Learn the tech­niques you need to know to be­come an all-round bet­ter player over a range of styles

For ev­ery An­gus and Mal­colm style ‘lead and rhythm’ pair­ing you en­counter, there are just as many lone axe-wield­ers – play­ers who fill out their sound with­out a band­mate cov­er­ing their backs. Jimi Hen­drix, Van Halen, Muse, The White Stripes and Royal Blood all spring to mind, but try­ing to create a big­ger sound is some­thing most play­ers will need to think about. This month, we’re tak­ing a look at tech­niques to help you fill out your sound. From richer chords and a funk rhythm work­out to cre­ative lead tech­niques that will help you break any solo­ing plateau. Turn the page and let’s get started!
