Watch the SECTION 3: Solo Studies online guitar lesson by Jason Loughlin from Blues Connections: Minor

Section 3 will put everything we've learned thus far into practice. We'll be using our modes, voice leading, and improvisation concepts in these five solo studies. Each solo will start with a new mode scale in A and have us soloing in position using all of our new techniques. You'll have one solo for each position of the A minor pentatonic scale. Try putting these in all 12 keys.

Next steps would be to improvise using the games we talked about in targeting chord tones and writing your own solos. It doesn't have to be handwritten out, just compose something for each position. The better you get at composing well-shaped solos, the better you'll improvise with them.
