Today's lesson

At my guitar lesson tonight we did as much talking as anything. I have a lot of questions on improvising/soloing and don't know how to ask the right questions... being new to this stuff and all. Anyway, he was telling me about suspending and then resolving a phrase or lick. Like telling a story, there are parts that build the tension and parts that resolve it. I've never really thought about it like that, but it makes sense to me. I set out to watch some good players and see how they make lead guitar sound awesome. Probably not a new concept to all of you good players out there... but tonight's lesson and then watching this guy turned on a lightbulb in my head. I thought this dude did a fantastic job of it, so easy to see and hear:

Now the hard part... actually trying to apply the knowledge. I wish my instructor would use a cooler track like in the video, but he's using the progression to Clapton's "Wonderful Tonight" to try to teach me the concept. I think it's good for the lesson though, not too complex and easy to follow.

No real point to this post I guess... Just posting thoughts.
