This week's GuitarBlog covers the basics of learning how to play guitar solos.
When it comes to learning the basic principles of using any scale to play a solo we need to have decent skills with; familiarity of the scale pattern on the neck, physical technique for being able to play the scale, as well as, a relaxed application of; licks, scale fragments and melodic phrases.
Additionally, we need to have a good enough ear for making different types of melodic resolutions into specific scale tones that properly affect the chord of the moment. Well placed use of scale tones including; chord tones, suspensions and scale extensions will make a big difference in your solos.
Of course, this is obviously a lot of stuff to develop, but I'm going to break it all down into a system that you can start working on right away to help you learn the basics of ,"Lead Guitar Soloing."
