In this Quick Lick we put a lot of things together.Tapping/Hammer ons/Pull Offs, working with an open string and playing 5 notes per string. This technique allows you to sound like you are playing crazy fast due to the sheer number of notes, while you are really playing at a comfortable speed. If you have never tried a lick like this, it's time to expand your lick library

Nice!! You do have a pinch of trouble with the shift but that's the hardest part of the entire deal imho. The trick is to make the shift while you are doing the tap with the left hand. That way the shift gets burried under the right hand tap note. You will have plenty of chances to work on this as there are wads of tap/shift licks as part of the program smile.gif Tap shifting is yet another very handy trick to have in your bag. Feel free to post again if you want to try to smooth that part out but I'm impressed that you are playing a five note per string tapping sequence so I"m gonna say SPIFF!!!! and you just..
LEVELED UP!!!!

NICE!!! That's it exactly. It's tricky to hide that shift beneath the tap but it's the key to this type of lick. That way it sounds like a very smooth series of notes. It's natrual to hiccup on that part at first. I did the same when I wrote it. I finally smoothed it out and then had a real bear of a time playing it slow actually. It was easier for me to play fast. Once I figured it out slow, the importance of hiding that shift under the tap really stood out. This one is MUCH smoother, well done!!

This is so far out of my skill set that when I first tried it, I felt like I didn't even know how to play the guitar. Even though I fall squarely in Van Halen era of guitar learners, I've never been a tapper. But, I do know how to practice and that systematic, focused practice yields results.

The way I went about this quicklick was to work on it for around 10 minutes at the beginning of my regular practice and then for another 10 mins in the middle or at the end of the practice session and then randomly at some other point during the day (for maybe just 2 or 3 minutes). I did this for 3 days. So approx 20 + minutes a day for three days in a row.
My focus was on the left hand shift in back of a 'tap' and also, since I don't tap, I had to find the position where my right hand was comfortable and could help to mute the open strings.

It's definitely not ready for prime time yet. The pull-off to the open string is the weakest part.
