Bonus Guitar Licks - Three Note Creativity Exercise

A special weekend segment of "Lick of the Day' tabbed using a cool site called Tiny Lick. In the video I use three notes only in one position on the B string the notes F#,G# and A. Limiting yourself to a few notes can be a great exercise and will improve your improvisation skills and enhance creativity. That or drive your neighbors crazy. I've tabbed out a few licks from the video. Try creating your own three note improvs. Have fun. For the best example ever of a three note repeating phrase check out John Frusciante's outro solo on "Don't Forget Me" by the Red Hot Chili Peppers. The notes on that are A, G and E on the high E string.
