Learning to play a guitar solo isn’t easy… and crafting your own solos isn’t any easier. It’s hard to figure out what notes to play that sound good -- or at the very least -- don’t sound boring.
That’s why I put together this 5-part starter series on how to play a blues guitar solo. If you missed the first two lessons, I recommend checking them out below...
In Lesson #3, you’re going to learn about what I call the ‘Flavor Injector’ -- better known as the Major Pentatonic Scale -- so you can add some really cool notes to your solos that will sound great, and might garner you some attention.
This is a valuable lesson to beginners and intermediate soloists alike, especially if you’re feeling stuck on the Blues scale or looking for something to spice up your solos.
[Teaser!] In Lesson #4 next week, I’m going to show you an easy trick to playing over chord changes -- so stay tuned!
Remember to grab the tabs for these major pentatonic riffs here.
