Great topic Ivan - many people spend hours and hours trying to improve their lines - and all they really need is to play a little less. Good illustration and spoken instructions.
sounds awesome, and indeed a bit of breath in between the licks gives the licks more importance
It's very soothing, Ivan. Important concept, not stuffing every note into every available space, all the time. Nice lesson.
Very important topic Ivan! It really makes or breaks the solo.
Great lesson, man, definitely important topic!
very important topic ivan!
This is a really good lesson Ivan ..... Breathing is a really important aspect of lead guitar that is sometimes ignored.
this reminds me of Marty friedman's words: "Make every note count, cause it does"
Breathing is very important, it gives playing a natural feel. Very good lesson Ivan
yes. let the solo breathe.
cool lesson man! very useful
Very useful. Using it now. Thanks!
Nice lesson Ivan! These are very important and useful things indeed!
Love the tone! Beautiful Ivan. Practicing this now!
Have you ever felt like you were stuck in a rut while improvising? Let me introduce you to improvisation concepts which will open your eyes, so you'll never ever have to repeat the same thing twice in your playing!
In this lesson we are going to work on "breathing". This concept could be simply explained as making pauses between phrases. When we talk, we make small pauses between sentences, words, etc. It sounds completely natural to us, so we can use it in music as well.
Instead of noodling around all the time, remember to stop playing every once in a while. It will definitely create a good effect!
You can make small pauses (1-2 beats) between phrases, or big ones (a couple of bars). You can also play a single note and then leave a lot of space after. It will bring back the listener's attention after a couple of bars of playing without any pauses. That's a cool trick you can always use!
Keep in mind that what you play is as important as what you don't play!
I am sure you'll learn this concept in no time!
