Watch the Lynch Time! online guitar lesson by Chris Buono from 50 Metal Guitar Licks You MUST Know

While it's always a good move to exercise restraint and not play a million-notes-per-minute, sometimes, well, it's exactly what the doctor ordered!! A great way to start getting some speed licks under your fingers ready to whip out during the next jam where the dress is black and more black, is to explore some simple scalular runs. So as not to sound too pattern-like, break up the monotony with some legato ideas as heard in this George Lynch inspired lick where each sequence of notes played on the 2nd string is only picked once followed by the other two notes in the three-note-per-string pattern being played with hammer-ons.
