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.
