Hi guitar addicts. Check out these 4 Rock/Blues licks every guitarist should know. Very easy and effective. Enjoy ;-)
This lesson will teach you a lick in the style of Emil Werstler, it will help to improve your Sweep Picking, Alternate Picking and your general arpeggio knowledge.
Here is my little introduction into "two handed tapping" technique - (both hands over fretboard). Playing this way you'll reach very interesting (more like keyboard) sound on your guitar...and it looks very cool on stage ;) Steve Vai does the same in his song "Bulding The Church" !
The lick here is a Fusion lick that makes use of several techniques over a G Minor backing track. The main techniques used include economy picking and legato.
Here we have a free lick taken from the full lesson "On the Beach" solo study, based around the hard-rock style.
This short lick will show you how to merge a tapping and a picking phrase together.
This is a short neoclassical sounding alternate picking and string skipping lick. It will help you develop your right – left hand coordination and improve the precise movement of your pinky. Check it out.
This lick starts with a taste of B Dorian mode, then employs some chromaticisms to liven up some minor pentatonics in the upper register. It concludes with an outside sounding arpeggio sequence that lands on the root note.
This is some examples over how to play over an odd time signature and place some arpeggios that are not the standard sweep shapes.
This time we have something cool derived out of the position 2 in A blues scale. We're playing over a blues boogie in A, so this lick would fit perfectly in something like Joe Satriani's "Satch Boogie"
