Guitar Solo is one of the biggest topics for all guitarist and we are always looking out for ways to improve our solos. This video tutorial is created on the assumption that you know what a Major scale is and you already know how to play some cool licks.
In this video tutorial, we discuss 3 Guitar Solo Fundamentals that all guitarist should know.
1) Know the Chord Progression
Know the Key of the song - G Key
Know which Chords are used - G / / / G / / / Em / / / Em / / / C / / / C / / /
2) Know what notes form the Chord
G Chord - G note, B note, D note
Em Chord - E note, G note, B note
C Chord - C note, E Note G note
3) Land your solo on the safe zone
Since it's in Key of G, we will use G Major scale and licks
Whenever your licks stop, the last note will be the most evident note. It is recommended that you try to land the last note within the 3 notes of the particular chord.
