playing lead

I have been playing for almost 45 years, mainly rythym and some fingerstyle blues.  My biggest problem is going from a rythym to a lead.  I almost always hit with wrong strings.  How can I improve.  Is there a particular exercise that will help me improve?

Re: playing lead

Doing it really, really slowly until you get it perfectly right every time, and then work on making it go faster.  Sorry, it's the only way I know to do that one.

Re: playing lead

do you mean you hit the right note but also extra strings or do you just totally miss?
