Watch the 50 Melodic Rock Licks online guitar lesson by Neil Zaza from 50 Melodic Rock Licks You MUST Know
Whew! We did it! 50 Melodic Licks - Congratulations!
I’m so glad that you took the opportunity to study with me in this course. Playing melodically is a subject that is near and dear to my heart and permeates all the music I write and record everyday.
Playing with melody, as strange as it sounds, is sort of a way of life musically. It can be incorporated into any style of music and will always give you amazing results. You’ll find that with the more melody you use, the more your listeners will be drawn into your music. Not every tune will call for a raging melodic and dramatic solo, but I can assure you that finding a small section for melody in every solo will yield you musical results.
Don’t rush in studying these licks. I think the best way to digest concepts like this is to let it settle over time. Attempt a few this week and live with them for a bit. Try to incorporate the lick or at least some of its concept into what you are doing right now. Find a place for it in that solo section this weekend with your band. In the studio recording? Take a second to approach what you are doing with a vocal-like awareness. Just a little goes a long way. As I have found out, it’s a lifelong journey and one that I don’t think I’ll ever end because there are so many melodic things to learn and play! I hope you’ll join me in this journey.
I’d love to hear from you, get your feedback, see what you loved (or didn’t) about this course, your thoughts on playing melodically and all else related to our favorite subject: Guitar!
