This is a SINGLE STRING lick based on the E Minor Scale. It can be played on every string so give that a try as well. It just becomes a Minor Scale for whatever string you play it on. E.G. G Minor, B Minor.

I'm doing a "Strike Once Hammer Many" approach here. So keep a good palm mute to dampen string noise and then strike the open string and hammer on the fretted notes. It's a very simple idea that can sound very cool in execution. The muting makes it sound almost like each note is a strike. So it sounds like a four note per string scale. You could play this without using the open string, it would just be much more difficult.

This is a great lick to build some speed on!!

NICE!!! Well played. You took it one step further and didn't use a pick at all showing how much progress your left hand is making. This is not an easy lick to play with just one hand if one has not put time in the wood shed. You clearly have put time in the woodshed so it's no problem at all! Score. I like the Tapping bit at the end as well.

In other words you just...
LEVELED UP!!!!
