Notes: Here are 5 licks that you can use for a G-D-G turnaround. The first 4 are originals of mine. The first employs a chordal approach. The second substitutes a Bb chord for the D, to provide a kind of bluesy effect that is unexpected and punchy. The third is one of my default licks, which I have used in a variety of tunes. The fourth I have also used in many tunes, including "Are You Missing Me," which you can hear on my BHO page, at I have to tell you that for years I struggled with tabbing the correct timing on this one, and the solution came to me while I was sleeping -- I kid you not. The last one is a wonderful Bill Emerson lick. It is constructed beautifully, and I feel a sense of peace and oneness with the universe when I hear it. Okay, perhaps that's overstating it somewhat. But it is a great lick, which is anchored in the repetitive use of the C note, the flatted 7th, on the second string, with the melody notes doing a lovely walk up the first string.
