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.

Muting on this one was hard for me.
I also had to think about my accuracy with the stretch of my pinky (4th) finger for the high note. Easy to undershoot if I wasn't focused.
Once again I've noticed that since doing these Todd hammer-on licks, my left hand is not getting fatigued anymore. Practice works!
I made a little classical style progression with the lick. Gm to Cm back to Gm to Dm to Gm. I lower the top note of the Cm arpeggio one fret each time. The Dm is a different shape.

Now that was just AWESOME!! I like how it sounds further up like you played in the vid. I'm going to have to make a quick licks with that mod! It sounds very cool. I like your musicality quite a bit and the way you change the pinky note when you are playing further up is very cool. It started life as a drill and ended up as an etude! Thanks much for this killer take. Needless to say you just.
You just....
LEVELED UP!!!
