Watch the Rapid Fire Triplets online guitar lesson by Jon Finn from 30 Melodic Modal Rock Licks You MUST Know

This one has slightly wider variety of rhythms. Sometimes you play 16th note triplets, sometimes 8th notes, sometimes swing 16th notes.

It opens with a bend from F# (the 6th degree of A Dorian) up to G (the b7). After wandering around the fretboard in A Dorian for a moment, it goes back to "rapid fire triplets" (hence the name). Not that many of the notes played here are either pull-offs or hammer-ons. Not all the notes are picked. Next is a Cmaj7 arpeggio played over the Am7 chord. This gives the effect of playing an Am9 arpeggio. Finally, a Dorian lick that ends by matching the lick is played by the rhythm section.

Check the notation and tablature to get the finer details. Practice with the backing track, then invent your own version of this lick!
