In this lesson we are going to work on connecting different scale positions, so you can learn how to use it efficiently while improvising.
I wanted this little musical piece to have a lighter sounding intro and a more powerful sounding ending, so I had to build up everything. We are going to work on building up the solo by the use of different scale positions and dynamics. If you feel that you are not really a master of dynamics, don't hesitate to check out my other lesson called Dynamics of Playing, there are some pretty interesting and useful things you can learn.
In order to create a lighter sounding intro, I used some pretty cool tricks called volume swells! It's a great thing you can use when you are playing some longer notes, but also when you are playing a bit faster! Play with it for a while and try to achieve a gradual increase in volume. Add some nice vibrato on top of it and it will sound great!
The best way to connect different scale positions is by using slides. The only thing you should know is each and every scale position, then you just have to slide up and down the neck to achieve some great effects. Experiment with playing same notes at different strings! They sound very different and that's something you should use a lot, so try to get more familiar with it. For instance, you can play the same phrase at two different positions. It's the same phrase, but it will be interesting because it sounds different!
