Thread Name: All-time favourite guitar lick
Subject: RE: All-time favourite guitar lick
1. Chuck Berry's intro lick to "Johnny B. Goode" - used so much it's now a Rock 'n' Roll cliche...

2. Alvin Lee and Ten Years After live at Woodstock doing "Goin' Home" - blistering moment during Lee's solo where he does some kind of triplet-based phrase repeated over and over and then drops one of the notes in the phrase a half-step during the change to IV and plays those triplets over and over...

3. Same idea during Jimi Hendrix's solo on his version of "Red House" where he hammers those three notes forever at the change to IV.

4. Any of Hendrix's solos on "All Along The Watchtower," but especially the one right after he says "Hey" - with the "underwater Wah-Wah" sound... or his solo right after he "shot her" on "Hey Joe"...

5. The slide work on Allman Brothers' live version of "Statesboro Blues"...
