Do you know any easy guitar solos?
It’s one of the most asked questions I get from guitar players who are just starting out playing solo guitar. And I get that.
The most solos you hear in songs are not exactly beginner solos. They are often intermediate or advanced guitar solos.
For the beginner lead guitar player it almost feels like every solo is out of reach and that can be discouraging. How do other guitar players go about this?
Well almost every guitar player starts off with an easy guitar solo. Those who don’t are up for a major challenge and often left disappointed. You’ve got to work your way up one solo at a time.
My first solo was Wonderful tonight by Eric Clapton. Beautiful, short and fairly easy.
Once you practiced a couple of solos and you get the hang of the basic techniques like pull-offs, hammer-ons, slides and bend-ups it get’s easier and more fun. Then you also want to work on scales, dexterity and speed which you will achieve with regular practice and specific exercises.
But first thing first, let’s start off with choosing one easy guitar solo and have loads of fun with.
