  • About the Course

    This course is a reiteration of the course title, ‘ Play Like a Pro - Nail That Guitar Solo’. It tries to train students at the intermediate level, tricks and techniques that can enable them to play solo cover versions of popular rock anthems, selected by the teacher. This course is a perfect fit for guitar players wishing to focus on solo and rock anthem guitar solos from the classic solo genre. The course is segmented into three levels that dwell into the scales and modes incorporated, playing expressions used as well as the sound and tonality of the guitar. The course covers the three levels by teaching students about expressions of electric guitar playing, comprising note-slides, string bends, hammer-ons, pull-off, finger-tapping, legato, whammy bar scoops, harmonics etc. This course also sheds light on the study and application of scales and modes, guitar tone and effects in relation to playing the guitar solo.

    The earlier guitar was constructed from wood with its strings made of catgut. Catgut is a type of cord which is prepared from the natural fibre found in the walls of animal intestines. Sheep, goats, cattle, hogs, horses, mules, or donkeys were the animals used for this.
