Watch the Slippery Descent online guitar lesson by Chris Buono from 50 Rock Guitar Licks You MUST Know

Much like bending and the two main legato techniques--hammer-ons and pull-offs--sliding is a technique that allows guitarists to smoothly go from one note to another. In the case of this zig-zag-ified lick the smoothness factor has been maximized to the fullest. Contained within a somewhat descending sequence of notes derived from a D major scale on the top two strings, this lick will have you slippin' and slidin' down the neck like a horse on roller skates.
