Guitar Solo: Gaining Musical Freedom Of Expression

As with many of the older players who never learned music theory, especially blues, gospel and many rockers, playing a guitar solo was totally finding the sweet spot, then expressing themselves in whatever way they were feeling. Some of the very best music we have today was created this way. Scales and theory gets you to the “correct” notes right away,  but no musical feeling or freedom or expression is provided. The good thing about the first method is that the ear training and freedom of expression are greatly developed. The problem with it is that once a person learns to play this way, they think that they don’t need to learn scales or theory. Players who initially learn music theory, tend to rely on it too much, and many times do not develop the ear and freedom of expression, which can be very frustrating, especially after studying and playing for years. Back in the day, because I knew nothing about theory or scales, I had to HEAR the music before I could play anything that worked with it. I could solo to most anything once I heard it, BUT I HAD TO HEAR IT FIRST!  One day, after years of playing this way, I decided to bite the bullet and sit down to learn music theory. SO GLAD THAT I DID!  Now that I have both the musical expression experience and the knowledge of music theory, I can “hear” the music in my head the moment I’m told what the key or scale is. I know what to do BEFORE I ever hear the music or start to play! So now I can instantly pre-plan my guitar solo! It’s the best of both worlds!

Here is my video on learning to solo without thinking about scales. This tutorial is designed to help you “let go” and to experiment with expressing  yourself and gaining musical freedom. I plan to soon produce a tutorial on how to use BOTH ear and theory concepts TOGETHER to produce amazing results! Thanks for checking out my blog!
