Apparently, it is deceptively easy to play, per Slash:

Oh never mind we don't own dat.
People have already touched on it, but learning melodic solos is one way. Chord tones, as previously stated are important.
You have Gilmour as your avatar. Learn the first solo in Comfortably Numb. Notice all the chord tones. It's almost the entire solo.
You might want to learn solos and melodies without your instrument first. Once you can sing them note for note, then learn them on your instrument.
I'm no Joe Pass expert, just repeating what I heard.
Woops! Brain and copy'n'paste were disconnected.
Yes, his background is gypsy jazz. He is playing his Eastman signature model guitar.
Arpeggiate with discipline, and make sure your patterns match the harmony of the music. Learn some classical and romantic melodies. I don't necessarily mean fingerpicked, but just straight single note parts. Learn to 'hang' a finger over a harmonically correct 3rd or 6th, whether you intend to play it or not. Always know where the tonic is, and the root and 3rd of the chord you're on.
Vocal melodies are fine to learn, necessary, even, but voice is differently written than instrumental music. There are leaps and arpeggios that occur more frequently in instrumental melodies that are well suited for guitar.
were on the sam page! Its just one of those things I've heard or read a long time ago and stuck with me.
Singing them first...That's what Gilmour did in the studio. It probably explains how pretty his solos tend to be. And of course, melodic.
Is that tab for lap steel???
The Skolnik lesson on triads is good, but DANG, shut off that delay, Alex.
(Time for another Joe Pass rumour!)
I don't know. I can only read standard notation.
