Slowing down songs is another great way to learn from records and your song collection. I use Song Surgeon, which works really well for this. Check it out.

Guitar Lesson Overview

Here is a 4 bar long rock guitar solo lesson. This lesson is short, and I didn't include any verbal instruction on this one (I was in a hurry), but the solo is repeated at a slower tempo, in two different angles.

This rock guitar solo is inspired by players such as Angus Young and Gary Moore.The last 7 notes in this lick is a line I have heard Angus Young do often, so it kind of stuck to me!

Download Guitar Pro

I highly recommend you buy Guitar Pro - it's the best software I have found for learning guitar. Many of my lessons come with Guitar Pro files. You can download a trial version on the Guitar Pro website to see if you like it (I think you will).

Almost forgot.I play a 55 LP special through a supro thunderbolt and with just a touch of delay and fully cranked it nails that tone almost perfectly. For those of you who have often wondered what a thunderbolt sounds like... Roberts got it down.

I used the Line 6 POD Farm for this, but you don't have to use that kind of gear if you have a good amp. First of all, use a humbucker guitar. Then use a high gain amp, or a pedal that can give you that tone. The "Metal" pedals by Boss or Danelectro, for example, would get you a similar tone. I also use a bit of delay on solos like these, to make the tone sound "larger". Set the delay to 400 milliseconds or so, and adjust the delay volume level to taste.

Hi Robert
Please advise on what gears and pickups on so on ... you've used to create this rock solo sound in the video "Rock Guitar Solo Lesson". Should I jump from analogic to logical sound effects like line 6 etc ... please advise ... Thank You very much ... Regards ... Pierrick from Bordeaux (wine :-), France
