In this lesson we'll look at the basic four note lick and start to move it around. We pick two strings to use, two strings that are adjacent, meaning right next to one another. In this case we will start with the G & D strings. We play the first three notes on the upper string (G string) and the final note on the lower string (D string).

Make sure to practice the hammer-on and pull-off to get a good clean sound. Also, muting with tips of your fretting hand fingers is crucial. As well, muting with the left hand to stop any other strings from ringing is very important. Making sure that only the notes that are supposed to ring do actually ring is the difference between making you sound like a sloppy amateur and a competent guitarist.
