Watch the Shout It Out online guitar lesson by Neil Zaza from 50 Melodic Rock Licks You MUST Know

Who says melody has to be quiet and meek? Just because you are turning your amp up loud doesn’t mean that you have to sacrifice any of your melodic identity. Slow and pretty are one thing, but melody can exist on an amp turned up to 11. In this lick please notice that we are addressing some of the rhythm chords underneath. I am taking and working with shapes on the E major and A major chords, but giving each some breath and time by not rushing the melody. I’m giving it time to develop naturally.
