THERE IS NO SPEED REQUIREMENT IN QUICK LICKS. PLAY THIS AT ANY SPEED YOU LIKE.
This lick features an "Asymmetrical Pick Strike Pattern" as well as a "Pedal Point". We have discussed pedal point technique in previous licks. Simply put, we return to a given note ( in this case the E on the 12th fret, high string). The asymmetrical strike pattern is created by striking the fretted note once, and the open string twice. Getting used to this type of picking pattern can take a bit of practice but it's worth doing. It opens up a new avenue of your playing.



*NOTE: Keep it smooth and under control. If you find you are losing control, slow down just a pinch. If you want to add one take where you are pushing the edge for speed and get a bit wonky, that's perfectly fine.

BACKGROUND / COMMENTS: Keep a solid palm mute and this sounds a bit "RICK GRAHAM" who is famous for his muted legato.

Hit me up with any questions!

You got it!!! Your second pass was spot on. Once you speed up I notice that your hand synch starts to drift a bit again. At higher speeds, your hand synch is just a pinch lose. It needs to betighter than that for REC in order to get a good result/points. Try to add a middle speedbetween the slow version and the shred version to work up to your fast speed. You
can clearly shred but your synch seems to drift in direct relation to how fast you are playing. The good news is that both quick licks and especially bootcamp can fix this.
Bootcamp is graded more strictly than quick licks and has much more complex bitsthat will help your hand synch at speed. Try to do a few Bootcamp Missions when you can. Add this lick to your practice routine and use both the Ben (few notes fast at at time) and the standardmetronome, all notes at one speed slowly increased. To help with synch. But you clearly havethis lick in hand so you just....
LEVELED UP!!!!!

You remain our TOP DAWG in Quick licks!!!

NAILED IT!!! Per usual, your execution is as good as anyone could ever expect. This lick has an odd tempo vibe to it which throws some folks off, not you!!! Very well played. Great pick articulation and your timing is spot on. Couldn't ask for a better example of this lick.
