Guthrie Govan: "Odd Time Licks: Vol 2 7/8" for 20 Licks series

Guitarist Guthrie Govan has asked to put together another episode for the 20 Licks series, sold through JamTrackCentral. He came up with Odd Time Licks: Vol.2 7/8. Here's why:

My main priority when coming up with these 20 licks was just to go for rhythmic emphasis and to give you ideas of how you can phrase within that time signature rather than throwing any complex harmonic ideas at you. It seemed to me that it was better just to focus on one aspect of the music at a time, so harmonically it's very simple, and rhythmically you're free to explore using some of the ideas in these licks just as guidelines'

The download contains transcriptions of the licks as well as video and audio files.

Guthrie Govan will be on tour with The Aristocrats.
