This week I'll share one of my favorite licks, which uses string skipping and stretching to cover large intervals while outlining a minor 9 chord. It's simple yet challenging to play, and sounds beautiful at fast or slow tempos. Fluid alternate picking is the key to making this lick nice and legato.

If you've enjoyed the last few months of Lick of the Week, please see my other guitar and mandolin lessons on this blog. I am also available for private guitar and mandolin lessons in NYC or via Skype.
