So today I was watching videos of some of Guitar World's Betcha Can't Play this licks and I got this idea for a thread. A user posts a "Betcha Can't Play This" original to him. When someone can play it, they make a video (or audio file, but video is encouraged) of them playing it and in turn submit a new "Betcha Can't Play This" Lick original the them. Here are the rules.

1. The submissions MUST have text tab in the thread. If you don't know the tab code (I don't) just use Courier New font. Other tab formats (guitar pro/Powertab) may be included as well, but the text must still be there (If for some reason you have trouble I can make the text for you, though I'd rather it if you did). A video of you playing your lick is also welcome.
Also included should be the tempo the lick is to be played at, tuning, and any notes you have about playing it.

2. When you can play a lick that is currently up, make a Video (preferred) or sound clip to prove it. Post a link to the video or sound clip. If the lick author thinks it's good enough (I may step in in their absence if needed), you submit a lick, which I will replace theirs with in the post. You will then be added to the List Of Champions and Authors. There are to be 10 licks at any one time.

Enjoy.

List Of Champions And Authors:

Lick 1. Author-TheShred201-Champion-
Lick 2. Author-TheShred201-Champion-
Lick 3. Author-TheShred201-Champion-
Lick 4. Author-F8iscruel-Champion-
Lick 5. Author-Blood8815-Champion
Lick 6. Author-TheShred201-Champion-
Lick 7. Author--Champion
Lick 8. Author--Champion
Lick 9. Author--Champion
Lick 10. Author--Champion

Not currently accepting more licks. Slots 7-10 will be used if this thread becomes busy later. For now, 6 is enough.I won't be adding video or audio for the first three for a while. I won't be able to record until July.

Enjoy.

Basic Tab Format:

Thanks to F8iscruel and Graveworm for help with the thread creation and ideas.

Also, for those without guitar pro and who don't want to spend money, Tuxguitar opens them and is free, so quit complaining

Playing Notes:
3/4 Time, 120 BPM. All notes of measure 1 are 16th note triplets. Measure 2 is a dotted half. Measure 1 repeats twice. Lick is designed for 10 finger tapping. It should be self-explanatory which finger goes where. The higher note on each string should be tapped. I don't require that this be done with 10 finger tapping, but I strongly encourage it so that people might get better at some new ideas on guitar (playing with all 10 fingers). Guitar pro is attached.

All notes are 16ths at 120 BPM. 4/4 time. Should be alternate picked in its entirety. This one isn't as musically useful, but "Spider licks" are a great work out. Guitar Pro Attatched.

It's in as lick 4.

I have to go. I'll be back in a about 5-6 hours to add the licks. Sorry to leave for so long. Worst case scenario is that I'm gone until next morning to do them. I only need 6 more licks, so once 6 get submitted in the thread, please don't submit anymore. Save them for later.

i think that once the tab goes on the tabs board it should be deleted from the posts to save space, you think?

I'll start recording my lick and try some in this topic when my multi-effects gets here.. since it's just simple I'd rather do that then mic up my amp.. easier to just plug into the computer.

Edit: Actually, now 10 seems like kind of a lot. Anyone think I should lower the number a bit? Maybe 6ish?

yah id say 6 or 7 but keep those slots open just in case this thread gets major traffic. just a safety net in a since
