John Petrucci Speed Licks: Part II - Example 1

This example is a bit less challenging. If you are struggling with the first lick, I would recommend that you place your focus here.

Once again, this lick is very simple, and relies mostly on chops. If you are new 4 note per string patterns, this should act as a great practice tool!

I sometimes like to use pull-off's for the 4th note of each string. You can easily encorporate a legato approach to this idea.

Key is E major, and the scale is E mixolydian.
