This week’s lick is based on the A harmonic minor scale and is similar to something the great Swede Yngwie Malmsteen would play.

Use strict alternate picking and a metronome – start slowly and build up speed gradually!

Welcome to my new weekly instructional series of guitar licks – a series specifically designed to help you expand your musical vocabulary (your Licktionary!) on the electric guitar!

The idea is to create a great vocabulary of interesting guitar licks, focusing on contemporary guitar techniques, like sweep picking, tapping , string skipping and more

Every week i will be posting a new lick for you – some of these will be in TAB – some in both TAB and audio and sometimes i will throw in some video as well!

i hope you enjoy the series, and if you have any questions, feel free to contact me at ioannis@ioannis.org!!
