Watch the AB/CD online guitar lesson by Jeff McErlain from Beginner Blues-Rock Soloing
There's a lot of stuff going on in this solo, and I know this course is designed to be beginner level so some of you may say, "this is hard!" And you'd be absolutely right! I didn't want to make these solo performances too simple, as I felt like the player may not be interested in learning them if it wasn't something he wanted to know how to play. That's an important element in inspiration; to try to learn something that inspires you. Obviously, you do have to be realistic for your skill level. It'll be very disappointing to try to play a Van Halen solo if you've only been playing for three months.
