ADVANCED LICKS EXAMPLE6 GUTHRIE GOVAN
Chromatic passing notes are a useful device to bring colour and tension to our licks. During bar 1, focus on the smooth position changes as you descend the neck. For bar 2, start slowly and get familiar with the notes in each position. As you increase the tempo, use the tapped notes as visual and rhythmic landmarks. For the tone, use your bridge pick and a decent amount of gain. Delay can clutter the detail, so use reverb to add depth while retaining the clarity.
