Rock Guitarist Unveils Virtuoso Soloing Methods

Tom Hess reveals virtuoso guitar soloing methods, discussing them in online resource.

June 24, 2014 - PRLog -- International guitar expert Tom Hess, has unveiled his methods for playing emotional guitar solos in an online guitar soloing resource (http://tomhess.net/PitchAxisTheory.aspx).

In his resource, Hess talks about why so many guitarists are unable to play emotional guitar solos.

Hess says, “Most guitar players believe that playing great guitar solos is all about mastering technique or playing fast. These things can only get you so far. Fact is, all the best guitar solos you’ve ever heard may have contained these elements, but for sure were played in a way that felt highly emotional. THIS is the key to playing killer solos. Fortunately, playing emotional guitar solos is not as difficult as it might seem. You really only need to play one note (at first).”

He continues:

“The secret to playing emotional guitar solos is understanding how a particular note ‘functions’ over a particular chord. For example, an E note ‘functions’ (and feels) totally different when played over a C# minor chord versus an A minor chord. When the E note is played above the A minor chord, it acts as the fifth of that chord. However, over the C# minor chord, it functions as the third of that chord. Thirds and fifths sound completely different. Even though the same note is played over both chords, the way the note ‘feels’ emotionally is massively different when its function is changed. By using this outlook in your guitar soloing approach, you will massively improve your skills for self-expression in your lead guitar playing. Of course, this is just ONE way to play great solos. To master guitar soloing, you have to make your audience feel the emotions you want them to whenever you play guitar.”
