A Gary Moore Inspired Descending Lick in A Minor
This is a monster descending lick using the A minor scale. It is played high up on the fretboard, at the A minor position beginning at the 17th fret.
This lick sounds good, and also makes for a good exercise, for a couple reasons. First, It is high up on the neck – which is always difficult. Second, it uses the entire scale. Often people practice licks in one small area – it is good to make use of he entire scale, and get used to visualizing and playing through an entire position of it.
This is a pretty flexible lick that you will be able to fit into a lot of different styles.
