Ascending Arpeggio Slide (Arpeggio Lick)


INTRO:

This lick is an Arpeggio style lick that is picked more than “Swept”. It’s a “Slide” lick which means you will slide up the neck while keeping contact with the fret board. Take it note by note.. Don't worry about playing this fast at first. Just worry about playing it note for note in a smooth/precise fashion. The speed will come as you practice the lick. You don’t get ANY points for how fast you play it.



Here is the tablature. As always, start SLOW, don't worry about playing this fast. Just focus on playing it CLEAN Speed is a byproduct of precision. Just like previous quick licks, this lick works as a warmup, practice and solo lick. Don't over stress on getting it just right, or fast enough. This is just about learning the lick. Once you have it you can start it anywhere on the neck to play it in any key.

BACKGROUND / COMMENTS
This lick is not connected to a backing track. You can play it with a backing track if you like. Anything based in the key of A should work just fine. For our purposes here, just playing with a metronome or click track is more than fine smile.gif


BTW:
The slide is not easy at first so give yourself a moment to get used to it. Being able to slide will open up a new range of licks for your hand to be able to play.


WARM UP LICK:
Here are the first few notes of the lick to get you started. The tricky bit is using the third finger to bar over two strings.

NICE!!!! This is very well played. Take a look folks. This is some very nice technique indeed. Notice how he slightly modded the base lick to make it work a bit better for him. I all for folks making these their own. Also, notice how little string noise happens. This is the muting of the right hand and the muting of the left hand working together in concert. Also notice the smoothness of play. I don't even need the metronome to know that it's spot on. BEN has a very good grasp of Arps and it's on display here. Not drops, not rushing or lagging, just evenly and smoothly played, note by note.. This is exactly what I"m looking for folks, if you can pull this off, you can badge up every time!!!!! I'm going to look at his other submissions. Wow. They were all AWESOME. Not only did he drill it and kill it, he know joins the ranks of only 3 folks to hold the STAR OF HONOUR

For completing every sing one of the Quick Licks Challenges. Well done Ben, you and your killer Ibby just ..

LEVELED UP!!!!!!

I'm working on it Todd. None of these feel natural to me which is a good thing as it makes me move away from my muscular habits. smile.gif This also means that, given the little amount of time I can dedicate to them, they do take longer.

I'd like to get them all down smoothly by the new year if not then whenever but I do want to get them all done.

Cheers buddy.

I'd say not to try to do all of them before you submit a video to be honest. If you can just get one, you can get some feedback, learn a bit of something, badge up and move on. So I'd say try to just take them one at a time if possible. smile.gif

Yeah, that's what I was going to do, number 6 next, then back to 2, and so on one at a time, I don't want to fall behind with them.

My fingers are slowly getting the hang of this, ascending is easier than descending, I think it's the reverse roll that is my sticking point

The reverse roll was added just to force folks to get used to doing a reverse roll smile.gif Don't worry about doing it fast, as long as you can do it at all you can badge up!

Umm. Dude. YOU ARE THERE!!!! We could just grade this one if you like. I might put just a pinch more gain on to make the slide a bit easier on ya, but yeah, I'd say it's ready to go smile.gif This is more than plenty. Once you get to this point, I"d say move on to the next one!!

Thanks Todd.

I'll record again, I had the vol pot down to about 4 for that one because I was short on time and my Ben Higgins/Phil Collen patch was in the Helix already wink.gif

Phil I love how you wear the appropriate T-shirt for your videos, and also I really liked the tone you had in your Phil Collen preset in the Rec.

I'm going to be trying that lesson next.
