Lighthearted Country Solo & Instrumental in A major. A bit of Rockabilly twang and Country Western Swing influence too! The guitar is my lake placid Fender Vintera Telecaster. Enjoy!

Featured Lick
Country Turnaround Lick

At the end of the B-section, I play this ‘bouncy’, country guitar lick on the turnaround (from the E chord back to the A). In pink, you can see how the melody of this country solo moves from the E  (12th fret on the e-string) to the A (5th fret on the e-string). Listen to the example below:

80s Game Rock Guitar Solo (+TAB)

Original, heavy metal / hard rock guitar solo (155 BPM) in D minor, inspired partly by 80s Rock (Iron Maiden, Stratovarius and others), but mostly by Arcade game – boss fight – music!  Are you up for a challenge?

About this solo

This melodic rock solo in the key of D minor took a while to put together! In other words, I had to level up, both in playing and in editing skills to make everything work. e.g. playing the sweep-picking part ‘cleanly’ took more practice than anticipated. In fact, I re-recorded the entire video because I wasn’t happy with my first performance. Although – obviously – a lot can be corrected in the ‘editing’-phase, I like to keep these edits to a minimum, to keep things ‘real’ for you guys! Hopefully, this 80s game solo, called ‘Arcade’ is as fun and inspiring for you as it was for me. 

The 8-bit version of the solo (video-outro)

I know this is a bit of a gimmick, but I wanted to see If my guitar solo would work as an 8-bit game melody. Here is the 8-bit version I composed with the Magical 8-bit plugin. This was too much fun 🙂
