PHIL HILBORNE’S ONE-MINUTE LICK

Guitar Techniques - - INTRO -

TH­sis lick offers a nice work­out for your fret­ting hand and il­lus­trates legato ideas in the style of Paul Gil­bert, John Petrucci or Zakk Wylde. it is based on a se­quenced G Mi­nor Pen­ta­tonic (G-Bb-c-D-f) scale with an added 9th (A). Take care with fret­ting-hand ac­cu­racy, par­tic­u­larly when per­form­ing the fourth-finger stretches. Grad­u­ally build­ing speed is the key to suc­cess. in the penul­ti­mate bar i revert to a first and third finger only fin­ger­ing, as this is how i would play it - the frets are closer to­gether in th­ese higher po­si­tions and i find it eas­ier. Try this fin­ger­ing then amend it to suit your preferences. of course, ex­per­i­ment with ideas of your own in­ven­tion - in other keys and us­ing dif­fer­ing scale types.
