Here´s another sample of my new lead guitar course
SUPERCHARGED SOLOING MADE SIMPLE!

Lead Guitar Lesson – SuperCharged Soloing Sample – Melodic Textures
Now in this course I’d like to devise soloing into two basic
categories, melody and what I call texture. If you’re playing
something slow, there’s a clear melody there. La-la-la. Now
technically everything is a melody because everything is notes.
But when you start playing a little bit faster and repeating
stuff you get into what I call texture.
So, for example, the simplest example is kind of like this.
I’m just kind of playing four notes there and repeating it.
So there’s no real melody in the traditional sense. So I like
to call it a melodic texture, but it also has a rhythmic element,
too. I’m hammering-on to the 7th fret and then pulling back off.
Then I’m hitting the 7th fret D string with my middle finger.
Really, my right hand is just picking one note down and then
one note down again. It’s a downstroke, hammer-on/pull-off,
I just want you to be aware of this concept of creating textures
and this is kind of like how we can supercharge our soloing,
is to combine melodies with cool textures.
