  • Hello everyone, welcome to my new lesson, this time we will do some classic rock soloing. This lesson is inspired to some extent by the band Jethro Tull and the classic rock album "Rock Island".

    The solo is a fairly simple one, using 120bpm tempo, and G minor key throughout. We will use both G minor pentatonic scale and G minor scale in this solo. This solo involves some bending, some vibrato, AP picking, and diagonal and horizontal movements through the CAGED positions.

    The melodies and sequences in this solo should function nicely over any kind of diatonic backing, so by learning them you will have additional usable tools to use with your improvising as well.

    Have fun! :)
