Andrew Wasson of Creative Guitar Studio answers a viewers question…

Q: I’m working on my improvising right now and was hoping for a suggestion from you on setting up an soloing approach for playing better lead. I’m getting really bored of playing lead the same ways over and over. Is there some kind of an “Improvising Blueprint” that you could suggest? Almost like a step by step improvisation method for building solos over chord progressions? I hope you can help me with this.
Eric – Chatham, ENGLAND

A: If we want to be able to play good guitar solos, we need to be able to understand all of the different types of chord progressions that might present themselves to us on a regular basis. This means we’ll need to have the skills for analyzing chord harmonies and to determine which; scales, arpeggios, pentatonics, and modes work the best. With the Blueprint strategy outlined in this lesson you’ll be using an approach that starts with. #1). Being clear on the tonality of the chord movements. #2). Being able to anticipate the rhythmic and harmonic push that will be effective to highlight that harmony. And, #3). Developing melodic lines that target the “Shift” between each harmonic movement. Once you can learn to apply this strategy, your solos are going to have a better connection to the music!
