Subject: RE: Need to learn to play leads.....
One good tutorial that really helped me was "Exploring the Fingerboard" by Russ Barenburg. You can find it at Homespun Tapes. He teaches you scales, modes and arpeggios and how to apply them to some familiar songs and some not so familiar ones in a way that's easy to understand. It does require a lot of time and effort but at least you'll have a guitar in your hands to keep you company. Another thing I've done is to learn my favorite solos right off the record which is fun and helps you develop a good ear. vl
