Metal Guitarist Announces Release Of Unique Guitar Soloing Resource

Tom Hess helps guitarists play emotional guitar solos with his new resource.
CHICAGO - Sept. 27, 2021 - PRLog -- Tom Hess, metal guitar player and owner of Tom Hess Music Corporation has made the official announcement of the release for a new online lead guitar resource created to show guitar players the best ways to communicate emotions in their guitar playing with only one note.

In the guitar playing community, it is very common for most players to struggle with the musical expression aspect of their playing. After teaching over 1,000 students throughout his career as a guitar teacher, Tom Hess has put all of his guitar knowledge into the creation of a new resource that is intended to give guitar players the ability to convey clear emotional ideas by using the notes of the guitar.

Hess says "The reality is that a lot of guitar players can play guitar very well in terms of technique. However, when the guitar player wants to use their guitar to express specific ideas or emotions in their playing…they have no idea what to do. In my experience as a guitar teacher, almost all guitarists attempt to imitate their favorite guitar players, but it doesn't work for them when they want to create their own guitar music."

In his resource, Hess cites "guitar phrasing" as a musical skill that is not properly developed by most guitar players, resulting in trouble with musical expression. "If you look at all of the greatest and most expressive guitar players, they all have various things in common. Contrary to popular belief, these things do not include the ability to play guitar fast, having a music degree, or practicing for an extreme amount of hours each day."

In addition to his thoughts on guitar phrasing, Hess discusses his ideas on using music theory for guitar: "Guitar players frequently misunderstand what music theory is, and then how to use it effectively in their music. As a result they have a hard time with musical expression. These guitarists think of music theory as a bunch of abstract note names, chord formulas, patterns and so on. Unfortunately, this is not what music theory is really about…and won't help anyone make music! If these guitarists want to improve their musical expression abilities, they need to understand how to link the notes of the guitar together with the feelings that arise in while playing them. In reality, that is all music theory is about."

Hess's online resource about emotional guitar solos is available on his website:
