Chris Geden: Lick of the Week

For this weeks' "Lick of the Week" I chose a mixture of techniques that can be used over an A7 backing track.

The techniques used are:

Left-hand Tapping (Hammer-on from nowhere)
Right-hand Tapping
The lick starts off with an A mixolydian run, adding a minor 3rd passing note in-between and continues up an A dominant 9th arpeggio. It then slips back into A mixolydian and finishes off with some right-hand tapping and finally a left-hand tapping (hammer-on from nowhere) run in A minor pentatonic.
