In this lesson I’ve decided to part from writing a solo “in the style of” and then teaching it to you note for note. I’m not sure how good of a lesson that is in the long term. When you’re learning a new instrument, there will always be a fair amount of memorization in the beginning… but most people can never make it past the memorization part… they learn it.. and can replicate it, but then ask, “now what?”. So I’d like to start explaining how the boundaries for guitar solos and rhythm work so that you can achieve that (as Oprah says) “a-Ha moment” (good Lord did I just quote Oprah?). B.B. is a good one to start with because I get a lot of requests from people wanting to know more about his style.. but also because it’s fairly easy to explain and understand. So please let me know if these kinds of lessons are more / less valuable than showing you note for note how to play a solo. The reality is it really takes both kinds of lessons, but it’s always good for me to switch things up from time to time.
