Hey Neal

I did my first steps by searching tracks without guitar.

I was not especially a good lead player and I figure out that I have also increased my chords playing skills.

So... ;)

Neal, as someone who also plays lead, there is no easy way of finding tracks where just the lead is missing. What I do is search for tracks without any guitar, let's say with drums + bass and maybe vocals, and look at these trees to see what is possible. Another method is, I listen a lot to the "latest jams" wiki radio station, and when I hear something that I like I put it in my playlist - even if there is already a solo on it, and when I get the urge to play something I search my own saved playlist...

Another method you could use is look at some of our amazing guitarists such as our own RobM, he does a lot of solo tracks, and do your version of that track. I have to warn you though, whenever I hear one of Rob's tracks I feel like giving up playing guitar :D

Cheers, TG
