Solid rhythm chops may get you the gig but it's your soloing chops that gets you the spotlight and the opportunity to electrify the audience with your musicality. Creativity, technique, and vocabulary are the essential skills you'll need to master the art of improvisation and develop into a great soloist. The video guitar lessons in this core course will equip you with the requisite tools and guidance to take your soloing skills to the next level.
Play Blues Guitar 6: Soloing Approaches is organized into 2 sections. In the first section, you'll work on learning new concepts like playing off of the root, and adding chromatic notes to your solos. In the second section of Performance Studies you will play your way through a mixed bag of essential blues solos.
When you've completed the lessons here in Soloing Approaches, you'll find more lessons focused on soloing in Soloing Principles, also a Play Blues Guitar 6 core course.
The educators demonstrate all of the key examples over jam tracks (where and when applicable) to simulate a real-world application, in a musical context.
