Mandolin soloing over chord changes

I am working hard on making my mandolin breaks more "musical" and not so predictable.  I can play melody lines when I know the song, but only in the scale of the key.  Anybody know a good practice technique to solo within a chord and stay within the chord changes?  Thanks!
