Lick of the Day #6


Today we have a simple chord progression with a few salt & pepper effects thrown in.

Playing simply takes quite a bit of effort. When you play fast and sloppy it’s hard to notice mistakes. When you slow things down every note counts.

With that in mind, don’t blow off the simple hammers and pulls. Playing slow and clean is a great way to make a cool lick stand out – like the quarter note hammer in the third measure.
