  • Hello GMC!! In this lesson we will study a Rock/Metal solo of my own. I recorded this solo for the song “Malezas” of my band called Cirse ( This is a very dramatic solo in the style of Ozzy Osbourne’s No More Tears lp solos (featuring Zakk Wylde) and also Zakk’s Black Label Society stuff .

    In the solo you can here some of my most important influences (such as Zakk Wylde, John Petrucci etc.). I find it great to practice bendings, vibrato and alternate picking.

    I used F sharp Minor and Pentatonic Minor scales to make the solo. The tempo is 85 bpm and the time signature 4/4

    Chord progression:

    F#m - F#m – E – E – D – D - F#m - F#m – E – E – D - D

    In the backing tracks section you can find the original backing track, some metronome tracks at others speeds and you can also listen to the complete song.

    I hope you enjoy it and you get inspired to create your own great solos!
