I'm having some troubles...

I've been trying to find the solo to the song Slip Out by Beck
but so far what I've seen is only the chords..
the chord progression goes like this...
C-G-F-Am-G > VERSE
C-F-G-C > PRE-CHORUS
F-G-C > CHORUS
C-G-F-C > BRIDGE
C-G-F-Am-G > OUTRO

I noticed that this was in the key of C Major Scale..

but my improv doesn't fit the song
why is this?..

at what part of the song ur trying to improvise? are u usually good improviser?

At some parts of the song where is Am you could perhaps use a A harmonic minor or a A minor pentatonic over it? You could also try different modes at some part perhaps.

comes before the bridge...

So if it's the chorus then you want to solo over F-G-C, I think C major SHOULD work over them if you know what ur doing with it but you could also use Like C-lydian over F then change to a C-major pentatonic over G and C chords, I'd do it like that but there are MANY MANY other ways to do it man

I see, another question if you don't mind..
If I use arpeggios should I play the notes in order?..
for example:..
when I want to arpeggiate C..I should play the notes C-E-G in order?..

it's probably just the way you are playing the solo itself.

this is Cmaj so the Cmaj scale will work just fine

you need to learn a little phrasing. maybe listen to the song and hum or think of idea's of how you want your solo to sound then play it.

even if you have to practice to get up to speed or whatever

no but you can if you want

just play it how you like it to sound

so if I use arpeggios to solo in this song,
the notes I should hit are, F-A-C, G-B-D, C-E-G?

if you rearrange those notes into alphabetical order... it's the C major scale.
