Guitar Emerge - Beginner Guitar Soloing Ideas (Horizontal 1-3-5)


Following up on our Solo Fundamentals lesson, in this lesson we share a simple formula on how to locate our 1-3-5 for major chord and 1-3b-5 for minor chord.

Major chord 1-3-5 (PLUS 4 PLUS 3)

  1. Locate the root note on your guitar

  2. Plus 4 frets from root note to get the third note

  3. Plus 3 frets from third note to get fifth note

Example G Major Chord

G Note is on 1st string 3rd fret (1)

3rd fret plus 4 frets is 7th fret which is your B Note (3)

7th fret plus 3 frets is 10th fret which is your D Note (5)

Minor chord 1-3b-5 (PLUS 3 PLUS 4)

  1. Locate the root note on your guitar

  2. Plus 3 frets from root note to get the third note

  3. Plus 4 frets from third note to get fifth note

Example A Minor Chord

A Note is on 1st string 5th fret (1)

5th fret plus 3 frets is 8th fret which is your C Note (3b)

8th fret plus 4 frets is 12th fret which is your E Note (5)

Using the above method to identify our 1-3-5, we then create some simple lead lines.

Have fun trying them out!
