what kind of improv are we talking? Jazz or rock based stuff?

Learn your arpeggios!


Quoted for truth!

Learn your arpeggios and then learn to play around those notes emphasising them by playing them more or accenting them. Once you do that it should come a little more naturally.
