Most Memorable Guitar Licks of Rock Songszxm A guitar lick is a short phrase of few notes. It can be seen in both riffs and solos. If some licks or one lick is played to create main theme of the song then it is called a riff.
If a series of licks being played then it becomes a solo.
So, in short, a lick is a small part of whole guitar line.
I have included some of those memorable guitar licks, usually because of these guitar licks the solos, riffs or the whole song became even better.
Counting lick is quite hard, but I will describe each of them to avoid mistakes. And I have added one kind of lick from every song.
