In this series Kenny discusses motific playing. Motific playing is starting with a simple idea and developing it throughout your solo. He'll dicuss concepts like motives, motives in cycles, allision, and how to apply these in your playing. Kenny also demonstrates some of these ideas over both a chord vamp and a standard idea in order to show you just how these ideas can really lead to more developed lead guitar playing.
