How To Harmonize A Guitar Solo

I bet you love the unmistakable sound of two distorted guitars playing a harmonized guitar solo. In this guitar harmony tutorial, you’ll find the advice you need to create your very own dual guitar harmony (in diatonic thirds).

I’ve broken this guitar tutorial down in 3 steps. I’ll use a harmonized solo in B minor that I wrote over a classic heavy metal backing track. On my YouTube channel, you can find the video (see below) that accompanies this lesson, as well as a performance of the harmonized solo AND the backing track (in a separate video).

I hope this free guitar harmony tutorial will help you a few steps forward on your guitar journey. May your guitar harmonies be inspiring & powerful!

Update (18/04). I’ve added the B minor scale that I used in the lesson as a seperate PDF that you can now download from my ‘diagrams’ page. Check out some of the guitar-related material (diagrams for guitar lessons and guitar tutorials) I’m developing over there

Dual Guitar Harmony

Here is a new Guitar Solo (with dual harmony) in B minor over a classic heavy metal guitar backing track called ‘Double Shot’.

The main idea was to play a twin harmony dual guitar lead in the style of The Scorpions, Thin Lizzy, Ratt, Iron Maiden and Boston (Tom Scholz!). Dual guitar solos are one of my all-time favorite guilty pleasures on guitar. This solo is harmonized in diatonic thirds. Most of the solo is played in the B minor scale (aeolian). The video shows you two views of both parts in a 4-way split-screen. After that, you can follow the tabs on the screen or you can click through to the backing track! All guitar parts (rhythm and guitar harmonies) recorded on my Suhr Modern Pro. Download the tabs below the video.
