One guitar soloing trick is to use the tones of the chord you're playing over as main notes of your melody, and add passage notes that do not belong to the backing chords.

I've built this free online software tool that helps you create a chords progression, and visualize on the fretboard the single tones that compose the chords (for more information on chord progressions, check the chords in keys reference pdf). As first exercise, set up a simple and common chord progression such as C G Am F, take your guitar and try to play only the tones of the chords. Then start to add some other notes, and feel the sound. It's a great exercise to developed awareness on the instrument.

A big library of chords

Whether you wish to create a blues chords progression, or a more intricate harmony, you can select your chords among a great deal of varieties: dominant chords, diminished, major and minor, 6/9, augmented and a lot of other qualities.. You can also select different kinds of rhythm: 4/4, 3/4, 5/4, 7/8.

Specific for guitar players (even left-handed)

The tool visualizes the guitar fretboard, highlighting the notes of the chords. This help you develop your improvisation skills, as you become aware of what notes are in the harmony, and where they are placed on the fretboard. So you can find more easily which scales and arpeggios are good to play over a given chord progression. For lefty guitar players, it's possible to change the layout and use a left-handed fretboard.

Alternate tunings

The tool provides several alternate tunings: Drop D, Drop C, C Standard, Open C, D Standard, Open D, Modal D, Open D Minor, Open G and many others.
