This is a great thread from 2 years ago. Lots of intros, endings, riffs and fills for a newbie to work on.

I've been playing along with songs on CD by grabbing notes out of the chords, it sounds OK but I'd like to add some classic riffs to my "tool-box".

Got any more ?

Thanks for bringing this one back to life folks. Aa a new (about 2 months) player I have really enjoyed this thread as a way of learning some licks to go along with the chords. Please keep these little tidbits coming along.

Also, thanks to everyone who recommended the Joe Wright Techniques book. Those exercises were just what I needed to get going..

Thanks - Phil

I'm bumping this again since I rediscovered it in a search and it's useful.

Most of these standbys are the for country stuff.

Anyone have any favorite standby rock/blues licks as well?

When you try the Mooney lick above, use the Bflat lower on the 5 string LKV instead of the A pedal for a different hot lick. I would say this will prabably be one of your best licks once you get it down. Yes, it is still Mooney all the way. Going from fret 3 to fret one is a G lick, and works good going down 2 frets from the open position.
More info from Sonny; moved here
This is like Ebbs lick above except you use your Bflat LKV on it instead of the A pedal.
I tried to explain the Mooney lick to someone and he thought i said to use the LKV in stead of the A pedal. And this is what we ended up with. Quite a good lick! Naturally do it faster as you learn it.

It sounds real good , how about comparing these two good licks. With some feedback from you guys?

Please move this to Sonny Jenkens discussion below. Use it as in the Ebb lick

Wow! Thank you to everyone who has taken the time to post the licks over the years. When this post started I didn't own a guitar, but thanks to the posting popping up again I can sure benefit from it today. It's funny just the other day I thought if only I knew a couple of licks that could get me through. It's comforting to know that's how many of you got going as well. From a new player (or someone trying to play), thanks again!

These are all killer.....thanks, guys!

In addition to Dick Sexton's "Beginner Notes", does anyone else know a good source of these bite-sized, standard licks? Happy to buy a book or DVD, too....doesn't have o be free.

As a guy who's a pro player on other axes, just learning PSG, I get a lot out of these.

Jim, try Greg Cutshaw's site. Some gems there. There are some "bite-sized" licks as well as "full meals".

Thanks to guys like Greg, Dick Sexton, Frank Freniere, Jeff Garden, etc. who give us their time and steel guitar knowledge and at no cost, I might add. Steve

I've been working on my fundamentals and picking apart moves to see why they work, and found this thread. Lots of well-worn licks here, and it's very helpful for someone like me with holes in their knowledge. There was some discussion on here about compiling a "lick library", and I like that idea. Not necessarily to encourage thinking in licks or thoughtless imitation, but as a practical way to demonstrate why these licks sound consonant and using that knowledge of pedal and bar moves to write one's own parts.

For example, a beginner might know that you can work the B and C pedals on the open position to play a fill, but might not know why that works. A tab of a classic lick along with a short explanation could begin to connect those dots for someone.
