  • Hi GMC-ers!

    Welcome to my new lesson, in which I would like to give some ideas on how we can use an E minor scale in three positions and how we can switch between them! Some parts of this solo reminds me a bit to George Lynch’s style. I guess his playing is unique.

    The key of this lesson is E minor. We use three E minor scales. At the first the seventh and the eleventh fret

    The solo begins in E minor at the 7th fret and after some slided notes we continue it with some open string blues patterns in the first and the second mode henceforward in E minor. Then this part is closed at the 7th fret again. The third part is at the 12th fret. Here we use mainly the E blues pentatonic scale.

    And in the last part a simple melody playing from a 7th fret E minor scale again.

    I hope you’ll enjoy this lesson!

    The lesson contains the following techniques:




    -palm muting

    -alternate picking


    Good practicing!
