Hello all wink.gif

I can play the most of Intermediate solos.
And I can improvising too.
The thing is.. I dont know what i do there.
I just try to feel witch note I must use. huh.gif

Sure I can play guitar solos, alternate/sweep picking and this kind of things.(slow but clear)
But i learned all step by step from your videos and dont know what I really do there.
Its good to play this lessons but i want to know WHY this notes, scales and chords ....


Question: What is the RULE of a solo? How to play harmonic solo to the chords?

What are good notes and what bad notes?

First I thougt: Just play notes from the scale and on every chord-change be at the basic tone.
( So if the chord is start to G, just play some notes from the scale and end with the the G note...)

But all what I play is boring. Just notes up and down...
What must I do to play a real solo? How to work it out? With note(s) on a chord?

I give an example.

The chords: C | G/B | Am | F | 4/4

With scale here to play and why? With notes sounds good on that chords`?

i think you need to study more about theory cause i see you are playing and you dont know what
you are playing you should start to learn the scales like Majors/minors/pentatonics and others

I find Andrew's Theory lessons now and that is what im looking for.
I thought there is a simply rule for melodic and scales.

But now I have to work hard now.
I try5 to learn all that stuff. So stay tuned

Also be aware that simple exercises up and down the scale are not enough. Various combinations of patterns must be went through to be able to make a some fine soloing.
