LICK2 speedy rep­e­ti­tion

Guitar Techniques - - Lesson: Blues -

More quick-fire rep­e­ti­tious ac­tion here, al­though the ideas are de­rived from seven-note di­a­tonic modes rather than five-note pen­ta­tonic scales. We could see these notes as a com­bi­na­tion of (or al­ter­na­tion be­tween) F# Do­rian (R 2 b3 4 5 6 b7) and F# Mixoly­dian (R 2 3 4 5 6 b7). Look care­fully and you’ll no­tice that there is only one note of dif­fer­ence that de­fines these two modes: the mi­nor or ma­jor 3rd. Clean and ac­cu­rate pull- offs are the or­der of the day here, so make these as snappy and ar­tic­u­late as pos­si­ble; make sure the fin­gers leave the string with­out caus­ing the notes to pull slightly sharp.
