Let's combine the Neoclassical Pedal Pointe technique with a blues lick. This will require you to do a "finger roll" in order to to play notes on the same fret on two different strings. It's a very unique way to run a blues scale lick that I"ve not heard anyone else do. Combining things like neoclassical techniques and traditional blues licks, is a good way to help you define your own "sound". The more that is unique about your sound the better! Give it a whirl smile.gif

Tricky eh? smile.gif This one sounds really simple until you go to play it. Its more tricky than i it first seems. Doing a pedal point with a blues scale is something I've not heard done much which is great as it is something that sound somewhat new. You've got a good handle on it! The last few notes could use a polish but it's the first descending bit with the chromatic descending pattern that I'm most concerned about and you got it down. Try using this ins a solo!!
BTW well done on that guitar! She looks great and sounds great. It came together really well. Congrats!
