Nice solo! I played the last minute of the song while listening to the solo, definitely fit the song. It's a very heavy bend solo, most of the bends were on point except for maybe 1 at the beginning around 0:11. Keep it up!
This solo is definitely one of my favourite's from A7X. Tension also has an amazing solo.
Sounds super good, how long did this take you to learn? Did you learn it by ear or use a tab? 3rd question is are you going to learn that last part where it fades out? That part sounds great too
A lot of great advice people have shared. I've gotten in and out of guitar playing for years but I always come back to it. Recently I wasn't having anymore fun on guitar/music so I set aside a bunch of time on a weekend and wrote down some goals that were both fun and reasonable for my skill...
Well they do change tunings in a bunch of songs so it's not the just the bottom string that changes for some songs. Most solos wouldn't use the 6th string much or at all but it's more of a matter of being able to play rhythm guitar for when there isn't any lead guitar parts.
I'm guessing that is from his Fretboard Mastery book. I have that one so I can review it again, thanks for sharing Yeah I remember the octave trick and the other trick is a note on 1 string is the same as the next string 7 frets up (exception with 2nd string of course)
I think for me being able to very quickly identify what note I'm playing when fretting a note so when I do improvisation or songwriting then I can be more efficient and precise with what I'm doing.
I already know the E standard tuning 6th and 5th and 1st string notes pretty well. But I'll have...
I didn't know he recorded most solos in standard. Wonder what he does for playing the solos live? Maybe just plays it in the guitar tuning that the rhythm guitar is tuned in.
And yeah I've played in a lot of Drop D tuning so remembering the the 6th and 4th string are the same note helps a lot.
