Awesome Slide-Legato Lick #1

This is an awesome, visually impressive and cool sounding, lick which relies on solid slide and legato techniques.

Legato phrases, as you should know, rely on fretting hand techniques such as slide, hammer-ons and pull-offs. In this lick we are using a slide technique in-between picking a note’s 5th on the adjacent string. Sound complicated, right? It also looks kickass.

Performance directions available in the video below.

Here’s the warm-up tab, start practising at around 80bpm, with 100bpm as your target.

Here is the entire lick tab. Again, start slow and work up to 100bpm. Faster is obviously cooler, but only if you’re playing cleanly and clearly.
