  • Welcome to the Phrasing and Dynamics lesson 2 !

    Simple yet full of details (articulation and dynamics) solo, that will teach you how make your playing more interesting, while using not much of notes (based on basic A-minor scale). It will help you discover tonal possibilties and ways to shape the sound. At the same time we deny most common quote "I can't play descent solo, because I don't know scales". It's not the scales that are critical to make your solo sound like pro. It's all about to be able to play just a few notes in many different ways, using a wide palette of availabe dynamics and articulation techniques.
