This lick features a repeating riff with a chromatically descending lead note. I'm barring three strings but you can do it any way you like. Also, picking is dealers choice here. Alternate/Econ, depending on what works for you. Just make sure to pick each note.
You dont have to use the finger bar approach. You may need to do the finger roll as I'm doing in the video, but you are welcome to play this in any way that feels comfortable. It's a fairly complex lick as far as quick licks goes, but it's a very handy lick to be sure. Works in all kinds of contexts and works as a finger workout as well. smile.gif

Well done!! Very clean take and then some spiff improv!! This requires a 3 string traverse which can get tricky. The picking and hand synch is intentionally complex so as to require a bit of focus and a good bit of technique. Good news is that your technique is spot on!!! All of your work in Quick Licks and GMC in general is paying off! I hope you too can see the improvements. Nice!!
You just......
LEVELED UP!!!

There he is!!! Nice!! This one is a bit of a finger twister and you tear it up like crazy!! This one has a 3 string traverse in addition to having some chromatic descending bit on a single string. In this case, the high E. This one requires a good deal of finger articulation and you had plenty!!!!! This is a great lick for working on several aspects of technique at the same time. You didn't even break a sweat!!
SCORE!! You just...
LEVELED UP!!!
