ABOUT this guitar solo:
-------------------------------------
This melodic, emotional guitar solo is called 'Lost In Thought, ' as it is inspired by how the mind races, brings ideas, and makes us ponder possibilities. The track is primarily a 3-chord groove (Am7, Em7, Fmaj7) that builds in intensity and groove during the track. Although it's a slow track, it's definitely not a ballad! 

I play the intro with my Gibson ES-335 (with effects from the eventide H9 and the XLN Retro Color), the solo with my Suhr guitar.

While the atmospheric groove builds, the emotional solo starts with long notes that follow the chords. Part B is a short break, where I switch to the bridge pickup and add a fuzz (Fractal Audio Systems AX-8). This was also the only good place to reverse the tremolo bar on my guitar for an effect that would follow later. Part C is the climax of the track and builds further on the intro and part A chords. After a fancy tapping lick ;-), Part D serves as a post-chorus where the strings bring the track home. Part E is a short outro with piano and erhu, a beautiful sound.

This is a dreamy melodic guitar solo titled ‘Lost In Thought‘, inspired by the mind’s racing and pondering about possibilities. The track consists of a 3-chord groove (Am7, Em7, Fmaj7) that intensifies as it progresses. My Gibson ES-335 is played in the intro, with effects from the Eventide H9 and the XLN Retro Color are added. Next is the real solo, beginning with long notes that follow the chords, and Part B is a short break. During this section, the bridge pickup is used, and a fuzz (Fractal Audio Systems AX-8) is added. Moreover, this was also the only good place to reverse the tremolo bar on the guitar for an effect that would follow later. Next is Part C, the climax of this dreamy melodic guitar solo and this section builds further on the intro and part A chords. After a fancy tapping lick, Part D serves as a post-chorus where the strings bring the track home. Lastly, part E is a short outro with piano and erhu, an uncommon but beautiful sound.

Featured Lick

When it comes to the art of finger tapping, I consider myself a beginner, but I’m always up for a challenge! This melodic tapping lick, which is a lick in A minor, is played over a G-chord (bar 56) to Am (bar 57). The lick utilizes the open G-string and a rhythm that speeds up throughout bar 56. Starting with sixteenth notes on beats 1, it transitions into sixteenth note sextuplets on beats 2 and 3, and ultimately culminates with 32nd notes on beat 4.

About the TABS
While the original tabs on my website are free, purchasing this package comes with an extra perk: you’ll also get a Guitar Pro file that allows you to play along with the solo, slow down difficult sections, loop parts of the solo, and much more … To use this file, please ensure that you have at least Guitar Pro 7 or a newer version installed on your device. If you want to practice and master this solo, the Guitar Pro format is a big help!
