phil hil­borne’s one-minute licK

Guitar Techniques - - INTRO -

SLIDES, VI­BRATO, TOUCH and dy­nam­ics can make a lick sound­ing classy – or not. This lick con­cen­trates on small but ef­fec­tive ‘mini sweeps’ - short pick-sweeps played across two to four strings that are ei­ther per­cus­sive, melodic or both. These three-string sweeps use notes from A Ma­jor (A-C#-E) - with a lit­tle palm mut­ing adding note sep­a­ra­tion and per­cus­sive­ness. The sweeps all fall on off-beats, so you might need to take ex­tra care with this as­pect. As usual, ex­per­i­ment with sim­i­lar ideas of your own. If you want more in­spi­ra­tion lis­ten to David Gil­mour, Jimi Hen­drix, Ste­vie Ray Vaughan or the myr­iad of other play­ers who reg­u­larly use these small-but­po­tent mini-sweeps in their play­ing.
