[updated:LAST EDITED ON Aug-09-05 AT 08:40 PM (EST)]I just walk up and down either the major scale or harmonic minor scale of the asppropriate chords. Does the trick just fine.

As stated in previous post refer to scale charts. A great source can be found at :

1. Choose root note (e.g G)
2. Tuning (bass obviously)
3. Major, Minor Pentatonic or Blues

You can use the charts to either improvise behind the chord sequence or create structured triads to reinforce the underlying chords.
