Get pumped as we dive deep into the world of lead guitar in this lesson that was recorded live with campfire guitar star. In this lesson, I demonstrate a super easy guitar technique that makes solos and riffs sound massive.

We are going to be taking advantage of open strings to add a drone over our solos! By simply adding an open string, you turn every guitar lick into a chord. The best way to learn anything on the guitar is to start with songs.

We are going to use real song examples from Our Lady Peace, Rage Against the Machine, The Cult, Smashing Pumpkins (and a few others too) I can honestly say this easy guitar technique of applying open strings to riffs and solos is one of the funnest things you can play on an electric guitar.

Make sure to tune in every Wednesday night for a new live lesson from campfire guitar star! Most of the time when you are playing any kind of guitar leads, you are getting into intermediate level territory. However, due to the open strings, these solos and riffs are all very achievable for a beginner as well. Enjoy this totally free guitar lesson!
