Open "E" Descending Riff
This lick requires you to play a strict 16th note rhythm with an even feel to it. The picking pattern used is going to be a critical part of getting this riff up to speed. If there are inconsistencies in your picking hand, it will be impossible for your 2-hand synchronization to match up perfectly.
- Start Slow with this exercise. Don't attempt to play along to these audio tracks until you have this lick memorized 100% without looking at the pdf.
- Begin at 50bpm and work up from there. Do not jump ahead to the faster versions. Speed building MUST be completed in small incremental sections that gradually increase in speed.
