Hi Gab. I saw you asked these questions to another person to start their thread, so I thought I would just jump right to this step. I look forward to your reply.

- How many time have you been playing guitar?
I've been playing for 20 years.

- Favorite guitarists, bands and musicians.
Led Zeppelin, Bob Marley, Fleetwood Mac. Guitarists: Peter Frampton, Peter Tosh, Jimi Hendrix, Don Felder/Joe Walsh on Hotel California.

- What are your guitar goals?
I simply want to be able to play lead guitar improvised solos

- How would you like to you see yourself in 5 years (related to music and guitar)?
I am currently a lead singer in a funk/blues/rock cover band, so I'd like to also be a lead guitarist/vocalist in 5 years.

- How many time can you play guitar each day?
Every day for at least 20 minutes.

- Do you have playing live experience?
Somewhat. Singing, yes, but only acoustic/rhythm stuff on guitar. Ive never lead solo improvised live.

- Which are your strong and weak points with guitar?
I am good at playing rhythm guitar, so that's my strength. I absolutely cannot improvise at all which is my weakness.

- What do you know about music theory?
Basically nothing. I know what a "third" is or "fifth" etc. I think...

- Can you record videos of you playing?

- Share here audios and videos that reflect your current playing.

My pre-written solo begins at the 3 minute mark. This song is an original.

Hi mate! Great to find this thread here! smile.gif

Your song sounds good! I like your style!

I think that it's a good plan to work on technique and improvisation during the first weeks here. The first task will be very simple, you'll have to work on the following lesson: https://www.guitarmasterclass.net/ls/BB-King-Blues/

The idea is that you work on each lick, focusing on timing, dyamics, bending and vibrato. Practice the lesson over the backing track and record a video of your progress in around 7 days.

You'll notice that the solo is based on B minor pentatonic scale. If you don't know this scale please check these lessons:
