Challenge Ben 8


Hello my guitar abusing buddies ! I've been meaning to upload this lick for ages but now at last I can present you with Lick 8 !!

It's a slippery legato run, going into an ascending A Minor sweep, sliding up to a pull off and a tapped high note ! Confusing ? Yep, I know ! Don't worry, the tab should explain everything. smile.gif

Excellent, another jazzy interlude - love it !

I bet it was tricky to play on a clean setting ?

Ha, ha - yeah. I also did it (the lick) on an electric sitar. I didn't get it as legato and 'connected' as I would have liked to.
I obviously adjusted the key of the harmony (G7) and consequently I had to 'adjust' the lick a little. The elec sitar doesn't enough frets either and bending is funky on it above the 15th fret.
This lick's a keeper - it's good over dominant chords as well as both major and minor. I'm kinda lazy. I like licks I can play over anything biggrin.gif .

*I don't listen to your version before I go about working them into something. I just read it.
The first one you posted you essentially said "do it any way you want to" ... which is pretty much where I live.
I listen to your's and anybody else's after I've uploaded my version. I'm always super impressed how friggin' clean and precise all you guys are. I cannot play like that (even when I use that much gain).

Extra respect to you then ! I think it's harder to learn a lick from just tab etc without hearing it being played.

I don't know if it's harder. I'm 50. I even pre-date soundpages with tab (or notation).
Since they are just licks/lines sort of 'in space' - no harmony and no rhythm behind them - to me they are just a collection of notes. Not hearing you do it first allows me to see/hear that collection of notes in at least a few ways. I didn't even read what you said about it so I missed the Am part. I heard it and visualized it in G7. I'm sure a byproduct of my 'jazz' leanings.
