I couldn’t play lead guitar even after I learned all the guitar scales, modes and theory.
I found it so hard to make any connection between all the theory and scales I was learning and actually playing lead guitar.
I searched everywhere but nobody could tell me what I needed to know:
- How do lead guitarists figure out where a solo is going and what note to play next?
- Is there any method at all to learning lead guitar or do great guitarists just play “what sounds good”?
- Does one note just randomly follow another when you learn lead guitar or is there a method to the madness?
