Take The Lead

Lead guitar is exactly what it sounds like: the player that gets to be in the spotlight. Most of the guitarists we all know by name play lead guitar: Jimi Hendrix, Eric Clapton, Jimmy Page, B.B. King, Stevie Ray Vaughan, Chuck Berry, Carlos Santana, Slash, Tom Morello…the list goes on.

Lead guitar is all about creating melody using single-note-based lines and double stops. The iconic songs we love usually include lead guitar solos and riffs that are instantly recognizable. To play lead, you need to master basic scales and arpeggios and specific techniques such as alternate picking, sweep picking, hammer ons, and pull offs with embellishments like bending, vibrato, and slides. At JamPlay, we have guitar courses that cover all of these skills from absolute beginner level to advanced.
