The History of Rock
Before we dig into these free Sophie Lloyd
Guitarists such as Jimi Hendrix, Eric Clapton, and Jimmy Page became legends for their innovative playing styles and techniques. In the 1980s, metal and hard rock evolved into alternative and grunge, with influential guitarists like Kurt Cobain, Tom Morello, and Eddie Vedder leading the way. Rock guitar continues to evolve to this day, with new artists and genres emerging all the time – one of which is TrueFire Educator, Sophie Lloyd!
In Sophie Lloyd’s Techniques edition of her Bulletproof Rock
”In this Licks edition, I’ll show you how to play 20 of my favorite licks for soloing and improvisation. We’ll work on licks using tapping, 3 note-per-string runs, sweeps, diminished scale permutations, repetitive cycles, and many other “bulletproof” expressive techniques.”
Sophie will explain and demonstrate all of the key concepts and approaches as you play your way through each of the 20 licks. You’ll get standard notation and tabs for all of the soloing and rhythm performance studies. To see Sophie‘s FULL Course, Bulletproof Rock Guitar: Licks Edition, click here!
Guitar Lesson #1: Slash Moves in B Minor – Lick 8
This lick is in the key of B minor and it is just using the first position of the minor pentatonic, so nice and easy there. We’re starting off by doing a little cyclic bend pattern and then we’re just running down that first position.
Guitar Lesson #2: Gilbert’s Gargoyle Lick – Lick 9
This next lick is an E flat major and it is inspired by the song Gargoyle by Paul Gilbert, who is one of Sophie’s favorite guitarists. It is this really cool string skipping lick, which kind of follows the chords all the way down.
Guitar Lesson #3: B Minor Pull-Off Lick – Lick 14
This next lick is in the first position of the B minor pentatonic scale and we are just staying in that position for all of it. It’s a really kind of cool cyclic pull off lick.
Guitar Lesson #4: E Minor Climb in 5ths
This next lick is in E minor, and we’re basically going to be doing a kind of climb up the fretboard in fifths and then we’re going to be doing a cool stretch pattern.
Practicing licks regularly is essential for
Additionally, regularly incorporating licks into their practice routine helps embed them into the student’s muscle memory, making it easier to recall and apply them in their playing. Furthermore, licks serve as building blocks for creating solos, riffs, and melodies, providing students with a wider range of creative options in their playing.
