TOP THREE LICKS

Lick 1 Bars 16-17 – 16th-note legato lick

Brett uses this style of phrase all the way through the solo so it’s worth get­ting to grips with how he ar­tic­u­lates these. The use of po­si­tion shifts, fin­ger slides and ham­mer-ons and pull-offs are all key to the sound.

Lick 2 Bar 48 – Three-note re­peat­ing lick

This idea is one that Brett is fond of and uses a re­peat­ing group of three-semi­qua­ver notes. As there are four semi­qua­vers per beat, the start of the pat­tern shifts around within the bar and this su­per­im­poses a cool syn­co­pated feel. This style of idea can be re­peated for as long as you wish.

Lick 3 Bars 63-64 – Quar­ter-note triplet phras­ing

This lick helps to re­lease a bit of ten­sion af­ter all the in­tri­cate fu­sion licks that Brett has been re­gal­ing us with. The quar­ter-note triplet phras­ing pro­vides a con­trast and sounds rhyth­mi­cally quite in­ter­est­ing as the sec­ond two notes in the triplet are in ef­fect syn­co­pated.
