Rock Guitar Practice Solo
I hear from people all the time who are learning the guitar, and doing what they have been told to do. They are practicing away at all the different patterns, but have trouble making music out of those patterns.
If that describes you to any degree, than today’s video is for you.
In this video I give you a step-by-step walk through analysis of a solo I composed. The focus is on phrasing and development, which are EXTREMELY important elements of improvisation.
If you dig the solo (it’s played out in it’s entirety in the first minute of the lesson) then strap in and play along!
I tried to make it as fun as I could. It was a blast to record it, and I think it turned out nice.
The video includes practice tracks at 3 different speeds. Work it up if you’ve got the time and I think you’ll see the cohesiveness of the different ideas. Hopefully that will be something you can develop further in your own playing.
I wrote this rock guitar practice solo in a “rock” style, precisely because this type of a solo works over many different musical styles. It’s not specific to just rock. You can apply this style of playing to so many different styles.
As I always say, take these ideas and make them your own!
