In this Quick Licks, we start with an open string and then play an arpeggio. You can pick this any way you like. Whatever works for your picking hand. This one does have a big stretch for the pinky, but it should be a familiar shape by now as we have used it in the past. We are leveraging that shape here. If the shape is new to new, it should be simple enough as it's only about half of a full arpeggio.

Thanks Todd,

That's the first time I've played it since the last take so my brain must have been working on it.

You are prepped for the next one for sure. It's really an extension of this one. 113 is this lick with string traverse to a lower string. It feels tricky at first to make the switch, but I think you can handle no problem!!!

Thats a very real thing! Sometimes it's best to let the brain work on something without playing it for a few days. Your subconcious mind will keep working on the problem, even when you dream. Then you pick up the guitar and bam, it starts happening! I've made use of this technique many times. In this lesson in particular. When I first wrote it, I stumbled over it for two days in a row. Then I didn't play it for a week. Then It came time to record it and BAM it just worked
