Learning a guitar solo is a lot different then learning a guitar rhythm.  Solos are usually much longer and non-repeating.  Because of this fact, you will learn and memorize solos in small parts.


You can see on the solo below I have it separated into parts.  Learn and memorize part 1 and then part 2. Put them together as a whole. Next, learn part 3 and then put that together with part 1 and 2.  Repeat this process until the end.


After learning each part you will put them all together.  Remember to focus on the solo rhythm progression .  The chord in red is the beginning of each solo rhythm progression.
