Tim Pierce - Blues Soloing Over Chord Changes - Guitar Lesson

Who's Tim Pierce?
Bruce Springsteen, Bon Jovi, Patty Smith, Joe Cocker, Michael Jackson, Madonna, Tina Turner, Rod Stewart, Roger Waters, Celine Dion, Eric Clapton, Elton John, Alice Cooper, Shakira, Ozzy Osbourne, Vasco Rossi, Jovanotti, Christina Aguilera, Tracy Chapman and many many more ask him to play the guitar on their albums.
Nuff said.

I started using this "chords tricks" to play a solo over complex chords progression some years ago, since I'm not a "scale guy".
I'm happy with the kind of melody I can achieve this way, and it's easier for me to quickly visualize the shape of the chord and using it as starting point to play over an odd progression.

...but WOW, this video is a real Masterclass.
Tim's explanation is simply perfect.
He explains exactly which position he's using and why, and he plays step by step all the different parts of his solo, over over again.
The goal is not to play this solo, but understand how it works and being able to apply this technique to every progression you want.

It takes 20 minutes, but you won't be disappointed.
Level: mid / advanced
