Chromatic guitar licks

There aren’t many (any?) good resources online for non-tonal guitar music.  Here are a couple licks with Tab.  They’re fun to play and certainly useful to train fingers that are stuck in guitar-isitic patterns.

Here’s a chromatic lick involving all 12 pitch classes.

Here’s one that uses the principle of melodic expansion ( Stockhausen’s “Spreizen der Intervalle”). Note how each group of five notes expands the tessitura of the first.

This one sounds best with a clean tone, played slowly. Diads over a pedal.  Always expressive.
