The 'Lick of the Week' string skipping/tapping lick is taken from Phil Braithwaite's 'Outside Lines' guitar lesson. This lick is inspired by guitarists such as Nuno Bettencourt and Tony Macalpine. The idea behind this lick is that it progressively becomes more 'out' as it goes on. The reason for this is that it is played in a cycle of fourths.
