Watch the Track 2: Songwriter online guitar lesson by Jason Loughlin from Trading Solos: Americana

The first solo concept is targeting a single chord tone. Seems simple but it's a very effective way to make a solo sound organic and connected. Try being consistent about what you target. In this example I'm only targeting the roots. The next concept is to play double stops within the pentatonic scale. Nothing too complicated here. Pick two notes on strings next to each other and embellish with a pentatonic note above on either string. You can hammer on, pick or bend to it. Try as many variations as you can think of. The last soloing idea is great for tighen up your phrasing. We are gonna to be using call and response phrasing with octaves. We do this by playing a short phrase and then repeating it an octave above or below with little variation. This can help give this illusion of two voices or instuments playing off of each other.
