Watch the Intervallica online guitar lesson by Jeff Beasley from 50 Shred Guitar Licks You MUST Know

Here we take an intervallic approach to a descending melody in d minor. Beginning on the 6th tone (Bb) on the first string 6th fret, and descending in major 2nds (2 frets) and minor 2nds (1 fret). Major and minor 2nds are known as simple intervals (distances) in music thus the term intervallic. This lick has an Yngwie Malmsteen/J.S. Bach ring to it and is great for picking and fretting hand synchronization.
