THERE IS NO SPEED REQUIREMENT IN QUICK LICKS. PLAY THIS AT ANY SPEED YOU LIKE.

LET"S SHRED!!!!!! In this Quick Licks we Traverse 4 Strings while alternate picking. This is a "Shred Lick" you can work up some serious speed!!! You don't have to play it fast for your vid, just keep it as part of your warm up/practice routine and speed will happen with practice. Feel free to try the Ben Higgins approach and do the lick in bursts, e.g. first 3 notes, then first 4, etc. as a fast run and keep adding to it. Don't give up on working with a metronome though as being able to play "in time" is critical to being a good musician and folks that can play to a beat/click/drum, are people who can actually play.


*NOTE: As always, try 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.
