    This one's called Major Melodic Soloing. I would like to expand your minds and show you that we don't have to write a solo or improvise using the usual minor pentatonic scale only. In fact there are tons of other variety of sounds that you can get using different scales on the fretboard. Starting with the Major scale - it's happy feeling and care free type of sound makes your playing very colorful in a lot of ways. As usual, I'm a hybrid picker so pay close attention to my picking style and the legato that I do.

    Enjoy and learn each lesson part one at a time and not all at once.
