I can’t play guitar for shit. Well, actually, it’s becoming increasingly evident that i think much more like a rhythm guitarist than like a soloist or lead guitarist. For one thing, a solo infers having some sort of rhythm to solo to, of which i have none other than my own. Essentially, i’m all about being able to strip a song down to a solo version, and so i have no use for solo-ing tricks Furthermore, i don’t really know how to construct a good solo; i know how to do it with music theory and with scales, but i can’t write anything worthwhile past a four bar fill. While this revelation at first upset me a bit, i then realized that hardly any of my favourite albums are solo-laden, just riff laden. And, riffs are cool. Yeah… so, don’t expect any big guitar solos on my next disc. Just thought i’d warn you.
