Re: What is guitar licks

It's when you lick your guitar, usually during a hot and sweaty solo

@Bluesh1ft is right: Riffs are your meat and potatoes (typically chords) that tend to repeat. A lick would be like a one-off lead to add fillers / excitement to a track, similar-ish to drum fills. A solo is kind of like your 'main lick' in a weird way

Re: What is guitar licks

I think its just another term for melody/solo. Kinda like riff let me check. Ah yeah so there is a bit of difference.

https://music.stackexchange.com/ques...iff-and-a-lick

So licks tend to be less of a theme of a song and more of a little filler type of section that can be found sometimes in more than one song. So it may indicate more of the style of play genre just some fancy little thing to put it in there and a riff is more unique, more along the lines of standing out of the mix with a more thematic reason.

How many licks does it take to get to the center of a pop....song? I tried.

Re: What is guitar licks

When I think of guitar licks I'd say they are a pool of prepared lead lines that you draw upon when improvising lead lines.

Riffs would cover the more chunky rhythm single note stuff.

Re: What is guitar licks

in modern english, it's called "wanking" or "how to get kicked out of guitar center"

If that were the truth, guitar center wouldn't have any customers.

Also, the guitar community in general hasn't done itself any favours regarding lead playing equating wanking. However I think guitar solos have been in the penalty box long enough.

this is it. In jazz schools, they teach you licks over common chord progressions that you have to transpose in every tonality for practice. Then you solo and people go "it's nice how you sound like bird" "oh I liked that album too by Clifford Brown"
