Saturday Shredder

One of the simplest and most effective things to help my soloing came from something I read in an interview years ago with Primus guitarist Larry Lalonde. The idea is that, since music is organized into arrangements of whole and half steps, if you hit a “wrong” note in your solo, then that automatically means that there are “right” notes on either side of that “wrong” note. And then the “wrong” note becomes a “passing tone”.

Here’s Primus with their classic Jerry Was a Race Car Driver.
