Thread Name: All-time favourite guitar lick
Subject: RE: All-time favourite guitar lick
DAMMIT, WELL MAYBE I THINK HE DOES MURRAY!!!

So, to break it down for those less astute:

--One Perfect Moment (The Bad Examples)
The funky little sliding Dm7 shapes that go up and down

--Rusty Cage (SoundGarden)
The killer sycopated hammer-on ostinato played throughout the song, then the slow burn rubato bends near the end

--Summer Rain (David Allison)
Just the whole tune is a dream come true, with all those little magic pull-offs

--King of Morning, Queen of Day (Horslips)
The amazing solos and intros with the hammer ons and the delicious little slides that give you shivers

--Kuiama (ELectric Light Orchestra)
The sycopated hammer-ons that lead into the boingy country style dropped D drone

--10538 Overture (Electric Light Orchestra)
That mmm mmm good lead in arpeggios, then the crazy cello lines that rule on the guitar bass

--Leopard Skin Pillbox Hat (Bob Dylan)
Those cool little blues riffs

--Most Likely You Go Your Way And I'll Go Mine (Bob Dylan)
Just that crazy bouncing rhythms is a riot to play

--Friends (Led Zeppelin)
Just a whole bunch of fun with all the sliding pinky work while the chords are strumming...wow

--Arms Wide Open (Creed)
Just hearing that opening arpeggio tells you something good is going to come

--Shakermaker (Oasis)
The crazy sliding 12 bar blues lick with those added top notes...makes you wanna shake

--Live Forever (Oasis)
The solo...well what can I say? One of the greatest moments in rock. Right up there with the licks from Stairway To Heaven.

--Desert Mountain Showdown (Hootie & The Blowfish)
Then funky bass boom chick and sneaky bass runs are so much fun

--Music For A Found Harmonium (Patrick Street)
Just the whole bleeding thing!


You can make an appointment at Paltalk with me and I can and will provide an demonstration of each. Thank you.

BTW DAVID ALLISON RULES! AND I DON'T GIVE A RATS ASS WHO THINKS HE'S GOOD OR NOT! THIS GUITAR PLAYER LIKES HIM.
