Lick Of The Week Guitar Lessons

All guitar players love licks. It is simply fun to take a cool little part from a solo that sticks out to you and try to figure out what it is.

This Lick Of The Week guitar lesson series below is meant to be a fun way of perhaps inspiring you a little bit while possibly exposing you to a style or technique you might not be familiar with.

I want the licks to be as versatile as possible so you will find licks on both electric and acoustic and from just about every conceivable style of music.

If you find a lick that you think sounds cool try and add it to your own stockpile of licks that you throw out in your own solos. All guitar players have a certain stockpile of licks they like to fall back on so maybe some of these below will make it into yours.

I encourage to take a lick you like and expand on it. Play it in other keys, different strings or whatever else you can think of to get all the musical use you can out of it.

Also, if there is a lick that you would like for me to cover please let me know about it. I am doing a new one of these Lick Of The Week guitar lessons every week so I want to know what you guys want to see!

Have fun! Carl..
