I came across a really, really cool way to generate original licks using SightReader!
First of all, choose an interesting scale and key. Choose the timing subdivisions and interval jumps you'd like to have in your lick.
Then just generate and play until you come across a bar or 2 bars worth of a phrase that tickles your ears.
Then learn it.
1) you get a really original lick
2) This will advance your sight-reading as you need to work out the lick first from just music!
