Jamming with other players is one of the most fun, creative and satisfying parts of playing guitar. But after you've memorized all your favorite rock, blues, jazz and country licks and solos to play, how do you start making up your own? This book teaches you how to: build solos with scales, ad lib chord-based solos, embellish melodies, play harmonized melody lines, leave the melody behind and improvise freely, start developing your own style, and more! All the tunes, licks and exercises are included on the accompanying CD, along with eight practice tracks to help you apply the soloing ideas.
