Thread Name: All-time favourite guitar lick
Subject: RE: All-time favourite guitar lick
Not exactly a lick, but uh...................

I have always been kinda' gassed when I listen to Arlo pick along while he talks. Listen carefully. Its effortless and has small changes in whatyever it is as he goes along. Now, most of us pick and sing, it goes together......But just talking away, rambling on, while you seemingly play on autopilot is a particular talent. Obviously Arlo has had a lot of practice at it with Alice, but there are so many others where he does this. His playing is very underrated.

I did get a good lick in on an old Yamaha one day. Tasted like ginger and soy sorta'.
