Description

It's very hard to play an awesome solo without the proper 'phrasing'...

Imagine talking to someone who always spoke in the same tone, at the same pace and stopping at exactly the same spots. Would you believe anything they tell you?

Probably not right? Because they don't sound genuine or even human.

If you want your audience to feel something during your solo's, you're going to have to be believeable. To be believable your solo itself must have that extra “human element" to it.

That's where phrasing comes in.

Problem is, most people have no idea what phrasing even is or how to begin finding their own “voice" in their solos.

Most people try to “copy" the style other guitarists.

While it's great to learn from the masters, what most people end up doing is trying to become something they're not.

Not everyone can tap like Eddie Van Halen. If you try to force it, you'll only become a subpar copy…

Here's What You Can Do

Steve Stine, Professor of Modern Guitar Studies at North Dakota State University, decided to take his more than 25 years of teaching and playing guitar to make a short course aimed specifically at teaching people how to build their own explosive solos in their own style and strengths.

The outcome was this course...

6 Secrets to Successful Solos will get you building your own phrases and melodies and ultimately solos, starting from the ground up so don't worry if you've never played a solo before in your life.

If you haven't heard of Steve before, just know that he's very well known at North Dakota State University and is a highly sought-after Professor of Modern Guitar.

After earning his music education degree from Minnesota State University Moorhead, he went on to play in literally dozens of bands over the last 16 years touring the U.S. and England. He's been a studio guitarist for radio, television and various recording projects. And he even acted in a movie once.

He's taught private, group, and online guitar instruction for over 25 years to literally thousands of students. Many of his students attend colleges nationwide to study music and play in bands, notably, Shannon Curfman, who performs withKid Rock.

He's taught music at Red River Valley Montesorri school for over 10 years. And was guitar instructor at Elevate Rock School in Fargo, North Dakota. And despite the tattoos, long hair, and shredder-style guitar, he's a family-man. And even finds time to volunteer his talents to plays guitar in his church.
