When you break down the rhythm of many break neck solos from the shred world you'll often see these speed merchants playing sextuplets (six notes-ber-beat). This particular subdivision of the quarter note lends itself well to elongated licks that span two or four measures as seen in this lick inspired by the perplexing virtuosity of Michael Angelo Batio. Don't worry, this lick only utilizes one neck played right side up and requires only one hand on the fretboard, which by the way, is not fretting the notes from the top. Whew.
