Watch the Soloing the Changes online guitar lesson by Jeff McErlain from Soloing the Changes
Hi, I'm Jeff McErlain and welcome to Soloing the Changes. I'm very excited to bring this course to you! This is exactly how I think about soloing all over any chord progression. I've chosen a number of popular songs and chord progressions from the blues and rock world. I'll take you through soloing over the chord changes and finding the special and unique notes for each tune. These are progressions that I find people often miss what I see as great opportunists to dig into the song. As you'll see, I'll use the pentatonic scale as a starting point, something we are all familiar with, then see how we can expand upon that. I'm not thinking scales here, I'm thinking chord tones and making the changes.
I'll perform every solo and then I'll break it down for you note for note highlighting the essential chord tones as we go. Everything is tabbed and notated and you’ll have the backing tracks to work with on your own. You can also loop and slow down any of the tabbed performances so that you can work with the materials at your own pace. So, let's dig in!
