Watch the Without Night online guitar lesson by Neil Zaza from 50 Melodic Rock Licks You MUST Know

It’s all about contrasts. Take a soaring melodic line and throw in the heat of fast picked scale and you have something explosive! It’s easy to do and has a tremendous amount of dynamic impact. You’ll notice in the beginning of the lick that we are using our favorite melodic device: the half step bend. We are trying to wrestle out every bit of emotion before we bring in the blazing guns with a speedy Bb lydian scale. This lick uses call and response, half step bends, slides and wide vibrato to get a dramatic message across.
