  • Hello GMC! This lesson is a solo in the style of power metal bands like Angra, Gamma Ray, Stratovarius, and others. It begins with a nice minor scale melody and then you have a very speed alternate picking part that includes some licks in the style of Yngwie Malmsteen.

    In this solo we will use E minor scale, E harmonic minor scale and also some arpeggios.

    This is the chord progression:

    Em – B – D –A – C – G – B – B

    I recorded 2 backing track loops (150 bpm & 130 bpm) for you to practice and improvisation.

    Enjoy the solo!
