The Recipe for Lead Guitar
is made up of a mixture of ingredients. Just like when cooking and you need the right ingredients added together to make up the whole. If you don't have all the ingredients, it won't taste right.
The same goes for playing lead. In this section, we'll talk about
and most importantly- Feeling.
Feeling is what music is all about.
The music you listen to, play, and write will be a reflection of who you are. Think about what you like and how it makes you feel. If you forget this, your mixture of music, will be incomplete and won't sit right with you or your listeners.
Take another step back. If you take the guitar, the drums, or vocals out of a song it won't sound complete.
Finding the right recipe isn't easy. There is no right or wrong way to play lead. But you have to know what the ingredients are before you start cooking.
One last thing to keep in mind- above all else, Play What Sounds Good.
