You've had two very helpful responses which I'd like to add to. If you have recordings of the style of music you'd like to improvise on, I suggest you play along with them. I found it helpful to play long single notes, much like you were playing a bass line, trying to be in harmony with what's being played. Generally, what you consider 'wrong' notes are but a half-step away from a suitable note. Playing with records is an excellent form of ear training, and not concerning yourself with how many notes you play gives you the time to better hear the progression of chords. Good luck, and have fun. R
