this lick from 1:18 -1:21. its a pretty common lick of his. I’m having a hard time getting my speed to increase on this one. in chunks, the lick is relatively easy. but when put together i plateau pretty quickly. havent heard anyone really discuss this one before, and there are quite a few mechanics going on that make it pretty awkward when pieced together. there are a couple of economy motions in there, but they hardest part is transitioning into ending phrase where hes doing up strokes on the E string and down strokes on the B string. i guess thats outside picking.
however whats interesting is that you can tell that althought his lines usually start on downstrokes, it actually IS the upstrokes the help lead him around the fretboard in a faster way. up or down. maybe thats why he emphasizes the picking away technique even though he doesnt really do it when burning. must something that subconsciously allows him to scoot around the fretboard quicker.
