This lick is a great 'head turner' at the guitar store, and is easier to learn and play than it sounds. It comprises of straight sixteenth notes, all on one string. The lesson will break this lick down into bite-sized pieces, played nice and slow. Once you can play this lick cleanly at the slow speed, use the Riff Axelerator interface to have it build you up toward the full speed.
