No More Pointless Noodling!
'Developing Phrasing and Solos for Guitar' aims to give direction to all guitarists that feel they are stuck in a rut with their soloing. It is very common for guitarists to find themselves repeating licks and running out of ideas when taking a solo, this can lead to all solos sounding the same. This book provides many simple concepts that will easily fit into your own playing, enabling you to break these shackles and come up with more creative and interesting guitar solos.
With the book comes a 24 track CD that includes sample solos, backing tracks and demonstrations of all the examples and concepts covered. All examples are written in TAB, notation and easy to read chord diagrams.
