That's a killer lick, I like it! There are some sync issues that must be fixed yet but you are very close.

Aye, indeed mate smile.gif Great lick, but keep working on it at a slower pace in order to get your hands in perfect synch smile.gif

This disappears with a diary technique routine. This is not an easy lick and it seems that we need some time to assimilate difficult licks which uses fingering or pick movements that we don't use very much (at least at fast tempo). It's like doing an sport, to be able to go from nothing to your limit you need a constant training.
Technique exercises like the ones from the ITC can help: LINK

You surely experimented this in your beginnings as a guitar player. You pick up the guitar and you couldn't play correctly the things that you could play after some time of practice the previous day. This could happen with pinch harmonics, or just with chord changes. With the pass of time, this became easier and you can do at once.

That's very true Gabriel, I guess We just tend to forget how hard certain things used to be and how naturally they come now, I remember struggling to get a pinch harmonic lol now it just comes naturally and sometimes a little too often hehe we only need one Zakk Wylde in the world... jk!

yeah, Pinch Harmonics are the best example. I remember those ays when doing a pinch harmonics right was a very random possibility... nowadays I can do it whenever I decide it... but even.. it can fail. tongue.gif

Ciao Marco - Gabriel is right, so follow his suggestion and practice until this becomes a habit. Usually - me included - we have the tendency to rush into incorporating some things in our playing before we are actually able to use them at our own free will. It is a matter of self control and dedicating enough time to practicing a certain piece or technique until it becomes a natural element.

I am sure that there are some licks that you can play at any given time - right? smile.gif Think a bit and ask yourself why wink.gif How did you manage to get them at THAT level? Try it with this one too!
