There's a full bend on the 9.
So how would you pick this?

Am having a hard time getting this lick right. IMO the most "pain in the a$$ lick" I've ever heard. But it just sounds so awesome.

Also if anybody could direct me to a youtube video lesson on this lick that would be great.


Thanks,

I just tried, and I play it totally alternate picking, so down, up, down, pull off, then repeat starting with an up:
down (on that 9), up, down, pull off - up (on that 9), down, up, pull off - etc. etc.

I play it alternate picking aswell, But I can get terribly inaccurate and hit the B string when I am going to pick the e string. So I wondered if there was a better way to play it. Should I just practise it with alternate picking.

The way I play it is down on 9, down on 7 (high e), up on 10th (B), pull off and back to down on the 9th for G.

I can't play it too well, but I play it this way: up, down, up, pull-off. Sometimes I pick the first one down as well.

If I really wanted to play it faster and more consistently I would probably play it: down, up, down, pull-off

EDIT: As in where that lick is from, it's some of the most common metal licks. Found in tons of early 80's stuff, nearly every Adrian Smith solo etc.

Shitloads of rock and blues songs and pretty much anything Ace Frehley ever played.
Actually called Mark!
