180 Experience

Quick Licks

If there’s anyone who has experience playing big licks to end songs or turn heads in a stadium, it’s Rich Redmond. Rich is going to teach us 17 ideas he uses regularly to get the best bang for the buck. These licks can serve as fills as well and are great exercises to strengthen your understanding of note and fill placement, subdivision and independence or co-ordination. Many of these licks sound down right mean and do an excellent job of putting an exclamation mark over your playing. Make sure to DOWNLOAD the PDF so you can see all 17 licks written out. Get after it!
