Let's do a looping lick that can help when working on precision precision picking. You can pick this using Econ or Alternate picking or any combo of both. The important thing is to play is in a precise manner. This is a "shred" lick but can be played slow. Try to play it in a loop to work on your stamina. Try a couple of loops, or more if possible Never play to the point of pain!! This is a pattern that you can work some serious speed with, given a bit of practice! Keep a good palm mute to keep string noise at bay and to keep each note distinct. It's the same shape on two strings with a back and forth "paul gilbert" ish bit in it. Give it a go!!

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

BACKGROUND / COMMENTS: This lick works slow or fast so don't feel like you have to shred it up. The vid is just to show you what it can sound like with practice smile.gif Try the Ben Higgins Burst approach and play one loop briskly, or even part of a loop to see what it will feel like to play it fast.
