CLICHÉ LICKS
Clichés are those very common licks that are
used by all guitarists – blues, rock, heavy metal.
These licks can be heard on nearly every guitar
band CD. Of course there are many variations on
each cliché, so be sure to check solos for any use
of a cliché.
Be sure to learn the sound of each cliché, so that
you will recognize them instantly on a CD. Often
you can figure out much of a solo by hearing the
use of clichés.
A hidden benefit of learning these clichés is that
you will sound like an experienced guitarist - to
yourself and to others.
It’s self- rewarding because you sound like an
awesome rock guitarist – you feel as though as
you are really improving. Then it’s pleasing as you
hear other people say how much they like the way
you play and sound (because you sound like the
CD’s they’ve been listening to.)
