Hi guys! In this lesson i will help you out whit some licks. This lesson is recommended to intermediate level guitarist. I also recommend to play these lick without looking at the fretboard, and play it when you read the tab. This will help you to play without looking at the fretboard. Start out slow (something like 90-100 BPM) and play constant eight notes. No stopping at all.
