  • Hi GMC-ers, welcome to my new lesson, this time we are doing some atmospheric ballad soloing. :)

    I recently transferred to new audio hardware and using Guitar Rig 3 for guitar modeling starting from this lesson. If anybody is interested in getting the GR3 preset for this lesson (or other future lessons) post a request on my board.

    Since the lesson is slow-paced, I'm giving some extra backing tempos with the increase of 2bpm per backing for more effective practicing.

    This lesson is in the key of G minor, and we are using the progression bellow:

    | Gm | Cm7 Dm7 |

    | Gm | Cm7 Dm7 |

    | Gm | Bb major F major |

    | Gm | Bb major F major | Gm |

    Tempo is 60 bpm.

    In this lesson focus is on the feel for the slow rhythm, accenting the notes on the beat, legato, mixed AP and EP picking, and some arpeggiated lines as well. We are using some quantuplet notes as well in the middle of the solo to add a flowing motion to the solo.

    If you have any questions about this lesson feel free to ask, and I will respond ASAP.

    Have fun playing! :)
