Gui­tar so­los. We all want to play them, right? And we prob­a­bly all wish we were bet­ter play­ers too. Yet, ex­actly what makes a bet­ter player and soloist is highly de­bat­able. Should you shred, or do you aim for some­thing sim­pler? Do you opt for fa­mil­iar pen­ta­tonic scales, or would some­thing more tune­ful be bet­ter suited to the mu­sic? This month we’ve pro­duced a se­lec­tion of les­sons that will help you write more melodic so­los and de­velop your feel. By tak­ing a look at the styles of some of rock’s finest feel play­ers we’ll help you take a more thought­ful and tune­ful ap­proach to your so­los. Turn the page to get started.
