In this Quick Licks we use NO PICKING at all and only our left hand to Hammer On every note. If your finger power is weak, this is the cure. You can play it slow or fast, any speed is ok. Don't be afraid to try even if you cant hear any notes the first time you do it. It does take a pinch of practice but you can do it!!

NICE!!! This requires serious LEFT HAND POWER. It's not possible for everyone to play. So far it's only possible for one person to play and that person is you smile.gif It requires strong strikes without a pick. Without a strong strike, it just makes no note. It sounds just awful. Its enough to be seriously frustrating for many folks. The good news is that if you can play this, you can play just about any of the crazy one handed licks that are headed your way!!!! Well done here.

You just..

LEVELED UP!!!!

Take 1 Sarge,

Very difficult for me, I can do it better without muting with my picking hand but obviously it sounds messy, I need a Jennifer Batten string muting thing laugh.gif It's very slow and I can't seem to get it any quicker, not any time soon anyway wink.gif

You got it! There is a bit of double fretting of maybe more than one string with your pinky but for just being starting on these types of licks you play it quite well. I spend several years working on left hand only drills and after several hundred hours of practice, I could play briskly with precision and had no need of a pick. It was almost a "Party Piece" at first that I would use in live Gigs during a solo where I'd pick up my guitar with my right hand by the body and play the entire solo for a song with one hand and no pick. I saw Yngwie do it on an old video and I just had to be able to pull it off as I thought it just looked amazingly cool. Later I added over hand muting in as some licks need the mute.

Congrats you just..

Thanks buddy,

I heard the double fretting, it was mainly on the unwound and the pinky hitting the thinner string to the one I was trying to hit alone. Even really really slow I couldn't get the angle on the finger tip to get a more perpendicular attack. It took me quite a while to get to even that level in the video.

Cheers

Phil
