Just out of curiosity, as I've been thinking about this these last couple of days. What is the definition of a lick? Length-wise etc?

As far as I know you can consider a lick as "a combination of notes, often based out of scales or chords". It has no defined minimum number of bars/notes etc smile.gif

For this thread I think this 'definition' would suffice perfectly. It can be quite long, although you reach the point of it being kind of a solo maybe, but can also be ultra short (as long as they are cool I am fine with it smile.gif).

Cool. I seem to prefer making shorter licks, as that is kinda what I can comprehend doing at the moment. (I don't know...I'm feeling a bit off beat at the moment concerning all.)

Don't worry man, your licks are fine ... indeed quite long, but I am happy with your contributions and we can just see them as several licks combined tongue.gif

I will do a few tonight.

I was getting a bit frustrated with everything yesterday, as there was a big VERY important meeting today at work (currently going on) and everything had to be going 100% correct, and I have to make sure it does. Besides that I have about 23 to-do tasks. Now half way through the day, and half way through the 3 meetings today everything seems to be running smoothly, so I'm quite happy with that. However, yesterday, I fell asleep when I came home (or about 1½-2 hours after I came home) and I then woke up when it was about 8:15 in the evening, and I was sure it was morning and that I had slept too late and everything was very chaotic.

No more chatting it up and complaining now though. I will return to this thread with a few licks tonight. smile.gif

Here we have a Paul Gilbert style string skipping lick in E minor. It is really two licks but they sound good played one after the other. The first part is an F# diminished arpeggio, in 16th triplets, followed by an 8th note. I play the first string legato, the next alternate picking, and the final one legato. This is something Paul does quite a lot in his runs. The second part is an Em arpeggio, in 16th triplets, followed by an 8th note. I follow the same picking pattern as before. This lick sounds best played in the last bar of a chord progression.

Sorry guys, but no video this time around.

A minor pentatonic lick across the neck

This lick is very much inspired by both Guthrie Govan and our very own Muris (jumping lessons). It's again a sequenced lick, which could actually be played in just your regular A-minor pentatonic position, but to spice things up I keep moving it up the neck. We end with a bend from G to A on the B-string.

My pleasure. Might do a few more tonight.

I do hope for some more participants, as I don't want to be the only one keeping this one alive :-)

Yeah, I have exactly the same feeling. I have quite a few licks I could share, however I don't want to select my own licks for the competition. I find it quite surprising that we only have 5 active participants with these member licks, whilst the enthousiasm was much bigger when the idea emerged a couple of months ago. I actually thought that I needed to choose from several entries every day, but currently I have to find and find until I have one that I did not select before tongue.gif.

I just came home now, and I'm sorry, but I'm not going to be able to record anything.

I don't mind you using your own licks, by the way :-)

Sorry for the vague description, Velvet. Feel free to add some more, if you want :-)

F#minor lick




This lick is built around a basic F#minor arpeggio, but has some notes that add various flavors to the chord. It uses slides and string skipping to make it a little more interesting.
