Let's do a very simple but very cool NeoClassical Inspired lick that you can use in a solo or just to work on your precision/speed. I'm going to DOUBLE PICK every note in this lick except for the very last note which you can single strike and use vibrato. This lick works well as a solo lick but also helps you to work on your string traverse while multi picking.

Many folks find that traversing while multi picking can be a bit tricky, so this lick should help out on that front. It's not crazy complex. Just a simple shape. Also, I'm playing the first demo "at speed" to show you what it will sound like once you play it quite a bit. I DO NOT expect you to play it this fast for your take. You can play at any speed that is comfortable.

*Have a look at the video



*NOTE: Keep it smooth and under control. If you find you are losing control, slow down just a pinch.

Nice!!! I can see you getting better with each and every one of these. Your technique continues to get more and more refined, your precision continues to improve as well. You have been making great progress on these and it looks like you are going to be crowned as the new TOP DAWG of Quick Licks, you are only a few steps away! I"ve never seen anyone climb up this fast. In your next batch you will over take the top spot! Keep it up!!! It's great to see you making such great gains!!!! You killed this and ...

Double Picking like a pro!!! This one requires hand synch, a solid palm mute, killer precision and very advanced picking. You have no problem at all with any of it. It's impressive. I love seeing you tear through these. Keep going! As for this one, you just..
