    EAR TRAINING: How to Play on Guitar What You Hear in Your Head

    I am posting this video — hopefully some of you might find it useful. But going by this example, it’s by taking a tune you already know and picking out the notes on the guitar. That’s not a hard thing to do at all. I was hoping it answered the question in regards to improvisation. You know, it’s easy to take the chord changes and to do an ad-lib with vocals, but a little more difficult with the guitar, unless you follow learned patterns.

    But if what you’re trying to visualize in your head contains 16th notes or triplets over a standard beat, there are a lot of guitar fingering possibilities that you aren’t going to think of when you consider the solo in your head. For examples, try to visualize pull-offs and bends while thinking about the melody for the solo.

    I think the only way to even get close, is by practice, and knowing what the notes are going to sound like before you play them.
