This special reference volume is designed for all guitarists. Arranged for quick, easy reference, it contains 101 stylistic phrases, commonly known as “licks” -those essential, self-contained instrumental figures utilized by the great masters. Licks are part and parcel of the rock tradition and the rock experience. They are short, meaningful passages skilfully tucked into songs and riffs, and laced through the solos of the repertory. The audience may not hear them or even be aware of them, but they can always be felt. A well-turned lick can make the difference between a cold, mechanical statement and a communicative, engaging performance. The right lick driven by the energy and conviction of a seasoned player can bring the audience to its knee.
