Mandolin Lick Exchange
Steve Scott

Licks are short musical phrases that a big part of the language musicians use to improvise. If you are in a jam and someone says: “Hey mandolin – take a break!”, having a nice selection of licks at your command can help you create a respectable piece of music – even if you have never played the tune before in your life.

Most mandolinists have their favorite licks. This workshop is for sharing your licks with other mando folks and to learn new licks to add to your repertoire. Bring a lick and be prepared to show how you use in actual practice. And bring a recording device or video camera to keep the licks you want to work on later.

Steve is a member of Quake City Jug Band. He joined SFFMC way back in 1972 or thereabouts and never looked back.
