This lick is performed in C major, but can be played in any key and any position on the neck. It’s a 5-string arpeggio from the A string to the high E string. It begins with a slide from B to C, then a down-stroke sweep until the upstroke on the B on the high E String. Next, alternate picking on the high E followed by a down-stroke sweep from the high E down to the A string and repeat. The end of the lick is a series of slides and hammer-ons from the high E string down to the low E string.
Lick 2 is performed with the flat-picking technique. You down pick a note, then pluck the note on adjacent higher string upward with the second or third finger of your right hand. The first part is straight flat-picking, and is followed by hammer-ons and pull-offs. The third part is a series of hammer-ons, flat-picking, and slides followed by straight two-note alternate string flat-picking down a box pentatonic pattern.
This lick is a series of fast alternate picking while muting the strings simultaneously with your picking hand, in quadruplets. Here it's performed in D Minor, but it can be played in any key and in any position as well. It is followed by groups of sextuplets with muted alternate picking, and hammer-ons and pull-offs.
This example is a series of four-note tapping patterns, while string skipping back and forth from the high E to the B to the G strings and back. It’s followed by the same style tapping lick, but the right hand tapped note jumps from one note to another back & forth within the pattern which includes hammer-ons and pull-offs.
This lick is achieved by picking the first note and hammering-on the second. The third note on the high E is plucked with the flat-picking technique, followed by a pull-off and slide to the next note, and repeat. Next is the same style lick, but the third note is two notes together, so pluck both notes on the E and B strings at the same time with your right hand second and third fingers. It ends with a downward sweep arpeggio from the high E to the low E.
