  • Hi

    As you can read above in the lesson description, this theme is from the solo album I have done with a friend from Croatia - Dean Clea Brkic.

    I was thinking of making some good vibrato exercise and ended up playing this one. I hope you will find it useful. Make sure to get consistent vibrato and enough sustain for all long notes. You will probably need a good concentration in order to make smooth and nice connection between notes. If you break a single one you will lose the whole effect. These type of solos are sometimes more difficult to execute properly than some very fast stuff. There is nothing that much technical in this one but the feel and control have to be on an extreme high level if you want to make this solo sound acceptable.

    There is one faster G major scale played with alternate picking and some sensitive bendings and slides to pay attention on. The whole solo is played in G major scale but notice when the chord changes to E minor, you need to think of the new root (E minor scale). The same applies for C major where your scale is C Lydian and D major for D Mixolydian. That means that you are actually playing G major all the way but the modes are changing automaticaly as the chord changes in the background.

    I hope you will like this simple melodic solo and don't forget to ask anything you want to know on forum or PM.

    Happy soloing :)
