Hi and welcome to my 1st Lick of the Week. This lick is taken from the song called “Ride 'n Run”, from the album “Unconditioned” by Pavic. The full song is also available for free download. For this track tune down 1/2 step and tune down another whole step the low E string. From low to high strings you have: Db, Ab, Db, Gb, Bb, Eb (you won't use the low 6th string for the lead part, only for the rhythm). The solo is played over 2 chords, E and F major chords. The scale used for the solo is the E phrygian dominant (the 5th mode of the A harmonic minor scale) and the notes are: E, F, G#, A, B, C, D



The solo starts with note bends and vibrato, following a short scale run using 16th notes. Then we have a tapping section. I am using my 3rd and 4th right hand fingers for the tapping note so I can still hold the pick with the other 2 fingers. You may choose to tap using your index finger if you find it more comfortable.

Following the tapping section there's a run using diminished arpeggios (F, G#, B, D), you are still using the notes of the E phrygian dominant scale, it's just another way of thinking. The solo ends with a note bend and a right hand tapped harmonic.

Have fun
