Chris Liepe introduces the lesson series. In this series you will learn an amazing melodic rock guitar solo one lick at a time.
Chris teaches the first lick of his instrumental melodic rock guitar solo. This verse hook grounds the listener with repetition. The subdued nature of the line leaves plenty of lift for the coming transition to the chorus.
Inch your volume knob up just a tad, but let the clean tone of the guitar shine through on these Satriani-inspired bursts of speed. Inserting runs like these into calmer sections of a passage help prepare the listener for energy that presents itself later in the song.
This is the second and primary hook of the song. It is joined with a repetitive call and answer lick.
This lick is the first of two speedy and articulate descending lines.
Inspired by the simplicity found in the playing of classic artists like Chuck Berry, this bendy line illustrates the power of intentionally pulling back within the beat to make the notes stand for more than they are worth.
Chris teaches a lick that temporarily modulations into Dorian. The lick is descending and is played with alternate picking.
In this section the lick returns to Mixolydian with a slow staccato passage that ends up as fast legato.
Chris Liepe teaches a lick that uses 6th intervals. In addition to learning the exact solo lick, you’ll learn a few cool ways to navigate the neck with 6ths.
Just like with the first verse, sudden bursts of Lydian speed help move us down the road. The power of this passage is in the pauses and the way certain notes are emphasized.
Chris Liepe teaches a lick that features triplets, alternate picking, palm muting, and rhythmic repetition.
Chris teaches a blistering, descending legato lick inspired by Steve Vai.
This lick features some tapping with the blunt edge of the pick.
Chris teaches a lick that utilizes pedal tones.
This lick combines good legato speed with accented, alternate picking. It is a perfect example of how rhythm, speed, and register work to build energy.

A well put together solo, not easy, in fact I'd say almost impossible and if I hadn't seen and heard Chris play the whole thing, well he's good. In difficulty rating, I 'd say 10/10 but it gives us something to aim at Fun but bloody painful,ou
I forever wanted to learn Joe S. style. THANKYOU!!!!!!!!!!!
I like the sound of this lick.
Very is to understand
