Silent Lucidity Guitar Lesson Videos – Queensryche

In this free Silent Lucidity guitar lesson series you will learn Queensryche's extremely popular power ballad in it's entirety.

Written by the band's then lead guitarist Chris Degarmo, Silent Lucidity has plenty of cool guitar challenges to sync your teeth into.

To start, we will cover the acoustic fingerstyle intro. Besides the fingerstyle technique required to play it, you will also have to deal with a few large shifts as well.

From there we switch to the electric guitar parts focusing on the gorgeous arpeggiated picking sequences.

Then to wrap up this free Silent Lucidity guitar lesson video series we will take a look at the epic guitar solo. This solo incorporates some large one and a half step pre-bends that can be quite tricky to nail correctly. Practicing this solo over and over is a great exercise in keeping your bends in tune.

When you get this song together and play it through in it's entirety you really get a close up look at how beautiful the guitar parts in Silent Lucidity are. When it comes to power ballads, I think Silent Lucidity is definitely one of the most well put together ballads in history.

So have fun with this Silent Lucidity guitar lesson series! Carl..
