Truefire Lindsay Ell's The How to Solo Handbook

Hands-On, Fast-Track Soloing Method
Lindsay Ell's rare combination of skills as a master guitarist, profound singer-songwriter, dynamic performer, and passionate educator power this fast-track, hands-on How to Solo Handbook. Leveraging years of experience and a deep passion for music education, Lindsay distills her unique teaching methods and TrueFire's learning technologies to provide guitar students with an accelerated, immersive learning experience.

“Okay, so you play guitar already and are now anxious to learn how to solo - awesome! I love soloing so much that it's something I work on every day of my life. I'm excited to share with you the magical building blocks I use in my solos. The great news is that it's so easy to get started.

I've organized this handbook into three sections. We'll start by understanding chord progression structures using “chord boxes” to lay out a road map of notes on the neck in any key.

Then, we'll practice the five pentatonic scale patterns and look at how they fit together over the chord boxes – giving us notes that are easy to find and sound great anywhere you play them in a progression.

And as the cherry on top, we'll introduce major scale notes to add color to your solos. I'll reveal my hacks for identifying the key of any song, and we'll explore ways to infuse your soloing with that soulful, expressive touch.

The best part? You and I are in this together. We'll jam through it all, practicing what we learn over song progressions I've crafted for this course, spanning various styles and keys. I've also included a practice journal with diagrams and tools to help guide your soloing learning journey.”

The How to Solo Handbook will accelerate your journey in guitar soloing, using techniques developed by Lindsay herself. Here, every lesson embodies her commitment to nurturing and expanding your musical abilities. Join Lindsay Ell and tap into a wealth of knowledge, skill, and passion as you embark on a transformative guitar-playing adventure.

You'll have TrueFire's interactive learning tools at your fingertips to customize your workspace and learn at your own pace.

The demonstrations and performances are tabbed, notated, and synced to the video lessons with controls for looping, slow motion, fretboard animation, and other tools designed to accelerate your progress.

You'll also get the tab and standard notation files to print out, downloadable Guitar Pro files, and backing tracks to practice and record with.
