    In this lesson of "Writing a Solo" serial, we will be working on one very important aspect of playing which is use of Dynamics. With different dynamics you get wide range of expression in your solos and you should be thinking of it as much as you can, either when you're composing
    or just improvising a solo.

    Now, one thing is very connected with Dynamics in general and that's YOUR TONE! Bare in mind, if you dial high gain setting you won't be able to play with lot of dynamic simply because high gain already compress your tone and there is no much room to work on that. But with nice overdrive and clean sounds you'll enough freedom to experiment with dynamic, you can play very gently or extremely aggressively, everything will come out just as you want it.

    For this purpose I took a simple chord progression in key of Am with 100 bpm tempo and I used Guitar Rig 3, patch will be posted here later on.

    Have fun! :)
