BOX LICK VARIATIONS
It is very common to use licks you know but
change them a little bit. This is usually called
varying or developing the lick.
Two common ways of varying a lick are –
1. Rhythm Variations. Play the notes in the
same order but change their rhythm. You can
make notes longer or shorter; repeat notes;
add rests in.
2. Melodic Variations.
(a) Use the same notes but play them in
different orders.
(b) Add extra notes from the scale.
(c) Remember the easy trick of jumping
octaves.
Of course you can do both at the same time.
