Lick of the Week Lesson 3
This is another Fusion type lick that makes use of economy picking for a smooth sound. It uses the A Dorian scale starting with an upward sweep from the 4th string to the 6th string. The same pattern repeats moving up in fourths each time.
In the second bar, after the initial upward sweep from the 2nd to the 4th string, two slides are played instead. The lick finishes on the 12th fret of the 1st string (5th above A) for a strong resolution.
If you’re struggling to get this lick down then leave a question below and we’ll get back to you. If you manage to nail this lick then consider leaving a video response for us on YouTube. Also be sure to check out more of Tom’s playing on his YouTube channel
