Most guitar players seek to improve their lead playing by ‘learning new skills’ and / or ‘practicing’ the mechanics of their existing skills. Certainly these are good things to do, but most players totally overlook (or least do not spend enough time on) learning how to ‘use’ their existing skills, creatively, consistently, and fluently.
Unfortunately, most guitar players struggle with their lead guitar playing for many years because they don’t understand the things that would really enable them to create consistently great guitar solos and songs with the skills and knowledge they already have. Instead, most simply try to acquire new skills and do not seek to go deeper by learning more about the skills they already have but have not yet refined.
In the lead guitar lesson video below, I’ll show you how to ‘use’ what you know and how to get cool sounds and emotion out of playing very few notes on the guitar. The more you learn how to get a lot from little, the easier it is for you to get a lot from a lot.
When creating or improvising guitar 메이저놀이터 solos, most guitar players rely on ‘playing new notes’ (or more notes) in order to express themselves. This rarely works well.
The key to creating, improvising and playing great guitar solos is not ‘what’ you play, it’s ‘how you play it’. Having great guitar phrasing is infinitely more valuable than having other great guitar skills. There are many ways to learn guitar phrasing, but the most important is to be able to play one note extremely well. Another great thing to practice is to make many small variations on a small single phrase. You want to focus not on what to play, or what the note options are, but instead on what you can do with a small phrase. How much emotion and interest you can squeeze out of something small.
