Hey all.  Long time, first time.

I have been playing guitar for about 20 years but I really only play chords and things I can learn from tablature.

I would like to learn how to play solos and really become a better guitar player.  

Where should I go from here?  What books would everyone recommend?


Hey nick, I'm curious, what kind of thing do you have in mind with learning to play solos and become a better guitarist? Do you mean improvised solos or from transcriptions? What does a better guitar player mean? What makes the differentiation?
you have been playing for 12 years longer than me, but the only advice I can give for solos is to really learn and understand the scale and mode shapes (as well as their variants) and be able to find them anywhere when you look at the instrument. understanding the arpeggio shapes will also be handy.
