Watch the Vocalizin' online guitar lesson by Neil Zaza from 50 Melodic Rock Licks You MUST Know

Focusing on making guitar melodies have a vocal-like delivery cannot be understated! There’s a reason that the lead singer is the focal point in the band. People relate to melody (and quite possibly his leopard skinned leather trousers, but that’s another topic altogether). But as guitarists, if we combine some of our techniques such as arpeggios with a line that is reminiscent of a vocal we really have the best of both worlds. We are going to be dealing with some great stretches in this riff so be ready to get those in tune and add liberal use of that magic technique called vibrato.
