    Hey guys, Micky Crystal here and today I’ve got a very cool hybrid picking legato lick for you.

    I’m going to show you a couple of cool exercise to go along with this, and once you’ve learned the lick and the ideas behind it’ll enable you to create your own awesome hybrid picking legato licks.

    In this lesson I break down a diminished lick which makes heavy use of economy picking.

    As well as breaking down the lick I also explain why I chose to use economy picking to play it, and how much easier it is to play the lick at speed by using this technique. I even demonstrate just how much more difficult it would be to attempt this lick without economy picking (it’s tough!) and I’ve included some cool exercises to help improve your economy picking chops.
