Easy Guitar Solo Idea Over The G Chord


Here’s an easy guitar solo idea you can use while playing over a G chord.

I’m going to make this one quick because you can watch the video and really see what I’m talking about a little better.

If you’re interested in soloing, you will find it helpful to learn more chord shapes around the guitar fretboard. This makes things much more simple to see. If you don’t know what I mean by that, I recommend looking into the CAGED system. Now there is a little controversy about how the CAGED system is good or bad. But really, even though you may not want to literally practice the CAGED system, You will still find it helpful in understanding how the guitar notes are laid out over the fretboard.

Anyway, right here I’ve taken a simple “D chord” Shape and shifted it up to the 7th and 8th fret so that it now sounds like a G chord. It that point, I find 3 other notes in the G Major Scale, in this case the 4th string on frets 5,7 and 9, and I get used to applying those notes in with the chord.

Once I get used to this, get used to the shape and notes, then I practice different arrangements and put them into rhythm. Check it out Here. Easy Guitar Solo idea over G chord.

Hopefully this will shed some light on the fretboard for you. I’ll have a couple more videos coming up on this topic, so keep an eye out.

Talk soon.
