Learn lead guitar scales in my free new 7 video series Learn to Play Lead Guitar. Here is an easy to learn method of videos which will teach you how to play lead guitar or improve your lead guitar skills. I put this series together because there was so much conflicting and confusing information on the Internet about how to play lead guitar.
You will learn the 5 positions of the minor pentatonic and minor scales and learn hoe to play them in any key. This will allow you to play leads on the entire fretboard. I also throw in some cool riffs which you can use for your solos!
When you want to take lessons to learn how to play guitar or to improve your guitar playing skill level you have three choices which can help provide you with the needed instructional information.
Online guitar lessons are an excellent way of learning how to play the guitar or improve your skills. There are many different types of online guitar lessons to choose from. Of course You Tube is filled with free online guitar videos which can help you become a better guitar player. The quality of videos and instructors will vary greatly and it is a bit of a hit and miss type of approach. In my opinion the best site to take online guitar lessons from is guitartricks.com. They actually offer 24 free lessons which can try and see if you like their approach to teaching guitar. One big advantage to using online guitar lessons is that you can learn at your own speed. You can rewind, pause and play a video as many times as you would like until you understand fully what the instructor is teaching you. Other advantages include having the ability to view lessons whenever you have time and not having to travel anywhere to take a good guitar lesson.
The second lesson type is a private lesson. This is where you find a local guitar teacher and have weekly sessions. This is a good way to learn how to play guitar from a professional teacher. You will get personal instruction and have the ability to ask questions and show the teacher on the issues you are having trying to learn the guitar or increase your skill level. This is an excellent option but it probably will be the most costly of the three. You want to talk to any teachers that you would like to take lessons from to understand what they will be teaching you and how. If you want to learn how to play rock guitar and the instructor teaches jazz type of guitar styles then you should look for another teacher.
The third option is learning from a DVD. This is another good option if you want to learn on your own time and have the ability to go over lessons until you get them down. Often times these types of lessons will come with printed material of PDF’s which you can print off and have in front of you when you are practicing. I have found having a hard copy of the lesson you are learning to be much better that looking at a computer screen of information.
The choice is up to you when you are choosing which types of lessons are right for you. If you are disciplined and are motivated to learn how to play guitar or improve your ability then I would encourage you to try online lessons or DVD’s. If you need some personal guidance and do not do well learning on your own then I would try private lessons. You can try each of these for a limited time (free online lessons from GuitarTricks.com, single low cost DVD, or take a few private lessons) and see what works well for you. You can then expand from there and take additional lessons on the technique that fits you best.
They can take some time to learn, but once you master them to the fullest extent – there will be no reason why you can not take over a song with an incredible solo by using Blues guitar scales!
This may surprise you, but they are commonly used in many songs including Aerosmith, John Mayer, Coldplay, Nirvana, and many other popular bands. If you name the band – they probably use it; especially if they are a popular.
They are popular simply because they are easy to access, they are easy to use and implement in a song, and they have a widescale appeal – people think you are an absolutely genious when you use this type of scale to play your songs!
So What is it Exactly?
Blue scales depends the use of a musical scale that has six notes/pitches per octave. It’s a pretty active playing style but nothing you can’t get used to!
It is also based on each key or string, It is not based on the chord – this simply would not be blue scale guitar playing. It has been used by musicians for decades so that they can improvise. When you see those awesome improvisations – they’re really just using blues scale.
Also, you have to be sure to memorize your finger pattern so that you will be able to do your hot solos or “improvisations”.
You want to make sure that you learn your individual strings and fretboard so that you will ultimately learn how to play Blue scales on your guitar and become a great lead guitarist!
