Lick #2

Rapid Fire

This lick has a nice blast of 32nd notes right before transitioning to the next tremolo. The key to playing this accurately is having both fingers down on the 4th and 2nd frets before starting it. Hold down that 2nd fret note with your 1st finger until you have to play the open string, This way all you are doing is raising and lowering your second finger for the fast part. That's how to be efficient with your movement. Being efficient will help you play faster.
