In this section you will learn five of Ruben Wan’s favorite licks. For each lick Ruben will show you how to play it slowly and run you through the music theory behind it.
Here’s the licks you will learn:
Lick 1: I – IV – ii V – I
Lick 2: Dorian pentatonic double stop
Lick 3: Ending to a major progression
Lick 4: Min9 groove
Lick 5: Altered scale
As with any lick you learn, make sure to make them your own by adding your own flare. Take them through different keys and positions. The first step is to learn it but the second step is the most important: make music out of them.
Let’s get started with the first lick.
