Stratotron: Just type it in or describe it in words or notes etc.

This is probably going to be a drag to read, but, what else does one do on break waiting for rain in So Cal? Hope it works.
I am going to write it like this- S3f7 which means string 3 fret 7. S1f6-7 =String 1 slur or slide or hammer fret 6 to 7.

S3f7- S2f6- S3f7- S1f6-7- S2f8- S1f0- S3f7- S2f0- S3f8- S3f0- S5f7- S5f0

Basically this is a simple scale as if you were starting on the 1st string G at the third fret and playing a descending G-E-D-B-A-G-E-D. The first 4 notes and including the slur are a pickup to the scale. The trick is you are picking up half of the notes at the 7th or 8th frets and the other ones on open strings. Play them hybrid style with a pick and let your index finger grab the open notes, and let the open notes ring. Play the slur with you first finger so you line up to fret the 8 and 7 fret notes with first and second finger alternately “walking” across the fret board.
I include this as a favorite lick because, after I picked this up hanging around a local music store, the concept lead me to a whole bunch of other things to play like this. It also made me re-think string/note adjacencies.
This happens to be in G, and is a snappy little lick when you get it up to speed.
As Roy Clark once said "Amaze you friends and get invited out alot!"

O.k. I've given a little thought about how to do a post here for a while so I make an attempt.

For starters, I'll do an easy riff that every one has heard because it works in all types of music but got its traction in swing and rock-a-billy.

I'll describe the riff, which is really just a series of three double stop patterns, these patterns can be moved up or down 1/2 step when going from the I to the IV in a progression and back again.

So, if we were playing in the key of A (I) my 1st double stop..DS.. is 1st,9fr 2st, 8fr...That is, first string(high E string at the ninth fret simultaneously fretting the B string at the 8th fret. the next part(2nd of 3) is 2st 8fr, 3st 6fr and the 3rd DS is 3st 6fr 4st 5ft. That series of double stops would sound good on top of an A13,A6 chord

When you move to the IV chord those double stop positions I've described just slide down one fret and start over, and get played over the IV chord.(D7)

When playing some bluesier sounding tempos I just hang on one or two of the DS sections and add vibrato, deep bends, or hop back and forth between them. That's about it, I hope I made sense!

That's pretty funny Statotron Your post wasn't there when I started mine! Yours makes sense to me though, its tuff to describe this type of activity, kinda like explaining to someone how to balance on a bicycle!

Looking for a good short usable lick from somebody. Post one you actually use a lot. Describe how to actually play it and where you use it. With what context.

I don't know if this has a name (as a single operation), but it's a combination of a pluck, a hammer-on, a slide, and a bend, all on the same string. Here's an example:

Index finger on the B string, 5th fret. Pluck the string. Hammer on the B string, 7th fret with ring finger. Smoothly slide that up to the 10th fret and bend the note up a full step. The smoother and less choppy you do this, the better it sounds.

----5---h7sl/---10b/----

The key is smoothness, and strike the string only once (5th fret).

It is stoopid simple to do and sounds really hot-rod slick, like I might actually know what I'm doing. If it doesn't have a name, then call it a peegoo :o)

You can vary the slide distance too, depending on where you want to go next on the neck. I use this to go up the neck to the next position.

I also use this backwards: ghost bend with ring finger, slide down, pull off to the index finger. This gets you down the neck.

You can also go down to an open string this way. Adding a trill with the index finger is pretty tasty too.

Where are those licks ???

Beginners, Intermediate and Advanced players want to know what YOUR favorite usable licks are.

Upload or describe some that work for you. Show your "work horse" licks, riffs, phrases or chords etc. What's in your toolbox? For old guys, where's the beef? I know you are playing them.

Where are Tyrone, Vic and all those other great guitar or bass players? Stop hoarding those licks and share them here please. At least one.

We are overworking Peegoo, Stratotron, and those few already here. They share.

Or are you taking the 5th ??? Post something.

Just trying to spark up & energize the ole Chop Shop ...

Afterall, how are others to learn if not from you?

"Magicman: How do you actually play it?"

I honestly have no clue how to play it woodall.

I've done a few google searches for tabs for it without much luck.

It's just always been a favorite of mine, a really cool ending to a really cool song..

Magicman,

I'm assuming you're not referring to the "cha cha cha" ending to Lonesome Tears In My Eyes, but the little lick that opens and closes the tune :o)

This was invented a hundred years before the Beatles came along. It was a blues fixture before it was adopted by country, pop, and rock.

Chuck Berry got rich off this double-stop wackiness too.

Here tiz.

Cool stuff Scott-s. Right on the mark. Licks remind me a little of smooth jazz on Watercolors channel 66 Sirius. With a nice funk touch. Learned them and poked them in my riff toolbox. Already using them. Goes great with blues.

And thanks Peegoo for the tab on Magicmans licks. I used those type double stops a lot. Parts are in Margaritaville tune by Jimmy Buffet. They are super useful in all types of music. Even Stairway to Heaven middle.

Now we are cooking with gas ... great job !!!

Thanks woodall, Its a good project for me as well, so far as computer 101 stuff goes. My daughter had it all figured out faster than it took me type this! ha, ha.

Tabs are great, but for me, with out some sort of context I have a hard time really knowing what the notes should sound like. That's why I added two very different backing tracts along with a few chords and in different keys. Of course not all riffs work for every style but those were pretty generic.

I think I'll try to send some different blues progressions next, sometimes I get tired of the I IV V type. Guys I jam with will often use some different chord progressions to change things up a bit.... Later!
