Lead Guitar Lessons

Welcome to the Lead Guitar Quick-Start Series. The lessons in this section are perfect for guitarists that are interested in playing lead guitar or learning how to play guitar solos. While lead guitar is often associated with playing an electric guitar - the information in these lessons can also be applied to acoustic guitar.

It's recommended you go through the lessons in the order they are listed. That way you won't skip any important steps along the way. The most effective way to learn the guitar is to do things right the first time, so you don't have to correct any bad habits in the future.

This series covers a lot of information, so the biggest challenge may be in maintaining the patience required to work through each lesson individually. Focus on working through each lesson one at a time. You’ll be much more satisfied as you complete each exercise and your efforts will pay off in the end.
