Rock Guitar Lick 7: Angular Hybrid-Picking Lick

In this guitar lesson we’re going to look at another guitar lick that uses hybrid-picking. If you haven’t already checked out rock guitar lick 6, then you should probably do that before starting with this lesson.

Unlike the lick from the previous lesson, the guitar lick for this lesson has a much more angular sound to it. What I mean by angular is that the lick uses some wide intervals in it, and some of the note movements are quite odd. It definitely won’t be to everyone’s taste, but I happen to really like it! 🙂

Here’s the lick for you to check out…

 Rock Guitar Lick 7: Angular Hybrid-Picking Lick

Despite the fact that this guitar lick is composed from the E Minor Blues scale, it doesn’t have a particularly bluesy sound to my ears. But if you did want to make it sound bluesier, you could experiment with bending the 14th fret note on the G-string a little bit.

If you look at the TAB now you’ll notice that I have used the symbol a five times. This means that to pick these notes you’ll need to use the ring finger of your picking-hand. Although, I should say here that this is the way I prefer to do it. If you want to use another finger to pick those notes, then you can do that.

Have fun with this lick!
