More about this course

Do you wish you could be a better lead guitar player?

Do you wish you could play a guitar solo?

I have a lot of students that ask me to create a course that helps them with lead guitar. This is what I've done with this course. In this course I show you how to play a 12 measure guitar solo. This solo is designed for a beginner or an intermediate guitar player. I will not only teach you how to play the solo but I also explain how I created the solo. 

What will you get in this course?

  • I perform the guitar solo for you
  • I explain how I created the guitar solo
  • I teach you measure by measure how to play the guitar solo
  • I explain how to use the backing track
  • I provide you with a backing track to practice the guitar solo
  • You will get a PDF of the guitar tablature for the guitar solo
  • You will get a PDF of the guitar tablature for the guitar solo with rhythm analysis
  • Mp3 of the backing music for the guitar solo that plays 1 time, 2 times, and 3 times (in case you want to record the solo)
  • Mp3 of the backing music for the guitar solo that plays 10 times (for practicing the solo and for improvisation)

Why should you sign up for my course?

  • My name is Chris Rupp and I'm the founder of the GuitArmy.
  • I've been teaching guitar full time for over 20 years.
  • I have taught more then 35,000 individual private guitar lessons.
  • I teach guitar students online all over the world.
  • I have a bachelors of music degree from the world renowned Berklee College of Music where I studied with some of the best guitar players on earth. 
  • I created a successful line of guitar instruction DVDs that sold very well and garnered the attention of the "As Seen on TV" folks.
  • I love teaching guitar and helping students become better musicians through the guitar.
  • I will answer your personal questions and help you with learning the material in this lesson.

With GuitArmy guitar lessons on Arbington you will learn: basic open chords, power chords, barre chords, scales, major scales, minor scales, learn to solo, improvisation, beginner guitar lessons, intermediate guitar lessons, advanced guitar lessons, guitar riffs, rock licks, guitar licks, rhythm guitar, songwriting, modes on guitar, how to read guitar tablature, play a guitar solo, triads for guitar, and much more. 

Why should I take your class and not just learn from YouTube?

You can try to learn guitar from YouTube but eventually you'll figure out there's so many videos out there is very hard to put the information together in a coherent way. I have students come to me all the time that are tired of watching random guitar videos on YouTube and don't know how to put the information together. With this class you can get a very experienced teacher that can assist you with the learning process. 

The course project

Play the guitar solo

I've attached several charts and mp3's to this project to help you. 

For this project I would like you to demonstrate your ability to play the guitar solo.

You can do this project by:

  • uploading a link to a video of you playing the guitar solo.
  • upload an mp3 of you playing the guitar solo.
  • Last but not least, if the first 2 options seem too hard to do you can just upload pictures of yourself playing the guitar solo.

Another option for this project:

Create your own guitar solo and record it.

You can do this project by:

  • uploading a link to a video of you playing the guitar solo.
  • upload an mp3 of you playing the guitar solo.
  • Last but not least, if the first 2 options seem too hard to do you can just upload pictures of yourself playing the guitar solo.

Any participation would be greatly appreciated.
