Watch the Minor Madness online guitar lesson by Scott Allen from 50 Rock Virtuoso Licks You MUST Know

This lick is a great example of how to use legato to ascend up the neck. Inspired by the great Joe Satriani it uses mostly hammer ons and pull offs and very little picking. Here we are using the E minor scale and moving up one string. Make sure that you are making the note volume consistent by hitting the strings hard on the hammers and following them with solid pull offs. Also be sure to use your picking hand to mute unwanted strings.
