Hi There Trond!

This is my current progress towards the rock solo. This was recorded without any backing so the timing was all in my head. Its a bit off, but timing isnt really the focus at the moment. I am trying to get the sounds right. I think my bending is improving, but still not quite right. I sometimes get it really right and sometimes am sharp or flat.

Im also having a lot of trouble controlling the noise of the guitar, perhaps my distort settings are too high. Its so sensitive....
Almost got the harmonic this time too. I usually miss it, but sometimes get it right (it was only half right this time). I guess I need lots of practice.

I have not yet mastered the octave run, its my next target. I hope to have a complete attempt with the backing track up soon. Please let me know what you think so far and if you have any ideas to help me deal with keeping the guitar quiet when I want it to be I would really appreciate it.

Once I get the noise under control I will record it with a backing (the backing really does help hide it, but I don't want to rely on that).

Hi There Trond,

I have recently been listening to you're two rock solo lessons and am totally taken by you're expressive and powerful playing style. I am currently learning the beginner rock solo in e minor, I will post my efforts when I can play it a little better... im working on the vibrato at the moment. I have managed to nail the bending tho (as my left fingertips can attest.... they are nearly numb haha)

I think you're style is the closest here to what I want to be able to play. I like heavier music like metal and heavier rock, and LOVE solos (up until now I have only really practiced solo peices). I have not focused much on rhythm tho, because my old squier strat just could not cut it (sounded quite crap). but now that I have my lovely schecter I can make the sounds I struggled in vain to make before and now really enjoy practicing rhythm.

I have many questions for you if you have time to answer them. I am wondering when you started out what path did you take? I now have up to 1.5 hours per day to practice and I'm just not sure how to best lay out my time. I am joining a beginner band here in japan, and really want to become as useful as possible quite quickly. They also like rock and heavy metal, so I think ill fit right in. I'm not a total beginner, but you're beginner rock solo challenges me, particularly the legatto part at the end.

Anyway I just want to say I really think you're style has something very special about it. I really enjoy listening to it My path is just starting, but I am committed and will practice every day. My dream is to become able to express myself with the guitar.

I have to get back to class now. See you later!

Hi all!

My name is Lochlainn, but please call me Loki.

I have been lurking on this site for a while and have decided to get serious about Guitaring. I am from Australia, but am currently living in Tokyo (Japan). Im sure many of you know that Japan has an awesome guitar scene. One of my many goals in this country is to learn the guitar. This site will be one of my secret weapons haha. Skill level and knowledge wise I am a beginner. But I do fully intend to change that here wink.gif So far I have been awestruck by the quality and diversity of lessons on this site.

Looking forward to getting to know all of you!
