Improvising on Guitar Lesson Description:

Okay, I'm not a fan of "hacks" when it comes to guitar soloing. 

But I do want to show you a little perspective trick for how to connect scales when improvising on guitar. 

I recently created several lessons on how to map out and practice various types of scales.

But once we learn our scale positions we often find ourselves "stuck" in those shapes when improvising on guitar. 

There's a way to get past that, seamlessly connecting scales, when working on guitar soloing.

Which is exactly what I teach and demonstrate in this week's lesson video.
