After you sign up for my Lead Guitar Course I’ll send you a new video lesson each week along with tab and other lesson materials. Why am I doing this? When you learn what I’m teaching in this free course you’ll notice a radical improvement in your lead guitar playing skills. With this success I believe that you’ll continue your progress by studying my other programs.
The lead that is performed at the beginning of this video includes a sample of what is taught in this program – a guitar lick, a pattern, an arpeggio, and a lead guitar melody. By the end of this lesson you will learn how to play this lead and how it was composed of these parts. A rhythm track is included to back you up. Click here to sign up for the course, receive this lesson’s practice materials, and four more free lessons over the next month. There is no obligation to buy, no down payment, and no credit card fee. Free means free.
First you must learn one simple pattern of notes. This basic shape will help you to memorize note names and to visualize lead patterns. You’ll be amazed at how quickly this simple shape will unlock areas of the fretboard that are currently a mystery. In this first lesson I show a couple of very simple licks. I want you to see how these licks fit into the 6 note pattern. Each lick, and the position of each lick in the pattern, doesn’t change – regardless of where you play the pattern. This may sound complicated. It’s really simple as you’ll see by studying the exercises in this lesson.
On the other hand, as you watch the video you may be thinking, “This is way too basic.” Just hang in there; you’ve got to understand the basics before moving on to more complex techniques. You’ll move forward to a more complex pattern next week. Before getting started with today’s lesson (the video on this page), be sure to download all of the LESSON MATERIALS HERE and sign up to receive all five free lessons.
