GO TO: Andrew Wasson of Creative Guitar Studio answers a viewers question... Q: I'm an Intermediate guitarist with a decent ear, but a poor understanding of music theory. My 14 year old son keeps asking if I can learn this riff or that lick off of his favorite songs. And, after I learn the parts for him I'm left feeling at a slight loss as what to do with what I've just learned -- mostly in regard to the actual musical side of things. Can you explain what players need to know about, and especially what to look for, when studying recorded solos? - Cory -- Phoenix, AZ. A: Studying recorded solos is a vital part of learning the instrument because it allows players to see how lines are applied in an actual musical situation. Practicing; scales, arpeggios and modes is one thing, but applying it all to a situation actually helps players find out which notes and techniques are the most interesting to them for starting, or finishing phrases. For this video, I've composed a fairly basic solo that encompasses a set of chord changes from the key of C Minor. We'll study how the notes of the C Minor scale get applied with various techniques to create all of the solo's passages in the video lesson.
