Hi, I can't really improvise. I know the pentatonic minor scale, but I barely use it. I do most of my improvisation by ear, but I would like to learn some scales. There is an audio clip of my poor improvisation in my profile. Have a listen. I don't even know what to scale to use, so I did that one by ear, and I know most of it is the wrong notes. The song I used is Hungry Like the Wolf. Can someone give me some tips on how to start improvising? I feel lost. Thanks,
Learn theory properly; check out the "The Crusade" series of articles on this site and don't move on from one section to the next until you understand it.
