Need Help With Scales And Speed - Someone Please Help Me
Ok I have always wanted to learn lead but never have, I have always been the rhythm player. I tryed a couple times practicing basic scales but when ever I tryed to solo it always sounded like I was well playing a scale. I need some help on this part of my playing BIG TIME. And wondering if there is certain scales I should learn over others, and is there anywhere on the web to view scales etc etc.
My basic styles of playing has been, Dave Matthews yes I know but he is a extremly talented player listen to his solo stuff, his songs can hold up on there own with or without a band, and his unorthodox style of chords and rhythms is amazing. Mr Vai of course but I need to walk before I run, I can however play the rhythm parts. And Classical guitarists, not neo classical shredders but actual classical guitarists.
Styles im interested in learning, Mr Vai, Neo Classical Shredders, blues players ALA SRV and jazz greats like Grant Green and Wes Montgomery.
Wow now that I read this before posting it seems like im asking alot of y'all
but any point in the right direction would be greatly appreciated
