In this lesson I’m going to show you a pretty crazy lick of mine, using the Mixolydian mode. Don’t worry if you aren’t confident with modes, there’s actually only one note difference between Mixolydian and Major, but it gives this lick a totally different flavour!
Although it’s fairly short, this lick packs in a ton of different techniques including alternate picking, legato picking, sweep picking and a really cool sounding string skip octave section right at the end.
