Untitled from November 2000 (Legato Licks)

Hey everybody. More legato madness this month. Hope it will be of some use. We’re going to start off with four little patterns.


 Pattern 1:                       Pattern 2:

|--5h7h8p7p5-------------|       |--5h8p5h7p5------------|
|------------------h8----|       |------------------h8---|
|------------------------|       |-----------------------|
|------------------------|       |-----------------------|
|------------------------|       |-----------------------|
|------------------------|       |-----------------------|

 Pattern 3:                           Pattern 4:
|--5h7h8p7p5h7p5---------------|     |--5-------------------------|
|-------------------------h8---|     |----h8p6p5--5h6h8-----------|
|------------------------------|     |---------------7------------|
|------------------------------|     |----------------------------|
|------------------------------|     |----------------------------|
|------------------------------|     |----------------------------|

(note: the first three notes onpattern 3 are played as triplets) Try to play these licks one after another like a big lick. You can mix ’em up and change ’em around a little too. It can lead to making some really extend thepatterns throughout the rest of the strings. This next lick is a little build up thing (or you might want to say build down when descending). But anyways, it’s groups of four. You’ll want to try to play everything as even as possible, just as you want to do so with all the other licks as well.


 Ascending

|-----------------------------------------------------------------
|-----------------------------------------------------------------

|----4h5h7-4h5h7----5h7-------7-----------------------------------
|--7--------------------------------------------------------------


-----------------------------------------------------------|
----------------------------------------and so on----------|
---------6--------6h7----6h7h9-----------------------------|
--------9--------------------------------------------------|
-----------------------------------------------------------|
-----------------------------------------------------------|



Descending

|--10p9p7------9p7---------7-----------------------------------
|--------------10-------10p8----10p8p7-10p8p7----8p7-------7---
|-----------------------------------------------------------9--
|--------------------------------------------------------------
|--------------------------------------------------------------
|--------------------------------------------------------------

----------------------------------------------------------------|
----------------------and so on---------------------------------|
-----9p7----9p7\6-9p7p6-----------------------------------------|
----------------------------------9-----------------------------|
----------------------------------------------------------------|
----------------------------------------------------------------|

 

Alrighty… here’s a little pattern that u can move around anywhere on the neck and it’s kinda kewl. The notes are played as triplets. Try to do it with no picking or u can pick the first note of each section.


|--19p15h17h19p17p15--17p14h15h17p15p14--15p12h14h15p14p12--|
|----------------------------and so on----------------------|
|-----------------------------------------------------------|
|-----------------------------------------------------------|
|-----------------------------------------------------------|
|-----------------------------------------------------------|

 

Well that’s all for this month guys. I hope you enjoy what’s been provided and that it can be of some use in your guitar playing. Good luck and happy shredding!
