LICK OF THE DAY

II V I in B flat

Here's a lick over a classic Jazz progression: the II V I (C-7, F7, BbM7)

We are playing over the Cm7 the EbM7 arpeggio which is giving us the F bebop dominant scale (we add an E as a passing tone) and over the BbM7 I choose
to suggest the lydian mode by playing an FM7 arpeggio.

Use the neck pickup and cut the high freqs with the tone knob if necessary.
I use the Mesa Boogie V-Twin preamp on the clean channel connected directly to the sound card and I'm adding a little bit of reverb and compression in Pro Tools.

Wayne Ending

Typical Kenny Wayne ending phrase lick. You can listen to these types of licks in his album "Live on". Play it with groove!

We're playing in the A minor pentatonic scale + blue note.

I use the middle pickup of my Ibanez Rg7620 guitar, a Line 6 Pod X3 Live, with a Twin reverb Preamp + Tubescreamer pedal.

Country Lick In G

Here's a cool country lick in G, using the chicken picking technique : the pick, middle & ring finger.

The lick is in the key of G and we will use G Major & minor pentatonic scales.

Use the bridge pickup to get that classic country twang tone. Also use a compression pedal/plug-in with lot of compression as we want a highly "squished" sound. Add some reverb and a slap-back delay (100ms to 300ms with a single repeat).
