Whats your best rock solo licks? Playing in a covers band doing lots of rock songs improving solos but getting bored with same old licks... this will help others too I'm sure

Just chuck a tab up...

For example -

e/-------------------------------------------------------------|
B/-------------------------------------------------------------|
G/-----12-14p12----12-14p12----12-14p12----12-14|
D/-14-------------14-------------14--------------14-------|
A/-------------------------------------------------------------|
E/-------------------------------------------------------------|

This one is a little (okay, a lot) stolen from Alvin Lee.


e---11-8-10-8---11-8-10-8----11-8-10-8------|
B------------10-----------10-----------10---|
G-------------------------------------------|
D-------------------------------------------|
A-------------------------------------------|
E-------------------------------------------| 

Hammmer on and pull off as needed.
You're going to need to make up your own out.

Here's one I made myself however I wouldn't be surprised if other people have done it before.

e I--12h15h12h15b17b15b18~---------------------------------------------I
B I------------------------15--12--------------------------------------I

D I----------------------------------------------------12--14b16b14~---I
A I--------------------------------------------------------------------I
E I--------------------------------------------------------------------I


Needless to say, my style is very bend and legato based when I improvise.
I've gotten a lot of LOLs in my time but I choose not to sig them to not look like a pretentious douchebag

Here's a sweet major pentatonic riff I like. It's 32nd notes at 100 BPM. It's more difficult than it looks but it's a really good exercise and doesn't sound too bad.

Quote by Geldin
Junior's usually at least a little terse, but he knows his stuff. I've always read his posts in a grouchy grandfather voice, a grouchy grandfather with a huge stiffy for alternate picking.
Besides that, he's right this time. As usual.
