This product picks up where we left off in Blues Soloing Secrets Major Pentatonic Level 1. Now that you have a solid foundation on how to play the Major pentatonic scale correctly and have learned the scale shapes, it’s time to unleash the beast! This Blues Soloing Secrets Major Pentatonic level 2 course puts a heavy emphasis on melodic soloing ideas and techniques. I’ll show you how to bend, twist, and break all the rules of playing strict major pentatonic licks. This will open the door to understanding how the greats of guitar were able to craft such amazing melodic solos. You’ll learn the how-to’s of playing both inside and outside the box, taking your playing to a whole new level.
This course starts off like level 1 by going over lick ideas in each position. But now that your finger strength and dexterity has improved, its time to up your game. I help you do this by adding techniques like bending and vibrato, quicker runs, string skipping, more position shifts, chromatic licks, hybrid picking, and using more chord tones outside of the major pentatonic box. The creative potential these techniques unlock is endless and will take your playing to the place of your dreams.
In the second section, you’ll learn to apply these techniques practically. The professionally produced jam tracks are the same as in level one, so if you’re working through both courses you’re already familiar with where the target notes are. However, that is where the similarities stop. This course will challenge you with longer, faster, and more complex riffs while retaining the heavy emphasis on melody. I’ll also show you more examples over the verses and choruses, hitting those sections from every angle.
When you’re done with this course you’ll be ready to play out in bands and create your own memorable solos. If you’re into playing cover tunes, these ideas will translate well and give you an understanding of what’s happening in those awesome solos you’re playing. And, just in case you forget where you’re at in that amazing classic rock solo while playing in front of a packed house (I swear, that’s never happened to me); you’ll have the tools to land safe and sound without missing a beat.
As an added bonus, I’ll talk about all the gear used in making this video series and give you a quick guide on how to get awesome tones!
At over 9 hours and 51 minutes, I left no stone unturned in giving you the keys to the major pentatonic kingdom!
Tabs and jam tracks included.
