“Today I want to do a lesson on guitar soloing skills”, says Johnson, “when it comes to soloing one of the most important things is to be able to play melodies because that is what lead guitar is playing melodies that can accompany the song”. Claude says that the easiest way to do this is to start with the pentatonic scale and teaches the demonstration licks in the key of A. Johnson performs easy examples in A minor pentatonic and incorporates techniques such as vibrato, hammer-on’s, pull-off’s, slides and bending. “Simply melodies start and end with the root note”, says Johnson, “you should always try to make it melodic and always end a phrase with vibrato”. Claude continues this easy beginner lead guitar lesson by demonstrating multiple examples and ideas to help you get your creative juices flowing to become a better lead guitarist.
