In this course we look at how to create more interesting solos. Learning what scales and notes can be used for soloing is only the beginning, The Craft Of Soloing teaches us how we can take that information and turn it into an artistic musical expression.
The course begins with a primer on thinking about Music As a Language. From there we look at how to Discover Motifs,the musical ideas that make up the themes in a solo. We then look at how to Develop Motifs Melodically and Rhythmically, which can be used to create a sense of coherence throughout a solo. We will then discuss some Practicing Tips as well as Common Pitfalls that lead to uninteresting solos. Finally we will Put It All Together as I break down an entire solo, looking at how we can incorporate everything this course teaches in a practical setting.
