While playing to backing tracks recorded recently for this workshop by LA studio musicians, Tim Pierce will demonstrate multiple guitar soloing concepts. The focus will be on how to play fluid seamless solos over sometimes unpredictable chord changes. After each musical example, there will be an explanation on the psychology behind the choices that are made while improvising. The emphasis will be on “why” just as much as “how.”
In over three decades as a first-call LA session musician, Tim Pierce has amassed discography of over 1,000 records, in multiple genres — from Bruce Springsteen, Michael Jackson, and Phil Collins to Jason Mraz, Rascal Flatts, Kelly Clarkson, and Lana Del Rey, among hundreds of others.
