On the old site I tried to do a “Lick of the Week” type of thing, but I didn’t keep up on it. I’ll try a little harder this time These are some II-V-I licks from before in Powertab format, PDF format, and a MIDI file.
Some of these shapes are from Scott Henderson’s chord book. I gave all of them an “A” root and moved them around to get major, minor, dominant and diminished sounds. Here it is in Powertab format, PDF format, and a MIDI file.
I don’t use a pick as much anymore, but this is an exercise I came up with for sweep picking. Kind of sounds like a Frank Gambale thing… here it is in Powertab format, PDF format, and a MIDI file. And trust me, I could never play it at that tempo.
