Hey Folks!

I am Chandra Maharzan from Kathmandu, Nepal.

Heres my short video introduction. Sorry about my English. Its my third language so pronunciation is kind of not that good. smile.gif




What is this about?

So, this is simply a solo lesson. I know many of us just want to dive in and start playing cool solos rather than sit there and study theory and practice scales all the time. But this doesn't mean that you should skip learning theories. If you can learn the theories behind each solo you do, that would be the best thing as you can implement them on your own solos quite easily. This lesson is for those who want to break through the regular theory practice sessions and try some easy solo.

I was working on the Piano Ballad Collaboration by Daniel Realpe and came out with this solo. And then I was also looking to start an SI lesson. This couldn't have come at a better time. I want to thank Daniel Realpe for providing the backing tracks.

Anyway, this solo is based on Eb Major Scale, portrayed as one of the most complex scales. Here is a chart for the scale on the neck.

How does it sound?

This is the complete lesson and how it sounds with the backing track. Tempo is 129 bpm.



Now lets break this into 4 parts and make it simple.

Part I

What do I have to say about this lesson?

Well, I think this is a fairly straight forward and easy lesson. There are few things that I might have missed. The focus here should be timing as it is not starting exactly at the first beat and there are pauses which might tricky for some of you. For variations, I have included triplets as well which can get really confusing. I am still struggling with it mainly which switching back and forth between regular 8ths/16ths and triplets. There are slides, hammer ons and pull offs which shouldn't be that hard. There are some stretches and your pinky might need some exercise if you aren't so comfortable with it yet. You should also improve Alternate Picking with this lesson. For slow licks like this, vibrato is often king. If you are not comfortable with the speed at first, practice on a slower tempo (backing included) and then speed up to the regular tempo when you are comfortable.

Anyway, I hope you liked my first lesson. I will look forward to any questions you might have and I will try my best to answer them as precisely as possible. Also, I would love to get some feedback about my first try as a Student Instructor.

Good Luck to you all!



Cheers!
Chandra

Well deserved man! Nice job and congrats on your first lesson smile.gif

"Think of a guitar solo as a paragraph. You need a clear beginning, a middle, and an end. Look at musical phrases like sentences, and make sure you break them up using punctuation—or space. You pause naturally when conversing, right? If you don't, you'll bore the listener. The same thing will happen with your audience if your solo is one dimensional. You'll wear them out and lose their attention." —Tom Principato
