    Ladder Licks Explained…

    Andrew Wasson of Creative Guitar Studio explains “ladder licks” as an effect of going outside the melodic & harmonic structure of a key that a chord progression is from.

    Its like the combination of chormatic passing tones and patterns, but the idea is that these ladder licks must be played with authority or else you will wind up sounding like a goof. As well, a repeating pattern of these off-notes implies to the listeners ear, that yes… this is how it’s supposed to sound.

    Happy Friday everyone!
