Enjoy this 80s-TV-Themed Guitar Solo, featuring synths, palm trees, all the wrong colors and some fun guitar licks! Solo played on my Suhr Modern Pro HH.
About This Solo
I was born in the 80s, so that might explain my fascination for 80s music (that and playing too much GTA Vice City back in the day). This 80s guitar solo is played over a retro-themed rock backing track in the key of A minor. The track opens with a classic Moog-synth pattern (Arturia Mini V), that inspired me to play long notes, and gradually build up a more melodic solo with some classic 80s guitar spice. The solo is mostly A minor & A minor pentatonic
Epic 80s backing track here or you can purchase the track (high quality wav-version) here:
To paraphrase Bob Ross, this guitar lick was a ‘happy accident’ during improv. This legato lick has 2 septuplets patterns (beats 1 & 2), before sinking into the groove of the song again.
