Watch the Blue Tude online guitar lesson by Jennifer Batten from 50 Ultra Intervallic Guitar Licks You Must Know
I start out this section with a four bar phrase. It's pretty lengthy so feel free to chop it up and use the first half or the second half separately. I began with half step bends, bending the flat five to the five and the sharp seven to the root. The next group of sassy half step bending goes from the sixth to the flat seven and ninth to the flat third. The second half of the phrase begins with a brief diatonic 5th intervals pattern. I continue by alternating with the flat 5th and 5th degree. There is also a three note D minor flat five arpeggio, (or diminished triad) root, flat 3, flat 5). Be aware of arpeggios within riffs. It will help you understand where the licks are coming from, where they can be used, and it helps in memorizing as well..
