Jarle H Olsen: Sophisticated Metal Soloing

Sophisticated Metal Soloing

Jarle H. Olsen returns at JTC with 5 brand new tracks to demonstrate how you can incorporate a fusion of Rock and Jazz elements into your own metal tracks to create kick-ass sophisticated sounding metal solos!

Filled with complex melodic and harmonic concepts, a technical workout for even the more competent shredders and heaps of melody and musicality, these tracks will help to solidify you as a musician and improve every aspect of playing an expressive jam that's cranked up to the max!

Jarle says 'I created 5 new solos and jam tracks tailor made for this package. I wanted to create an interesting package with as much focus on musicality as the technical aspects. The tonal and rhythmical challenges of each track will strength your awareness as a player, I've covered a lot of ground from various modes, keys and meter changes to many essential techniques. Overall, this is a very solid workout for any ambitious player!'

On the theory side we have a wealth of scales and melodic devices from phygian dominant, super locrian, melodic minor, harmonic minor scales, to phrygian, lydian, dorian and aeolian modes. You'll also find strategically placed chromatic passing tones, diminished arpeggios and more!

For the techniques in this rocking pack you'll studying and using a host of essential rock/metal techniques, from simple bending/sliding and vibrato techniques all the way up to the more complicated techniques such as three note per string legato runs, tapping, string skipping, sweep picking and plenty of alternate and economy picking!

So if you're looking for new inspiration and to blow the dust off of your musical and technical chops then this is the pack you need to help push your abilities to the next level!

As ever, we have included everything you need to practise and perfect the material in this package. There are video and audio tracks for you to watch/listen and study, accurately transcribed TAB/notation for you to analyse and master, and backing tracks for everything! We've even included some text notes to help you really get these parts down!
