  • Hi GMC'ers! Today we will be doing a simple and cool way of playing the blues using stop time! :)

    Stop time solo involves small breaks that band makes and in those breaks you can insert licks. So this lesson has lots of nice licks. The goal of stop time however, is not to just insert random licks, but to connect them together in a meaningful way. I hope this lesson will help you in that area, and also help you increase your standard blues licks vocabulary.

    Scales:
    * E Minor Pentatonic
    * E Minor Blues

    Tuning:
    * Standard E

    Equipment:
    * Gretsch Brian Setzer Signature Nashville Model
    * Vintage Amp Room Fender and Vox emulators for rhythm, and Amplitube 3 for lead guitar
    * Sound: Tubescreamer, Compressor, Fender Blackface amp, 212 cab, and spring reverb emulations.

    If you have any questions:
    * Give feedback (upper-right-corner)
    * General Forum

    Have fun, and stay metal!/ Lale
