  • Ahh finally a blues solo in the Guitar Masterclass! You have probaly heard it before and it's definately worth repeating: The blues is the foundation for most things you can think of on the electric guitar.

    So it doesn't matter if you are a beginner or a shredder - you will benefit from learning the licks in this solo! The beginner should (of course) start by picking the easiest licks. If you struggle hard, this could be a kick-off to start improvising - it definately was for me, when I started playing. I could never have done it without the pentatonic scale and a healthy dose of blues licks.

    By learning blues licks the "shredder" will get more "phrasing" and "feel" in his fast licks. In my opinion the best shred licks are the ones that end and start with a blues flavored lick!

    As always I have a very slight (barely audible) delay to fatten up the sound.
