"Lick My Lick!" Free Lessons on youtube :)

Hey guys, as I never come here (I only surf through the "General Music Discussion" Forum) I'll introduce myself.

My name is Benjamin Lechuga, from Chile. Ibanez and ENGL Amps endorser, chosen by Steve Vai as the winner of the Steve Vai scholarship. (That's why I'm living in London now)

I've just started this idea called "Lick My Lick!"
I'll be uploading some licks to youtube, and teach them, with tabs and backing tracks, all for free to share with everyone!

This is the first video:



The tabs and backing tracks are available in my website :::...BENJAMIN LECHUGA...::: Official Website in the "LML" section!

I hope this is useful to everyone! More videos are yet to come! So if you liked this one you can suscribe to my Youtube Channel!

Cheers!

If I could offer one suggestion / criticism: do you have a way to make the backing track longer? As it is, it kinda limits the playing to a single "short" lick, like a mini-bridge... If it repeated around two or three times, it could be more "useful", also because we could have a bit more time to get into it and develop and idea mid-way, which is always interesting to do (and a challenge for many - me included).
Aside that, the lesson was awesome, you explained it really clearly and the example is interesting and very musical. I'll be looking forward to more Thanks a lot for your efforts!

Thanks guys for the feedback! I'm working on a new lick already!

About the length of the backing track. Yeah it's kind of short for improvising but the point of the video is learning the lick! You can find lots of dorian backing tracks in youtube anyway, so I thought it was kind of a useless effort to do something that is already done. Maybe I can someday do a CD full of backing tracks and sell it hahaha who knows?

I understand what you are saying, and I don't disagree either.
At any rate, I (and I'm sure a lot of others) appreciate your efforts in providing this content.

Cool
It's cool to help other people, and to be honest, the one that learns the most is me! I get to write new ideas, record them, analise them, transcribe them and that is veeeery useful!

I also learnt how to animate text on a video because of this hahaha I created the logo and everything! It was very fun and useful!

Good job, dude!

One of the better instructionals I've seen out there.

Honestly, as someone who knows little to nothing about scales/modes/etc (by name/paper/etc)...your explanation is doing a LOT more than just teaching your lick....you're teaching some fundamental stuff that people like myself that just don't know can look at and learn (like when you show G Maj Pentatonic, etc).

Thanks a lot man!
The idea of Lick My Lick is always to involve musical ideas into your playing. In this videos I will never teach a certain technique (tapping, or sweep for example) if it's not in a musical environment. There's plenty of videos out there on how to tap, how to sweep, but the most difficult things is to do this things with good taste (od course that's subjective) but my aim is to
help others to develop musical ideas rather than nonsense shred.

Cheers!
