Anyone who is willing to give it the time required can learn. But depending on what type of guitar you begin your journey on, the initial path can be a bit different. Below are the pros and cons of learning on either an acoustic or electric guitar.
What is the first thing that comes to mind when you think of playing a lead guitar solo? 98% of guitarists would immediately think of some scale or scale pattern; very few would think of using chord shapes.
Here is a very simple yet effective way to create powerful, musical solos...
Step 1: Begin with the basic chord progression of the song you want to solo over.
I'll use a simple three chord progression in the key of G.
G /// | D /// | C /// | C /// |
Step 2: Design a variety of chord shapes on a defined string grid.
String grids are essentially groups of three stings i.e., grid 1 = strings 1, 2 & 3; grid 2 = 2, 3 & 4; grid 3 = 3, 4 & 5 grid 4 = 4, 5 & 6.
Since we are working on lead guitar solos I would recommend using string grid 1.
Step 3: Using voice leading principles create your chord shapes from a predetermined point on the string grid; the best way to make sure you have all your options covered is to begin with the first chord and find as many ways to play this chord on the string grid you have selected.
How does this help you with your lead solos? Easy you simply pick any of the notes (strings) that are in your chord shapes.
Here is an example:
G chord = you could play
G chord = you could play
Try playing different string sequences and see how many new sounds you can come up with! Once you find a pattern you like change to the next chord in your chord progression and use the exact same picking sequence, then on to the next chord with the same picking sequence.

Even wondered how experienced guitarists seem to navigate their way through even the most difficult chord changes?
What they are playing does not seem to be physically difficult; in many cases the shapes look strangely familiar.
So what's the deal?
How do they know how to play all these complex chords?
- and how do they do it with ease?
The BIG secret is "plurality".
Now, I bet you weren't expecting that!
What the heck is plurality - it sounds like something you'd go to the doctor for treatment.
A "plurality" means a multiple functions.
Here's an example using the note "C", if we consider the many double functions that note could have in the various major scales.
Of course this is only just the tick of the musical iceberg.
If we extended our C chord one more step to create CMaj9 we would have many more possibilities.
CMaj9 = C-E-G-B-D
Can you see them?
CMaj9 = C-[E-G-B]-D
E minor = E-G-B
and G major G-B-D
CMaj9 = C-E-[G-B-D]
Again the same concept could apply as before the you could play G major chord over a C major background to create a C Maj9th harmony
You could also move between an E minor or G major chord /arpeggio to create a feeling of movement on a static C major vamp.
