About this title:

Synopsis: This guidebook teaches songwriters exactly how to create awesome solos that will really help their material stand out. Based on the study of nearly 900 songs from six decades of great music, it explains the musical role played by solos, illustrates which notes work over any chord sequence, and offers a comprehensive range of hints and tips for creating instrumental breaks that will enhance any song. An accompanying CD includes no fewer than 42 sample solos in a range of styles and moods. Separate backing tracks are a provided for the reader to work with and play over. For songwriting guitarists, the book goes beyond mere instrumental technique to demonstrate how lead guitar can be made to serve a song rather than simply decorating it. It also explores the wide range of other instruments that can be used to create really stunning solos.
