In this guitar lesson, now available on YouTube.com, Silvio Gazquez teaches a cool lick in the style of legendary guitarist Joe Satriani.
A “lick” is a sequence of notes from a scale that are used in a section of a solo, by using an array of techniques such as bends, slides, and hammer-on/pull-offs.
In this lead guitar lesson, Silvio teaches a lick in the style of Joe Satriani in the key of D Major that incorporates the technique of sliding, the entire lick is played on the second and first strings. Silvio starts off by picking the 12th fret of the 2nd string and sliding to the 15th fret and then picks the 17th fret of the first string and then picks the 15th fret of the second string and slides to the 14th fret and then picks the 15th fret of the first string. He continues this same pattern descending diatonically down the fret board until he finishes the lick on the 3rd fret of the second string. Gazquez demonstrates lick at tempo and then slows it down so even the novice can pick it up quickly. Guitar TAB’s are available for this lead guitar lesson at GuitarControl.com
