Aspiring guitarists often struggle to incorporate the unique style of guitar legends like Slash into their own playing.
They learn solos verbatim without understanding the reasoning behind each note and lick, leading to a limited ability to add their own flair.
This approach may work for playing covers or tribute bands, but it falls short when it comes to creating original music.
Simply repeating what someone else has played before will never make you stand out as a unique guitarist with your own sound.
Our course provides a comprehensive approach to learning Slash's guitar style that goes beyond memorizing his solos.
We teach our students to understand the reasoning behind each note, lick, and technique so that they can write solos that Slash himself would play if he were in their shoes.
With this knowledge, our students can infuse their own unique style and sound into their playing while still staying true to the essence of Slash's iconic guitar style.
- The “Snakepit Scale” that Slash uses to give his solos his unique style
- His “Slash Slur” technique that adds a frenetic edge and pumps up the energy
- How he adds layers of melody with “Hybrid Notes” through his solos
- How to work these into your own solos and improvisations
- 15 original licks across two solos that you can use in your own playing
