  • Hi Guys,

    Welcome to my lesson No. 74 called "Emotional soloing over a Ballad"

    When it comes to slow emotional soloing a lot of guitar players tend to rush a bit. But it sounds so much better when sometimes the phrasing is a bit behind the beat to create more dramatic.

    So in this lesson I demonstrate the idea of this technique by adding a lot of cool phrasing.

    Have fun!!

    The structure of the Jam track:

    VERS 0:01-0:36
    | Gm | Gm/F | Eb | % |
    | Gm | Gm/F | Cm7 | Dsus4 D |

    PRE CHORUS 0:37-0:52
    | Bb | Bb/Ab | Gsus4 | G |

    CHORUS 0:53-1:25
    | Cm Eb | F Gm|
    | Cm Eb | F Dm7#5 Eb Gm|
    | Cm Eb | F | Eb | % |

    Have fun! ;-)
