I can't stress enough how important this is for lead guitar and it will change the way you approach improv and songwriting forever.

Now that you are skilled at targeting chord tones, the next step is to learn devices that add interest to your solos and licks.

A message from Lee Anderson:

Owner and instructor of Play Guitar Academy 

 

Hey there Player!

If you are ready, today can be the very last day of your guitar frustration!

Since you are reading this, I'm sure you know what a struggle learning the guitar has become.

With the 24/7 information firehose and the self-guided à la carte method of picking disjointed videos to learn from, it's harder than ever to get good at guitar.

Since the YouTube guitar explosion, I've been helping frustrated players make sense of the chaos and I've shown them the path to real, steady, and predictable results.

You see, the guitar isn't difficult it's just not obvious. It's not the user-friendly experience that we have all become used to.

The skills you learn... MUST be learned in order. They build upon each other. When you do that, things speed up VERY QUICKLY!
