I've always wanted to get into these kind of licks but I've never really had the idea of what they're used for etc, i can find tabs but I want to understand what's the use of it or what makes them etc... kind of a generic question but i would like to get my mind cleared on this.

Personally, I use them mainly for arpeggios.

I find it a lot more articulate than sweeping cause you can just pick every note and get the 'machine gun' feel.

Cool video Cosmin! We have very musical lessons here at GMC based on this technique. The possibilities are limitless for this technique, as happens with music in general. You can use it for fresh melodies and also for getting very unique shred passages.

wow thanks cosmin for the video! that was a great explanation which makes a lot of sence haha. and i totally got what you mean by the hands rather than it just being dull and going up and down the notes can have more of a wave that's not as dull! thanks man. and yeah i got the whole string skipping thing from andy james cause his licks are way crazy but awesome. i just don't get them tongue.gif

This is something I came up with based on the whole string skipping thing. it's not all string skipping but parts are.
would like to hear your opinions :

Hey man! Just took a listen - I think you understood the idea quite well wink.gif Incorporate the technique into a wider context and diversify the phrasing with other techniques as well, giving everything a solid direction. Nice!! Keep experimenting mate - I am sure you can come up with memorable stuff!
