20 INNOVATIVE
MELODIC ROCK
LICKS
Lick 01

JTC SAYS:

In this 20 Licks Package I’ve tried to make licks that are powerful, melodic, full of
emotion and taste, combined with multiple techniques and different styles of playing.
The most important thing for me is to use the technique as a means to play and
express what’s in my mind and soul. It’s way better to produce music with your mind
and ears as a guide, than with only your eyes. Your playing, in general, won’t be
so musical if it’s only based on meaningless technique marathons. We all have to
remember that music comes first!
The package includes three backing tracks. The first one covers licks 1-10, the
second one covers licks 11-20 (different chord progression) and the third track is the
full version.
Lick 1 -
The first progression presents a challenge... although we’re basically in D major,
the Bb chord necessitates a move to D minor (and the Dsus2#5 creates a transition
between the two). Most of the lick is based on the D Ionian mode (D E F G A Bb C)
and D minor pentatonic (D F G A C). It has that major/minor vibe to it due to the use
of the major 3rd (F#) and minor 3rd (F) of D. Pay attention to eliminate any string
noise at the tricky hybrid picking run in measure 3.
