THERE IS NO SPEED REQUIREMENT IN QUICK LICKS. PLAY THIS AT ANY SPEED YOU LIKE.
This lick features an "Asymmetrical Pick Strike Pattern" as well as a "Pedal Point". We have discussed pedal point technique in previous licks. Simply put, we return to a given note ( in this case the E on the 12th fret, high string). The asymmetrical strike pattern is created by striking the fretted note once, and the open string twice. Getting used to this type of picking pattern can take a bit of practice but it's worth doing. It opens up a new avenue of your playing.



*NOTE: Keep it smooth and under control. If you find you are losing control, slow down just a pinch. If you want to add one take where you are pushing the edge for speed and get a bit wonky, that's perfectly fine.

BACKGROUND / COMMENTS: Keep a solid palm mute and this sounds a bit "RICK GRAHAM" who is famous for his muted legato.

Hit me up with any questions!
