In this Quick Lick, we are going to take an open string lick and play it on two strings. Then we are going to do a bit of fret travel/traverse, and move the lick up the neck! PACE IS KEY! Don't rush or lag this. Keep it steady and evenly paced. Also, lightly palm mute the entire thing to reduce string noise. Since we are using two open strings in this one, it's going to be prone to string noise. So keep a light mute the entire time. Also, this is one of our

STRIKE ONCE HAMMER MANY Type licks. So strike the open string and HAMMER ON THE REST OF THE NOTES
Try to use the PINKY!! It's a great chance to work on your PINKY POWER! If you find you can't play this without picking, then go ahead and pick it, If you can't play it with your pinky, play it any way you can play it. It's quick licks after all so don't torture yourself! Try to get it done "Quickly" smile.gif

Nice! Backwards and Forwards!! This is a great lick to work on a lot of things at once. Hand synch, muting, traverse, timing, hammer ons, etc. It combines wads of techniques in to one lick. You have a good handle on all the techniques in question and pull it off quite well. In other words you just..
LEVELED UP!!!!

*You remain the TOP DAWG!! In Quick Licks. You're the only one ever to have this many under his belt. Nice!
