slides and pull-offs

This slightly more ad­vanced idea in­cludes a handy slide and pull- off com­bi­na­tion. If prac­tised well, this idea can re­sult in smooth and fast legato runs, so take your time ex­plor­ing it. Also, no­tice how you can use econ­omy pick­ing to great ef­fect when go­ing from the 8th fret of the first string to the 12th fret of the sec­ond string. The sec­ond half of the lick gets a lit­tle bluesy, adding the F nat­u­ral for some chro­matic blues colour. From there it continues up D ma­jor pen­ta­tonic scale (D E F# A B), end­ing on the 3rd (F#) on the 14th fret, first string. Again, since this lick is so legato based, keep each note as even as pos­si­ble and re­sist the temp­ta­tion to just fire out the easy parts at full speed, leav­ing the harder sec­tions sound­ing in­con­sis­tent and weak.
