Watch the Five O' Clock Somewhere online guitar lesson by Jeff Beasley from 50 Shred Guitar Licks You MUST Know

This Pentatonic lick has been widely used by many great rock and shred guitarists. The lick starts with a whole step bend and moves into a 3 note arpeggio followed by a triplet feel melody. In this case I've phrased it in quintuplets (5's). It's very challenging to alternate pick as each pass through the five notes requires the opposite picking of the previous pass. Nevertheless it is a staple for any rock or shred guitarist.
