Hey guys here are the licks that I was playing during my polyrhythm lesson!

and applying it over 4/4 signature!

Don't forget that those licks are the sequence and you have to repeat it in order to get polyrhythmic sound!

We were also talking about stretching and string skipping so here is another lick

Oh fantastic man thanks a bunch for posting those! smile.gif You wouldnt happen to remember the big stretched out string skipping thing you were showing us towards the end when someone was asking about a Paul Gilbert lick? Tabbed out as maybe an extra bonus lick?

Edit: Oh my bad that lick 7 looks like it may be the one I was thinking about
