Watch the Stitch in Time online guitar lesson by Jeff Beasley from 50 Speed Picking Guitar Licks You MUST Know
Stitch In Time is a staple lick for me that I gleaned from Shawn Lane. It combines an old school pentatonic idea coupled with a modern inclusion of the b5 tone at a cadence point. The b5 creates serious dissonance and the overall lick requires speed picking skills. The lick is also versatile enough to be played over a 7th of minor 7th chord.
