How To Play A Guitar Solo Without EVEN THINKING About Scales! Band In A Box

The Best Guitar Solo Tutorial You NEVER SAW!

I used to think that playing a guitar solo was hard! For 40 years I thought that!!!

Now I know better. And I won’t try to explain it in some super-music theoretical way that you may never understand(if it didn’t bore you to death first)! Playing a guitar solo is easy only if you can find the desired notes without a lot of thought. This frees your mind to concentrate on the creativity that automatically happens when you experience the joy of playing! I have nothing against music theory, because without it I could not have come up with this guitar solo concept in the first place! I worked very hard at learning music theory for years, and one day God said “Good job son, now here’s a gift for you”! It was a gift to me, so now it is my turn to share it with you. Use the link below to have your musical life changed forever! Mine was! Gotta grab my Stratocaster! Thanks for checking out my blog!! Band In A Box backing tracks links are in the video!

Mr Eric Blackmon, Sir, I don’t know where you ‘ dropped in from ‘, but…., !!! NO, Let Me Re-Phrase that !!!!!, I don’t know Which ‘ Rock ‘ I’ve been Hiding under :- (  !  I just now, (Today for crying out loud), discovered you and your Great Channel!
You are truly an Awesome teacher my friend, and I am Honoured and Blessed to have found you. This is Definitely going to give New Meaning and Direction to my desire to continue playing and advancing.
For years I’ve felt like I’ve been stagnant with my playing,and it was like I was going  ‘nowhere fast.’  Your channel and it’s numerous well done tutorials will change that, of this I’m sure.
Thank you for your dedication and commitment to providing us with your knowledge and musical insight.

I can play! Now I can play !! Thanks!
ERIC;   I’ve BEEN PLAYING GUITAR FOR 30 YEARS,LISTENED TO all kinds Of lessons from SELF PROFFESSED “MASTER PLAYERS , 😛 ” , I happened on your Video and ,let Me Tell you,YOU ARE THE FIRST GUITAR INSTRUCTOR I WISH I’D HAD From The BEGINNING ! You Break Everything down So Simply,and TURN It INTO An almost “MAGICAL” Play Guitar Like a PRO Lesson THAT Is EASY to REMEMBER and Play, BUT SOUNDS SO GOOD! I always thought JAZZ was for the either REALLY GIFTED or HIGHLY MUSICALLY EDUCATED Musicians,…You Probably Are,BUT,YOU Make something that SOUNDS SO INTRICATE and DIFFICULT, Into Something So EASY,COOL and FUN to PLAY!!

I’ve been playing Blues,Rock most of my life,but ALWAYS Stayed away from jazz because It Seemed like it was WAY TOO FAR OVER MY HEAD,… You really TAUGHT an Old Dog NEW TRICKS TODAY!   I just Subscribed to Your Channel and can’t WAIT to see what other Stuff I’ve been MISSING OUT ON ALL THIS TIME because I thought since I Couldn’t Read Music,Didn’t know a Pentatonic Scale from a GIN and TONIC, Watching Your video was Pretty amazing and I’m GLAD I Found you !!        THANKS ERIC!!

Jude Bonham        Well Eric…..there it is. And it came from you, man! You may have just re-opened the door that i had closed years ago. Love hearing the blues, and always ways wanted to play it, but just gave up on it. First lesson I ever took, dude showed me two scales to memorize, and they were hard as hell for me to play and I gave up on it. But my interest has been renewed!! Thanks for this awesome video. Going to watch any others you may have and watch this one over and over. – Jude
