Still pretty new to guitar, not sure what some of the terminology means exactly. Could someone help me out? I'm referring to terms like "lick" and "riff" etc...

Sorry for such a noob question
Lick and riff is basically the same, it's a segment of a song. Most of the time its the most distinguishable part of a song when it comes to an instrument or something.

hmm... Technical terms.. I'll see if I can find a guitar dictionary for you, since they'll prolly explain a lot of things better than me.

Try checking these out:


Even if you don't understand a term now, in time, you will as you grow as a player
