Starlin Guitar Method Soloing Quick Start Guide

Soloing (also called improvising or lead guitar) can seem like a mystery when you see someone’s fingers flying around the fretboard of the guitar. But it can be learned. In fact, it is no more difficult to learn than any other aspect of guitar playing. However, like any musical ability, it takes time and practice to become skilled at it. This book will give you the tools you need to begin improvising on guitar. Your goal is to take these tools and begin to develop your own lead guitar “voice.”  

This free Quick Start guide is all you need to get started soloing on guitar. It features a key-based visual approach to soloing. You can use it to learn how to jam along with the Jam Tracks in the Media section of my website. Improvising on guitar is fun. Give it a try.
