Let's do an open string lick that works on our Alternate picking. Single string licks are a great way to work up your speed/precision on your alternate picking since they have no string traverse. All the strikes are focused on one string. This lick has a "Thunderstruck" vibe to it so it should sound familiar. It's a good example of moving a single shape on an open string to create a cool lick. Use your pinky if possible as it's good practice to use the weakest finger!

Hit me with any questions! This one should be a bit more straight forward than some of the other recent quick licks. Give it a go! Spend a few minutes and reap the rewards of making yourself a better player! That's the point of all this after all smile.gif

Nailed it!!!! Although I'd like to see you using that pinky!! It would open up other options for other fingers. I understand using the third finger as it's much stronger, which is why the pinky needs practice. Past the 12th fret many players switch to the first three fingers but not all. For lower fret stuff, pinky use is always a good idea. The more practice with the weakest finger the better! Still, listening with my ears and not my eyes, sounds great and I like the improve bit as well!! You just....
LEVELED UP!!!!You remain our TOP DAWG!!!!
