Guitar Lick of The Day:
Double Stop Bending

Here is a fairly simple way of producing awesome heavy metal blues à la Kirk Hammett: bend your double stops. The lick is played in E minor pentatonic (for the mostpart). Double stops are just two notes played simultaneously - if you add some bending/vibrato and some wah-wah, this becomes a killer technique.
