My understanding is that there are five notes in a pentatonic scale in each octave. The pentatonic scale mimics human speech. Phrase the notes as though you are talking. With breaths and all. When playing to music hit the root note of each chord as the chords change. This in an effort to understand how things work. Save the flying for when you understand when to apply it. It sounds like you already got it down so it's time to move on.
