How To Solo On The Guitar

Over the past few years, I?ve created a number of guitar soloing lessons here on WholeNote. Although I plan on publishing more in the near future, I think these ones are all on the same wavelength. The lessons are simplistic and useful, easy to absorb.

They are written mainly for the intermediate rock guitarist on his way to being advanced. I think you?ll find this information immediately helpful in your soloing. I?ve poured countless hours out into these lessons.

I love to solo on the guitar. I spent a lot of time in the past figuring out the easiest ways to open my soloing up. I believe more than most of those studies are here in these lessons.

Work smarter, not harder.
