Moving on from the obscure subheading, I have many students who come to me wanting to solo. Watching other players play tremendously fast – like a polo rolling downhill (see, there WAS something to it) – students can feel discouraged when they cannot keep up that speed. I show them the fundamentals of soloing, which is playing in time, learning
a variety of techniques, and playing in a groove – all of which don’t necessarily mean fast playing.
You can play in many styles: jazz, folk, rock, blues, pop, funk, reggae, fingerstyle, and learn techniques and melodies from each. Being diverse in music is crucial if you want to be a good player, and this is what I teach to help people learn to solo like a polo. Above all, guitar lessons should be enjoyable, so you can have a good time learning to play.
