Solo ex­aM­Ple

Guitar Techniques - - LESSON: HARD ROCK -

This solo is an amal­ga­ma­tion of tech­niques and licks drawn from the styles of Dave, Adrian and Jan­ick. The most man­age­able ap­proach is to learn the licks in two to four-bar chunks and prac­tise them slowly and ac­cu­rately be­fore con­nect­ing it all to­gether and bring­ing it up to speed. [Ba3rs 1-2] This is a bluesy A mi­nor Pen­ta­tonic lick played as a six-note phrase wh3ich dis­places through the 16th-note rhythm. Bend the third string with the3third fin­ger and play the 5th fret notes with your first fin­ger. [BaSrOsL3O-4©] AÈlsÁ

o b¼ ased on the A mi­nor Pen­ta­tonic scale this has the ex­tra B and F notes sug­gest­ing A Nat­u­ral mi­nor (A-B-C-D-E-F-G). [Bars 5-8] For these uni­son bends you should use your third fin­ger to bend the notes on the sec­ond string to the same pitch as the notes on the first. [Bars 9-10] Here we see fast pull-offs with the sec­ond and third fin­gers on the 8th and 7th frets and the first fin­ger at the 5th fret. The fi­nal ascending pas­sage in bars 11-12 is played along the first string us­ing a com­bi­na­tion of legato and al­ter­nate pick­ing; this part will ben­e­fit from some metronome prac­tice, grad­u­ally build­ing up the tempo.
