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 fo 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!!!!!!
