Learn the lyrics to this song and sing it. That will help even more. Dark Hollow is definitely a jam standard, and you should know how to play the basic melody with confidence before trying to play all that fancy stuff :)

    If you look/listen closely, you'll notice that this lick is separated into 2 phrases. The first is a 'C run' and the second phrase sounds like a pickup into the next measure of the tune you'd use this in. Check out the Intermediate version of Dark Hollow to get some context for where this is used.
