Get Expressive Phrasing & Articulation.
If you struggle to express yourself fully in your guitar solos, you are like most guitar players. Has this ever happened to you? You learn a solo, note-for-note and spend a lot of time learning, practicing and mastering it.
Then when you play the solo, it just doesn’t sound good. You play all the right notes at the right time, but the notes lack expression, and it all just kind of sounds lame. The solo doesn’t seem to have the same fire, emotion and passion in the actual song.
If this sounds familiar, don’t feel bad. I was at that point not so long ago. I felt terrible about my guitar playing and did not even know what to do about it. I always used to wonder how guitar players used to be able to literally make the hair stand on my arm with their amazing solos. I could play all the techniques out there but couldn’t really use them to make the notes come alive. I used to think maybe I didn’t possess the ability to make my solos sound good, and my bends always sounded like a cat crying!
The worst thing – guitar teachers often don’t know how to teach guitar phrasing. I tried looking for someone to teach me phrasing skills. I interviewed many teachers on the phone and in person – not one mentioned phrasing skills! It was the usual, “What guitar do you want to learn? What songs do you want to learn?”
If you have similar challenges in your playing, you need help with your phrasing skills. Phrasing skills go beyond just playing the right notes at the right time. Its about HOW you play the notes to make jaw-dropping and face-melting expressions in your solos.
Imagine if you could just make every single note you play on the guitar sound awesome! Pretty much anything you play will sound amazing, and everyone will wonder what you are doing to make it sound so good. Have you ever seen a great guitar player pick up a crappy guitar and still sound great? Its all in the tone from the fingers and more importantly, phrasing!
Ever heard a solo and straightaway knew who the guitar player was just by listening? That’s because the guitar player has such a high level of phrasing skills that he or she has their own unique way of playing the notes. What if you could emulate exactly the way your favourite guitar player hero phrases notes? What if you could develop your phrasing skills and have a unique sound that is just specific to YOU?

I did improved my phrasing a lots in terms of understanding and pratically. I can play new stuff and be able to play the song that i think quite hard before.
My guitar phrasing is sucks! before I started phrasing lessons. I always ‘fishing’ around with my scales and notes. Now, i more confident and not hesitate to pick the next note when i’m doing my solo phrasing.
