Get out of the pentatonic rut…
Learning to play lead guitar, for most guitarists, begins with the minor pentatonic scale. The shape is easy to play, our index finger can stay in the same fret, and mostly, it never seems to sound bad. But there comes a point for every guitarist that they realize the pentatonic scale is a dead end. You wind up stuck in a box, regurgitating the same riffs over and over with no regard for the chords you are playing over.
In order to be an effective and creative lead guitarist you must have a strong understanding of the relationship between the licks you are playing and the chords you are playing over. Lead Guitar DNA will show you a clear approach to understanding this relationship. This program explains the need to understand 2 string arpeggios to master lead guitar. Lead Guitar DNA 2 extends this program with Phrygian 2 string arpeggios. Break out of the pentatonic box and master the fretboard.
Don’t forget your rhythm chops!
