Watch the Thin Air online guitar lesson by Anthony Stauffer from 50 Monster SRV Licks You Must Know

For this lick we're moving up an entire octave to the 17th fret. We're not going to use a lot of speed for this lick - the more important issue is playing smoothly where the frets are closer together and your hand is at a very different angle. Up here, playing smoothly is nearly as difficult as playing fast anywhere else. It requires a new category of muscle memories and plenty of practice.
