In this Quick Lick, we are going to use a PENTATONIC SLIDE technique. You can slide with any finger that feels comfortable on this one. We are using a Pentatonic shape and just connecting the dots to create a blues type lick that has a bit more complexity than your average blues licks. Don't forget your vibrato and keep a light mute so that you don't get extra string noise!!!

BACKGROUND / COMMENTS: This is a fun lick once you get in to it. It works anywhere on the neck as well. Start slow

Hit me up with any questions!

Nailed it!! There was a little warble in the first pass but nothing that would wreck it. The tricky bit here is that string skip"ish" thing where you gotta move up a string before going back down and you got it!!! Kudos on transposing it to another place on the neck!!! This is a great lick for soloing, try it out with a backing and share if you get a chanceYou got this one!!! And...
LEVELED UP!!!!

You are playing the lick as a straight run rather than doing the tricky skip'ish" bit that is buried near the end but that's not enough to throw me off here. I like how smooth you are running the lick and it works great the way you are doing it. The slide is nice and slick and and you single finger bend/vibrato is spiffness!!! You just...
LEVELED UP!!!!

Thanks Todd,

I need to re-examine " tricky skip'ish" bit that is buried near the end ", I only looked at it last night for the first time, I'll post another vid with the correct version. I thought it was the same though, I need to observe more deeply wink.gif


UPDATE:

Here it is again but for the life of me I can't see how I am playing it different to the TAB in the GP file, this is the same as the last video I think. I must have a mental block somewhere, can you point my error out, please Todd?

In the first vid, it looked like your going 12th/14th fret on the D string, instead of 12th Gstring 14th Dstring after the slide up. The second vid looks spot on though. Then again, maybe I'm just hearing it wrong in the first vid. After the 5th note, (after the slide) the standard thing would be to just play the next notes in the scale, instead, I have you do a back and forth type thing instead of just ascending. It's only one note really. Does this make sense?
It's a very small difference. Not enough to keep you from badging up. It's really just a slidey bluesy thing. Which works played either way.

Thanks Todd,

I'm glad the second one is correct, makes me feel more like I earned the badge properly wink.gif I'll examine the vids more closely, I've watched the first one many times and to me it looks the same and sounds the same but when I get home on Sunday evening I'm going to play the correct notes over the first video to see if I can hear it.

Cheers buddy.

It could be my ears/eyes. It just sounds like you are going 12/14th fret up on one string instead of doing the up one string, back down one string from 12th to 14th. it's really a very small difference. For the purpose of quick licks, your vid is more than enough for a badge up. The second one is perfect!

I think the difference is a missing note in Phil's take. I'm not sure, but at quick glance I don't hear the B (14th fret) twice. But I'm not sure. Could be my tired ears and eyes.

Arh, yes, agreed, E on D string instead of B on A string, I think? Small "mistake", nothing too important I would say. We had a hard time spotting it!
