Copycat Solo #1

Welcome to your first copycat solo session! It’s pretty simple; first, I’ll play the first four bars of the solo over the jam track, then the jam track will repeat the same four bars and you’ll have a turn, with the tab showing on screen. Then we’ll do the whole thing once more! This is the first time I’ve used this particular technique on video, so I’d love to hear your thoughts and comments about its effectiveness.

This is working well for me on my second pass through these lessons. Having concentrated on learning the phrases on the first pass, I can now go for the timing against the chords. Trying to do both on a first pass was WAY too much! I found myself skipping the Copycat stages, but I’m picking them up on the second time around.

I think this technique is very useful and fun. Also it gives a lot of motivation. Thanks. - April 18, 2023 Reply

I believe your tab for Phrase 3 is off. Your tab shows after sliding to the 12th frets on strings 2 and 4 to pick the notes again and then slide to the 14th fret. When you play it you don’t pick the notes after sliding.
