Rock Licks 2.0 Repeating Phrase Toolkit
This lesson pack is Part Two of our Rock Licks lesson series. Rock Licks 2.0 Repeating Phrase Toolkit includes 20 essential rock guitar licks that use the pentatonic scale to make awesome sounding rock phrases. It starts with easier licks, then gradually increases in difficulty. Once you learn a few of the phrases, they can be used together to craft solos or add spice to your playing.
Video examples for each lick (fast and slow tempos), a Backing Track, tablature and notation pdf, as well as scale charts, and a GUITAR PRO FILE ARE INCLUDED!
These phrases are setup to give you many of the different approaches used to make awesome licks using the minor pentatonic scale, the blues scale, as well as arpeggios. Everything is based in E minor. These exercises give ideas you can practice to really get the sound and the feel of this type of playing in your ears and under your hands. Practicing scales, licks and phrases this way is really great for building your speed, accuracy, and overall technique.
Use the backing track to learn, and apply the different scale types. If you need work learning the patterns, you can work each scale with quarter, eighth, triplets, sixteenths, and sixteenth note triplets. Then do the same with each lick example, practice the licks back to back as you get better at them.
For the final step start mixing the licks in with your phrases and ideas to maximize how much you take away from this lesson pack.
