  • Hey GMC'ers! Anyone, beginners, intermediate, or advanced players who want to compose a solo that people cannot forget will be taught in this lesson.

    The lights turn on, and there's a guitarist playing his famous solo, and people starts to sing along... along a guitar solo! I'm sure, in this very moment, lots of great solos are coming to your mind: Slash standing over the piano perhaps? So... here, I'm going to show you how to compose a very cool solo just by following a few important tips.

    -Create a nice chords progression
    -Use techniques you've already mastered
    -If you want to shred it, do not turn it into an exercise
    -Compose your solo for everyone, not only for musicians.
    (Indepth explanations in video 1)

    In this lesson, I just followed these tips and I created a nice and melodic solo. At the beginning I played the chords I used for the first section of the solo.

    140 bpm

    * D Minor
    * B Minor

    * Eb - Ab - Db - Gb - Bb - Eb
    (From thick to thin string)
    * Down 1/2 step

    POD xt (to record) - my presets on my board ;)

    If you have any questions:
    * Give feedback (upper-right-corner)
    * My Personal Board
    * General Forum

    Stay close!/ Lian
