Constructing a rock or pop solo could be compared to baking a cake. The solo consists of several elements or ingredients which combine to make the final product. The improvised solo may consist of such elements as: scales, sequences, arpeggios, double stops and licks. The material in this book will help you to master one of those elements, which is licks. Licks are a series of notes which have a catchy sound. They may be repeated over and over in the solo. They are so commonly used that they may be call rock clich‚àö¬©s. When the licks (or rock clich‚àö¬©s) in this book are combined with scales and other elements of a solo, they will give you solo an authentic, professional, classy sound. Audio available online.
