Have a crack at this solo. Awesome fun to play and lots to great info to extract.
Hi Shane ,
Great … they don’t like double posting, under penalty of 3 (air ) guitars for the mods…but I think it’s nice that you put your solo under the lesson topic, and I understand that you also do it in your own video topic`s want to be able to look at it later or more looks… if you place a link under the video lessons to these in this topic than … solved
Thanks for the comments everyone. Much appreciated. Couple of tricky areas still to work on.
As I said, lots of great stuff to extract from this solo. Would highly recommend this one for those in the same learning space. Only been at this one for 2-3 days and am already getting a boatload of lick and phrasing ideas from it. A real gem.
And it’s essentially just following the chord progression with triad shapes, with little licks in between. Yet it sounds so great. Why don’t mine sound that good?
I suppose Henley and Browne’s superior composing talent may have something to do with it
Now… I’m off to go write me one of these masterpieces so I can retire and just play guitar all day
Thanks for the feedback.
The BT is just a solo BT off Youtube, imported into my DAW, then routed, along with the guitar/ amp output, into OBS ( video program) for filming.
Its an existing template I’ve set up, and use it for all my recording.
Soundwise, I use S-Gear amp sim suite , by Scuffham Amps. Awesome bit of software, and inexpensive.
Blues improv in D. Slower tempo this time. Seems like I’ve been playing upbeat stuff for a while, trying get that accuracy at speed. This ones more about holding the notes more. Trying to approach this one more with the mindset related by Justin in his Take It Easy solo lesson above. ie just follow the chords, and play some licks, rather than just the scales, triad shapes, framework etc. It all seem to come out anyway, so that tells me it must starting to sink into the subconscious, which is encouraging.
