You have of course noticed that turnaround-like licks are not only played at the end of each verse, but at the end of each line. I call these licks at the end of the first and second line Fill in licks. They are basically the same as turnaround licks, and takes place in the same position in the line: They start from a I-chord at the first beat of the third bar of each line, and end on a I-chord on the first beat of the last bar of each line. The last three bars of the last bar varies, according to which line it is. In the first line we go to a I7 chord, on the second line we stay at the I chord, and as we already know: The last line often ends at a V7 chord.
