Short and Sweet Solos Made Easy

Let's demystify the fretboard and learn how to play twangy, soulful and rockin' fills, and simple but tasty solos.

Learn tasty phrases that would fit right into an Alabama Shakes, Joni Mitchell, Jimi Hendrix or Tom Petty tune. Find your way around the fretboard with more confidence. Create powerful song arrangements with your knowledge of chord voicings. You'll also get tips on how to keep building on your skills.

This workshop is best suited for players who are comfortable with barre chords. Electric and acoustic guitarists are equally welcome — just be prepared to do some string bends.
