For many musicians, soloing is the most enjoyable part of playing music. There’s no other feeling quite like spontaneously improvising music that is all your own. But for many people, soloing can be intimidating. Which notes do I play? How do I come up with new ideas? What if I make a mistake? Easy Soloing for Acoustic Guitar will help you overcome these doubts. You’ll learn easy methods to approach soloing with confidence, which can be applied to thousands of songs in many different styles of music. Instead of learning a lot of technical music theory, you’ll learn practical guidelines you can use in real life. This book is designed for beginners who are already comfortable with the basics, such as tuning the guitar, strumming chords, and picking single notes. The book features standard music notation and TAB, and a CD demonstrating all the examples in the book is included.
