In a shameless bid to steal your tricks, I thought it would be a good idea to start a thread for simple 1 - 2 bar licks. Get yer licks in...or more accurately, please give them. Stones

Here is what I had in mind.

G-run bluegrass lick

I wrote this one without any idea of where I could put it...so I'll put it up for grabs...

---------------------------------

----2-------2-------2---------2--
--2---2---2---2---0---0----0-----
0-------3-------2-------0-------3

I usually play it in D tuning, but it'll sound fine anywhere...

Hmmm...kind of quiet

And here I was thinking you all would be thrilled to share your simple licks within our guitar community. Okay, I will go again. But I have to warn you I can't keep this pace up for very long.:rockon2:

Another G run (damn hillbilly music)

What is a lick exactly ?
Don't know if this counts as one , but I think it sounds cool as a filler in solos .
(play pretty fast , with a two 16th one 8th beat )

I have no licks. Everything I play I either stole from BB or from someone else who stole it from him. Doesn't matter if it's hard rock or country, I still end up somewhere in the 3 BB 'boxes'. Sure I'm in the blues scale rut, but I'm happy there.

A couple things I like to toss in:
[12(14) means strike on 12th fret, bend up a tone, etc]

invoke the 7th (or 9th) on the change to the 4th, here it's in A, so change is to D:

A......................D
----------------|------------------------10-----------------
----------------|----------------------10--10---13(15)------
----------------|----------------12(14)---------------------
-----7---6---5--|4------------------------------------------
----------------|--------------------------------------------
----------------|--------------------------------------------

and sometimes I like to resolve out of the minor scale when coming back to the root chord, here it's coming out of the 4th(D) to the 1st(A) (sustain the C and roll up to the C#, add some vibrato to the C#)

D.................................A

How are you doing your tabs, the hard way??? or is there a template or something to help out ?
I copied it in from Word, then dicked around with the Font button and the "Preview Post" button down below.
I'd love it if there was a template...
