Watch the Pedalmania online guitar lesson by Jeff Beasley from 50 Shred Guitar Licks You MUST Know
This lick incorporates the flat-picking technique coupled with the pedal technique in e minor. Flat-picking or hybrid picking involves the use of the pick and the fingers of the picking hand working together to execute a melody. The pedal is a melodic technique where a line of notes is played and every other note is a particular note or notes that is inserted between each note of the line. In this case the note (E) is the pedal and is flat-picked with the middle finger of the picking hand.
