If you're trying to improve your lead guitar playing by studying scales, that's only half the picture. The best lead guitarists in rock, jazz, country, bluegrass and R & B base much of their improvisation and soloing on chords - even when they're playing single note solos. Sokolow shows you several chord based approaches to soloing and backup, covering several genres: arpeggios, country licks and fast flatpicking solos in country/bluegrass tunes like "Jambalaya;" solo and backup R&B like "People Get Ready" and "Just My Imagination;" Steve Cropper-style licks on "Dock of the Bay" and "Under the Boardwalk," Django-style solos on swing tunes like "Avalon." You'll also learn basic music theory as Fred shows you how to find chords up and down the fretboard and connect them in chord families. Tab/music booklet as PDF file. Intermediate. 90 min.
