Watch the Howe 2: Solo 2 online guitar lesson by Trey Alexander from Quantum Rock

This solo is very influenced by Guthrie Govan. You notice that there is a lick that starts before the track. This is a pick up measure. Whether it is in the beginning of the song or in the middle of the song, this is a great spot to solo! You will also be learning some very cool alternate picking lines that incorporate some chicken picking. So you see, even over this very fusion rock style piece you can still use that country native “Chicken Picking”(hybrid picking) technique. You will also take that minor scale and play it in three positions. This is another case where it will come in handy to know all of your positions of the minor scale. We will also talk about those chord triads and how we can use these as nice arpeggios. I learned a lot of these from Yngwie Malmsteen and Jason Becker. You will surely find these very useful.
