Licks For Rock Soloing Lick 4
The fourth lick is a mostly descending phrase that starts with a hammer-on from the eighth to the tenth frets on the second string. Play the eighth fret on the first string with the first finger. Move back to the second string and play the tenth fret. Pull off to the eighth fret.
The key to getting the transition smooth when moving to the eighth fret on the second string to the ninth fret on the third string is to play the ninth fret with the third finger. Pull off to the seventh fret and then slide to the fifth fret on the third string. That will get you to the fifth position. End the lick with a pull-off from the seventh to the fifth fret. The last note is on the seventh fret on the fourth string. Feel free to add some vibrato for good measure.
