In this video (part of a series of 6), Justin teaches a cool method of "cycling" through 3 note per string patterns. I cannot, however, figure out how to apply this to my playing. The reason being that it cannot be played and counted with a metronome. Like, is this a quarter note lick? A 16th triplet lick? I cannot understand how to work this into a lick unless it was just one of those crazy ones that continues to shift notes on the downbeat. Maybe I'm missing something very simple here.

lots off incoherent gibberish. I had to quit listening after he said "flick offs." He needs to sober up and either comb his hair or put his hat back on

I like at the end how he stressed that it should be played really clean and then he demonstrated the exact opposite

this set of articles may give some guidance http://www.guitarworld.com/guitar-101-mastering-rhythm-syncopation-part-4-more-fun-triplets-and-hemiola

it can be played with a metronome lol. Depends on how fast u play and how fast the 'nome is set. Either play triplets or play 6 notes per beat.

A third possibility, which can be a little iffy but can work, is just to wail out a series of these licks without strict regard for timing and aim for a target note which is either going to be a bend or a vibrato note. If you land on the target note on a beat then all is well, if u dont you use the bend or vibrato to "make it right." If I remember correctly, Jason Becker more or less said he did that on the solo to "A little aint enough" on one of the licks. (but it may be a different song he was referring to...its been over 20 years lol)

Edit--> pretty sure the lick in question was in "its showtime"
