Watch the Fast 2-String Reps online guitar lesson by Angus Clark from 50 Radio Rock Licks You MUST Know

Repetition licks are a great way to generate a lot of energy in the music wihtout expending a whole lot yourself. In this pattern of sextuplets, you'll be using the top two strings of the basic pentatonic shape. Then, you extend your pinky to grab a high F#, creating a subtle variation in the back half of the lick. This is a bit more Zakk Wylde than Hendrix, and probably best to save for a portion of a solo where you've already built up some speed. Although, Randy Rhoads starts the Mr. Crowley solo with a fast pattern in this vein, so there is precedent for using this kind of thing when you want to start things off with a bang. But not everyone has the luxury of having Ozzy sing "Yeah!" or "Go! go! go!" right before your solo starts. If only, right?
