I`d concentrate on picking out and learning the chords from a song first, quite often it`ll make picking out the tune/solo licks easier once you know what the chord structures and keys of the songs are etc. thats quite often a little trickier than picking out melody lines by ear as the chords arnt always going to be straight bar or power chords.

could one of you just post a tiny lick, slow and about four notes, then I'll try to figure out the tab and I'll post it. That might be a training for all people who realy haven't done it before. For me for instance, a TV tune is still to hard I think.. So can anyone do that? just plain lick or maybe a small part like:

I liked that idea. What if we create a topic, on recording board?
Someone records a lick and post like you mentioned. The next person has to tab and record the same lick the first person did. And in addition to that it has to record his own lick. So the third person has to figure out what the second one did!

In that we could have fun figuring out the licks from each other and at the same time learning it and training the ears.
To make it easier for beginners we could have it separate per speed. 1 topic for 8th notes (or slower), another for 8th notes triplets, 16th notes, 16th triplets and 32nd notes. A fixed tempo (120 bpm?)

Let´s call it lick chat?? laugh.gif

Well I guess if you do ear training , you can than cheat on some songs that you want to learn fast....But if you don't do separate ear training , than you should try to learn songs by ear than (to train it)..

Lick it! Same like a name for a adult product smile.gif laugh.gif

What about just calling it guitar chat?

Afterall it could be also used for rhythm figures, not only licks... Just has to be limited in time. Maybe 10 seconds , so that we keep the thing rolling.

EDIT: I started the topics.

I would love to make first entry, but my POD X3 went for repairing... So I have nothing to do proper recording...
