  • Hello GMC crowd and welcome to E Minor-Melodic Solo Lesson! :)

    Lets try to put a nice melodic solo over backing track, we're in key of E minor, tempo is very slow, 58bpm.

    To get best of the melody we go for chord's notes, still avoiding to play them in a row like regular arpeggios, so we have lots of string and note skipping. If you try to play some runs, like scale runs,
    you'll see that you're missing melody. So the key is to play kind a distance notes and not the closest ones.

    Vibrato is another important thing here so add some on every longer note.

    A small tip, try using an upstroke with angled pick to get more attack on certain notes.

    We're using few scales here, Em scale, Em pentatonic scale, E Phrygian and E harmonic minor, all these scales are from minor family as you can see.

    I added 2 harmonized guitars on few places, you'll find them only in real-tempo Backing Track.

    Have fun!
