How To Solo Over Chord Changes Part 1 Tim Pierce Papastache

How to Solo over Chord Changes Part 1

How to Solo over Chord Changes Part 1 is another video I did with Brett Papa. We are having more and more fun doing these videos such as this How to Solo over Chord Changes Part 1! I brought my Nash Strat, and we both plugged in at low-volume to Brett’s two Divided by 13 amps. The demonstration here on How to Solo over Chord Changes was how to play E major over Blues Rock changes going from E major to A major and then switch to The key of E minor, when the chords changed to C and D. I feel I lucked out with the tone of the Strat, it has sustain but it also reads as very clean. I suppose it’s also demonstration of how to play slowly and melodically. As I often do, I saved one fast riff for the very end. Hope you enjoyed this How to Solo over Chord Changes Part 1, there’s more on the way! I also have more lessons on my Lessons Playlist: You can find more videos as well on Brett’s YouTube channel at https://www.youtube.com/user/papastache102 Subscribe to Tim’s newsletter and get access to a private collection of videos and more.

Crossroads Cream Cover Free Online Guitar Lesson Tim Pierce

Crossroads Cream Guitar Lesson

Crossroads was recorded by Eric Clapton and Cream in 1968 when I was 10 years old. I started dreaming of the guitar around then, and I didn’t start playing till age 12. By the time I was 14 I was playing whatever version of crossroads I could muster. Once again I have to thank Steve Maase for being probably the greatest guitar teacher in the world. We were and still are lucky to have Steve in Albuquerque New Mexico. [column type=”one-half”]For this version of Crossroads I used a BAE DMP Mic Pre. You can see it in the background while I’m playing. The DMP is a simple, affordable Neve style mic pre. Honestly I think the BAE microphone preamps, sound just like the original vintage Neves, but with a little better top end and are a little more open sounding. I used a Gibson ES 335 that is not special in any way, it was produced in the 80s. It has stock pick ups and for this video I put 9’s on so I could stretch the strings easily. [/column] [column type=”one-half” last=”true”][adrotate banner=”21″][/column] As usual it’s the divided by 13 RSA 23 with a Bob Bradshaw Dunlop boost in front of it. The Dunlop boost is essentially an improved microamp. There is a Crossroads Extra Video available to anyone who signs up for the newsletter! Also, as a thank you to all the people that have become members of this site there is a Crossroads Outtakes Video and Jam Track Available! In the Crossroads Outtakes video, I show how I do create a written outline for the solo with a certain sections that stay the same and in other sections that are open for improvisation. The content will be available below when you are signed in. Thanks for all your…

Melodic Soloing Tips Free Online Guitar Lesson Tim Pierce

Melodic Soloing Tips Guitar Lesson

Melodic Soloing Tips is a free online guitar lesson where I talk about Melodic Solo approaches, different Guitar Techniques and Sounds. In this Melodic Soloing Tips video you can hear some of my main influences are coming out, particularly the Allman Brothers Fillmore East live double record. It was full of the kind of melodic soloing that has become a big part of my DNA. Then in later years Steely Dan and Larry Carlton also were very very important. I’m using my Mike Tuttle Stratocaster. He winds his own pick ups, and I’m using the neck pick up which gives you that Jimi Hendrix throaty rich deep sound. Please leave any comments you may have and I look forward to hearing from you.
