Hey @joergkutter, I know of an AMAZING RESOURCE that has EVERY LICK EVER PLAYED… it’s called your record collection.
Sorry, I get paid a commission by the International Ornery Music Teachers Association every time I tell someone to transcribe.
But seriously, in my experience reading a lick from a library or someone else’s chart is hundreds of times less useful than figuring it out yourself. When you find them yourself, you:
- Train your ear (yay)
- Make a personal connection to the lick
- Learn it in context, thus are able to use it more intelligently
Like, if I show you this awesome Jaco lick:
It’s fun to read, but I don’t think you’ll get as much out of it as I did, because I learned it by ear (from a bit in his instructional video where he’s jamming with Jerry Jemmott, but he plays it other places too), so I got it in my ear really well, felt the context he used it in.
And I was so excited I learned it by ear that I started sticking it in my solos and stuff in the following weeks so that I absorbed it into my musical DNA. It’s harder to do that with stuff you’re just reading, in my experience.
