How to Run Up the Fretboard In A Single Lick

Ever wanted to find a way to zip all the way up (or down) the fretboard and make it look like you really mean business with that thing?

There are a lot of different ways to do that, but in today’s video, we’ll look at one in particular works off of thirds. It’s kind of a two-steps-forward, one-step-back kind of thing, so it has a bit of that slinky effect. Call it what you like – it sounds good and that’s the main thing.

We’re going to be working in the key of A minor here, with a jam track that you can get free here.

One of the nice things about this particular run is that it can be easily adapted to as long or as short as you want. In fact, if you wanted, you could use it as a framework and riff around in the vicinity of each stage of it, and really take your time with things. Alternatively, you could toss everything on the table all at once, and go for broke.

If you like the style of playing you see in this video, I encourage you to check this out for more of the same.
