Trick To Creating Melodic Solos - Guitar Lesson - Blues Rock Soloing - Pentatonic Scale

In today’s lesson we go over a very simple way to instantly become more melodic in your soloing. We will take a G chord and learn how to see it in three different spots on the neck so no matter where we are at on the neck you can target those chord tones. When you can see the chord shapes inside your scales magic happens! Once you expand upon this idea and use it for all the chords in your progression melodic solos will be flying out of your fingers!
