Who it Solofire for?
Let’s start with who it’s not for. It’s definitely not for absolute beginners. So, if you just got your guitar, then this is not for you. It’s also probably not for "beginners” either. Meaning, if you’ve never played a guitar solo and you don’t know any scales or lead-licks, this is probably isn’t for you either. It’s also not for acoustic-only players because the majority of the training is for electric guitar.
Here’s who it is for: the intermediate player who’s already got some chops. Someone who can already play say, the pentatonic scale in first position, or a few licks. The solid rhythm player, who wants to learn lead, from the ground up. For the person who knows there’s a lot more to guitar soloing than just learning some licks. And guitarists who can already solo a little but who get stuck easily, run out of ideas, and don’t really understand how to improvise a great solo from scratch.
Guitar styles taught
The training focuses on lead guitar in blues and rock style. Most of the techniques are for electric guitar. And many concepts could be adapted to acoustic as well. All the training is based on A minor pentatonic. Which makes everything super easy to follow. But, of course, you’ll learn all about transposition and how to play in any key, over any song as well.
