Watch the 12 AM: Lead 2 online guitar lesson by TrueFire from Play Rock Guitar 6: Soloing Principles

12 AM: Lead 2 - Performance is a video guitar lesson presented by Andy Aledort and is sourced from Jam Night Vol. 2.


The impetus for demonstrating pairs of approaches for both rhythm guitar and soloing on each of these tracks is to not only offer a variety of choices of ways to play over the tune, but also to demonstrate the development of an idea; each subsequent rhythm part or solo idea is intended to build on the previous example. This second solo is a good example of this very technique, as the opening sliding sixths have been moved higher on the fretboard, and the solo lines feature a stronger blues-type feel.
