I always go to music stores and hear people playing a bunch of cool solo show off jazzy stuff.

Whats the easiest way to learn this? I dont know much obviously.

Also, if anyone knows some good theory to study thats printable I would like to know :]

i hate people who play loudly in music shops.....dont play loudly


for a start, learn some scales. just play around on them and see what sounds good. just practice improvising by yourself or over some progressions.

Seriously, you're so HXC because you can play 5th chords in Drop D and throw in a pinch harmonic.

I often crank out some sweet improv on the minor pentatonic, usually key of A or B, sometime way up there in the key of E too... It doesn't really matter what key your in if your playing by yourself.

I was shown the minor pentatonic scale 3 years ago, and I'm still getting better at it to this day. Just find any scale you like that sounds good, and keep playing it till you sound good. Eventually, you'll be able to pick up any guitar, any time, and sound kinda pro!

When you're trying out an amp that you're going to be shelling out 1000 bucks for, you are obligated by good, common sense and legitimized by the money you're putting into the business to try out the amp at the levels you will actually be playing it.

It sounds rude, but if you're too worried about trying to be polite to worry about actually testing out the amp that you're going to be putting your money into, there's a good chance you'll walk away having wasted your money.

Not really, just look up some scales and practice them till you can play them really quick.

Then just start missing out notes and making up little licks....

Just learn to play the guitar

Seriously, there's no "special stuff" you can learn that makes you any better at showing off or impressing people. You impress people by playing well, and you play well by practicing and studying...it's as simple as that.

That's a surefire way to set yourself on completely the wrong road. If you approach scales as boxes then you'll have a hard time shaking them off when the time comes to learn them properly. If you learn them the right way from the outset then you can use boxes as navigational aids and reference points as you progress, but to start with them is counter-productive.

If you want to learn theory the first things you have to do are learn the notes on the fretboard and learn the major scale...because you can't actually LEARN any of the other stuff without them.
