Guitar Soloing Tip
Due to the demands of schedule I am finding it increasingly hard to supply you with guitar lessons and tips that you have come to expect in this newsletter. As a result, I have brought on board another guitarist to help me assemble these videos. I’d like to introduce Sean Rohrer to all of you. Sean has 20 years of experience as a guitarists musician and mix engineer. He and his bands have toured extensively and shared the stage with acts like Sleeping with Sirens, Soulfly and Static X.
I have reviewed this first lesson assembled my Sean and I think you’ll find it to be excellent. Here is a brief summary:
There are certain guitar techniques which are instantly recognizable, timeless sounds. Pentatonic double stop rhythm playing is one of those techniques. Jimi Hendrix, Stevie Ray Vaughn, Pearl Jam, Lynyrd Skynyrd and countless others have all used this to write classic songs which still hold up decades later. Using mostly one shape, moved strategically to different places, you can outline a chord progression while combining lead and rhythm playing, all at the same time! The prerequisite techniques for this kind of playing are: pentatonic scales, barring, hammer on’s and pull off’s. See the video below for more information:

You should hear my first assignment vs. those who didn’t use Video Surgeon. It could be the difference between a passing grade and a failing grade for me. You are changing the way people learn!
