Powerlicks Explained

Have you ever wondered how the pro's play never ending runs, start and end them when they want, and have them be as short or as long as they want? This freedom can be learned and the method is powerlicks. A powerlick is a set of complementary short little sequences that combines into bigger more complex sequences.

The first thing you learn is to combine these sequences in one spot on the neck. Then you learn how to move it vertically and horizontally but following a simple system that helps you stay in control when speed increases.

In this way you quickly develop the ability to play improvised super fast runs that start and end when ever you want them to.

My Most Used Power Lick
This Powerlick is one of my all time favorite alternate picking shred licks. It’s sharp and accurate, but wild and unpredictable at the same time. I use alternate picking for the entire lick, but I will also show you how to play it using hammer on and pull offs.
Compose it or improvise it
An endless stream of flowing notes that provide unlimited variety to your runs. From the simple and easy "gears" of this power lick, you can build an incredible vocabulary of legato runs, licks and phrases.
Use it in any style
The Rogue is one of those Power Licks you get addicted to playing. Once you have it up to speed it feels effortless and comfortable to use in almost any context and style of music.
The central key
When you learn to create a lot from very little - The number of things you can do will explode. This is a central key to building incredible skills fast. It is also the guiding principle behind NEUROTIC.
