Curious:
Whenever you tell someone you play the guitar, they always go on 'Can you play a song for me?'
What do you play them?

Hey everyone, I'm Max from Holland.
After seeing some previews I thought I found what I was looking for for a long time: a step-by-step walkthrough to great soloing. I hope I won't be disappointed.

I've played the guitar since I was 7, that makes 10 years now. I think I have the right to say I have some talent. (bragging ahead) I am considered (by the guitar teacher, who is really good by the way) as one of the two best guitarists at my music school. I can read and find notes at an amazing speed; I learn difficult songs by heart in a matter of days; I have a very good hearing and know where to find every note on the fretboard, chords as well.
I also took up the lute two years ago, which I have mastered in a very short time, all due to my excellent reading of notes and tablature.

But why am I not happy with my playing and have I decided to sign up? I feel as if I'm not 'playing'. I can read and play music very well, everyone around is impressed and, well, jealous. But I cannot improvise decently. I have minor knowledge of the pentonic scale; that's all. I can improvise poorly on Greensleeves. I desperately want to work on that and play along with the tv.
The lute music I told about revolves a lot around improvising. With my current ability I can indeed jingle a little around some chords, it sounds nice, but not 'real'.


Well, that's all for now. Maybe you know some lessons I really should check out?

Cheers and lots of kind regards,

Max
