Melodic Guitar Solo (Pop Rock) in D
I’ve been playing a lot on the Suhr guitar lately! Over the last weeks, I wrote a new, uplifting, melodic guitar solo in D. Enjoy! Update 26-11: I made a few (minor) additions to the tab!
About Melodic Guitar Solo
I love playing solo’s in major keys, although it can be a bit of a challenge to keep things interesting. In my experience, it helps to play around with the major third and to search for chord suspensions (sus2 and sus4). I can’t pinpoint a clear artist influence for this melodic guitar solo, although some ‘Joe Satriani’ is going on (e.g., the legato flurries in bars 16 and 17). I aimed for a modern, spacious guitar sound, leaving room for your timed delays to ring through 😉
