Watch the Rock Soloing Basics online guitar lesson by TrueFire from Play Rock Guitar 2: Rhythm & Lead Fundamentals

There is a lot more that goes into a solo than just playing up and down a scale! So learning various soloing techniques like bending, sliding, hammer ons and pull offs will help your scale start to sound more like a solo. Practicing the techniques by themselves will prepare you for when it is time to lay them down in a full solo.
