  • This rock 'n roll solo is a scary mix of artificial harmonics, two-note-per-srting speed picking and double stops.

    If you make sure to also study the rhythm guitar lesson for this tune - you will hopefully see how the solo and rhythm work together. A good way of analysing this is to study exactly which notes are played over which chord.

    You will often find that over an A5 powerchord it is common to play the note A (also called the root note) or the note E (called the "fifth" - when played over A). This could be described as an arpeggio approach - which simply mean playing the same note as in the backing chord.

    Another approach would be to play a scale over the backing chord - a scale usually includes chordal notes as well as some "extra" notes. This solo is based around the trust-worthy A minor pentatonic scale.

    Also be sure to check out our recently started and growing theory board which has some great scale/chord lessons!
