Start breaking down other people's solos with this stuff to learn new ways to use these concepts.
Start using each technique immediately after learning it so it'll stay with you.
Here in the first video, we're going to go over the crucial first step to soloing that lots of guitar players surprisingly overlook.
And in the 2nd step, we'll be going over target notes.
Most lead guitar books will skip ahead to licks or scales after telling you a little about target notes, if at all, but RHYTHM is one of the most important parts. I'll cover that in detail right here.
Next I'll talk about one of the crucial parts of making a listenable solo: mixing fast and slow parts together.
Next I'll be going over the secrets of using intervals and then putting them together to make arpeggios so you can make your licks sound even more musical.
Next up is my in-depth discussion of modes and how they relate to other common scales you know like pentatonic or major/minor scales.
Another common mistake many guitar players will make is that everything is in single notes, or that they don't play two or more notes together to make "double stops." I'll be showing you exactly how to use this technique over anything you come across.
Next I'll be covering the last two steps of the 11 step soloing method with how I play over country and jazz progressions. This will help you pick up a few tricks to transform your guitar style into another genre!
Finally, I'll go over one of the most popular guitar solos ever with this one from Steely Dan's "Reeling In The Years."
