In this lesson we go over a really cool little solo, courtesy of Noel Gallagher! This is a perfect solo to get beginners started with the idea of soloing. I love this solo because it’s simple, very melodic and extremely effective! If you are new to soloing then you will learn some very cool techniques like hammer-ons, pull-offs, bends and vibrato… and these are some pretty big techniques!


Well, to begin with I would highly recommend you know how to play your pentatonic shape 1! This whole solo used that particular shape in the key of A major/ F# minor, so if you don’t know it then this solo is going to be a lot harder to pick up. Of course, if you do know the shape then you will be able to take the solo and apply it to your own improvising in other keys. This is probably the most important thing you need to do when learning a solo, be sure to understand how it fits into any particular shapes so that you can take the ideas and use them as your own!
