Watch the Solo online guitar lesson by Trey Alexander from Rock Guitar For Beginners

This next example is a very fun Pentatonic solo that uses breathing. Just like when we talk and we take breaths we want to learn how to do the same thing with our playing. Many great soloists are known more for how they would breathe and phrase than all of the crazy shred playing they did. Not to say by any means that shredding isn't awesome too. But remember, take you time and think about it like you are building a house or taking in a deep conversation. You want to make sure you build your solo with a sturdy foundation. And doing so takes hard work with a steady but ever expanding pace.
