I am really not good at it but I don't work on it much. I have seen people though who can almost improvise over anything by using 3 chord shapes.

Here's my two cents worth. If you want to sound like Southern Rock try fooling around with the Mixolydian mode. The "China Grove" solo is a good example. If you want to sound more like the boogie blues, then try the Dorian mode. Playing the Blues Scale or the True Blues Scale, that has the b5, gets old and doesn't give you the two extra notes that the Dorian mode gives you. Using the Dorian mode allows you to play a run that holds on a 2 or 6 note and makes you sound a bit more like jazz. You don't have to stop and hold on the 1 or 5 note all the time.
