The Creative Guitarist Course Introduction and Overview

Hello, friends. I'd like to welcome you to my brand new course, The Creative Guitarist: "How to Write More Expressive, Emotional, and Melodic Lead Guitar Solos."

If you're one of those people that struggles with how to write your own solos, how to craft them from memory, and you want to be like some of your favorite guitarists, then this is the course for you. I've created this brand‑new course especially with you in mind.


The Creative Guitarist, Module 1

In Module 1, we'll be covering the "Incubate" phase. That's all about taking your ideas and processing them before you even touch the guitar so that you'll be ready when it's time to pick up the instrument.

We'll be talking about how to use backing tracks, understanding how to process them mentally and memorize those. I'll be showing you how to incubate them so that you will be ready and prepared to write your own creative guitar solos.

We'll talk about the importance of taking breaks and not getting stressed out when you feel like you're stuck in a creative rut.

I'll also take you behind-the-scenes and show you my very own process of how I incubate my own solos.

For your convenience, a sample of each Module in The Creative Guitarist Masterclass will be placed below each section of this blog post. The first several lessons of Module 1 are free to preview.

The Creative Guitarist, Module 2

Then, in Module 2, we'll cover "Solo Studies." This is where the meat of the course takes place. Learn how to study all your favorite guitar heroes' solos and understand the process of how they think creatively.

I'll be offering several of my own solos for you to study, as well as show you how I break them down so that you can better understand the process of how to write your own creative and expressive solos. 

We'll also be covering the subject of Phrasing, a very popular topic among guitarists—and one very few know how to execute properly. I'll show you the inside scoop on how to phrase on your instrument and how to think like your own Guitar Heroes.

Then we'll dive deep into how to learn solos and how to process and break them down so that you can get some great ideas for your very own creative solos. You'll then learn how to use those ideas in your own work.

The Creative Guitarist, Module 3

In Module 3, we'll talk about "Skill Level Assessment" and how you can take your skills to the next level. I'll be showing you various practice tools—including a very simple Practice Template to help you analyze your practice sessions and assess your current skill level as well as develop new skills that you need to take them to the next level.

Most people get this part of the process wrong. I'll show you how to practice the right way.

We'll also cover the difference between Improvisation and Composition, and why improvisation alone is not sufficient in your quest to create melodic, expressive, and emotional solos. You'll learn how you can harness the power of improvisation and use it in your own solos.

Then, I'll show you The Ultimate Deadline Tool, something I've used several times to help me create some of the most melodic, expressive, and emotional solos I've ever written.

The Creative Guitarist, Module 4

Finally, in Module 4, we'll be talking about troubleshooting your solos and about different creative ruts and creative blocks you might encounter—that many, many people encounter—when trying to write your own solos.

I'll be addressing various FAQs many people have and are frustrated with when writing solos.
