Why this is A Game-Changer?

4th solo is a bit harder, but the first 3 are actually beginner-friendly. Especially the first one. Start from that and then tackle the rest. When you do this, you will notice how much more comfortable you are with playing solos and licks.

3rd solo even has a bit of tapping on it, but trust me, it’s a lot easier than it sounds. You will sound pretty cool after nailing the tapping part of 3rd solo.
