Solo Improvisation
My first lesson so might be some mistakes! Am Pentatonic scale Go up and down this scale a few times to practice the shape then you can add bends, slides, hammer ons, pull offs to make it sound a lot better. Another technique is to skip parts of this scale to make it sound more random and improvised.
e-------------------------------------------5---8----
b----------------------------------5---8-------------
g--------------------------5---7---------------------
d----------------5---7-------------------------------
a---------5---7--------------------------------------
e-5---8----------------------------------------------
I recommend using short tunes instead of long everlasting solos. For example: b= Bend
e---------------------------------------------
b---------------------------------------------
g---------------------5---7b9---5-------------
d-----------5---7-------------------7---------
a---------------------------------------------
e---------------------------------------------
This is a short tune using the same Am pentatonic scale. Lots of these together, with breaks, will make a catchy solo. If you want a solo for a song in A use this one. However if you want one in G, B, F ETC all you need to do is move it up to the corresponding frets. For example: low e---1(f)--2(f#)--3(G)--4(G#)--5(A)-- ETC So if I want to make a solo for a song in G it would be:
e-------------------------------------------3---6----
b----------------------------------3---6-------------
g--------------------------3---5---------------------
d----------------3---5-------------------------------
a---------3---5--------------------------------------
e-3---6----------------------------------------------
Good luck soloing.
