    Write the guide tone lines that result from those ii-V. There you have a very strong line that you can embelish. You could also try to superimpose other changes over that, such as a big ii-V in the whole section....play with some ideas, and try to think with your ears, not with a book (I always forget that one, and when I remember to hear everything ends up sounding a lot better)

    Continuous line activities helped me learn to play on tunes like this (wayne, coltrane, tunes etc.)

    Start with a note in the key of the first change, then play 1/8 or 1/4 notes, in position or up and down the neck. Keeping moving in the same direction, to the next available note.

    Example: Ask me now, bars 1&2, 3rd position, 1/8 notes:

    X-----------------------------------------------2
    X--------------------------------------3-5-
    X---------------------------3-5-6-
    X----------------2-4-5-6
    X--------3-4-6-
    X-3-5-6

    You can do the same thing, but only with chord tones.
