If you're like most guitarists who have tried to learn to solo, you most likely learned a scale shape, a few techniques and a lick or 2 and assumed you'd soon enough be soloing up a storm.
In reality, you most likely hit the wall.
What's the wall?
The wall is when you believe you have all the necessary ingredients to solo but no matter how you combine them you don't seem to be able to play anything resembling a REAL SOLO.
(Don't feel bad, this is how I feel when I try my hand at cooking in the kitchen. I may have the ingredients and instructions but I can't make a cake like they show in the book to save my life!)
The traditional method of learning to solo is INHERENTLY FLAWED.
I call it the 'hope method' because you take a scale, a technique, a guitar lick and hope it will result in you playing great solos.
Unfortunately, this is how most people try to learn to solo, and even scarier is how the vast majority of guitar teachers try to teach their students.
Yep, it’s not just you… It’s teachers as well! They will throw scales, techniques, and licks at you and just HOPE that you'll be able to solo!
Sounds crazy, huh? So why is this the norm?
Because the reality is most people teach the way that they were taught. A small percentage of guitarists are naturally musical and are able to take these raw ingredients and bake great solos with minimal effort.
I don't know about you, but I don't like the idea of HOPING to become a good lead guitarist…HOPING that I will have natural musical ability.
It drives me CRAZY that this is the way soloing is taught! So, I set out to change that by creating a system that takes you from clueless newbie to competent lead guitarist in the fastest time possible.
