Phrase Construction II
from Expanding Technical Skills V
by J Gregoire
Hi, and welcome to Phrase Construction. This is an essential part of soloing, for this is the topic you should think of the most when you are trying to create a memorable solo. Let's take a trip back in time and think of some of the greatest phrases on the guitar ever: Eric Clapton in his intro phrase on "Layla," Jimmy Page and his solo work on "Stairway to Heaven," Brian May of Queen when he did "Bohemian Rhapsody," and Tom Schultz of Boston and his solo work on "More Than A Feeling." These were all memorable solos that we can whistle as we walk down the street. It just takes a little more time and patience to do this. And with these exercises in this lesson, maybe it will help you in carving that unforgettable melody phrase. Launch the lesson.
