In this lead guitar lesson, now available on YouTube.com, Alejandra Mesliuk teaches how to play the solo from Don’t Speak by No Doubt. This solo is in the key of C minor and is composed of the techniques of slides, hammer-on’s, pull-off’s, and sweeps and is based in the natural minor scale and some arpeggios. This solo is very melodic and has a good blend of scale phrases and arpeggio sweeps that fit the context of the song well. Alejandra demonstrates the solo at tempo over a backing track and then slows it down and breaks it up into sections so you can catch all of the details and techniques of this solo. The arpeggio sweeps featured in this lead guitar lesson are very easy and great for the aspiring novice of this technique. Guitar TAB’s for this video lesson are available at GuitarControl.com.
