Melodic Rock Guitar Lick and Riff

Today's guitar lick is a melodic one incorporating slight pinch harmonics and a muted rhythm. The muting is done with the right hand palm edge resting against the guitar's bridge. The Pinch harmonics are very slight and are achieved by hitting the pick and flesh of the picking hand thumb against the string at the same time. The examples in this lick are pretty tame for some wild pinch harmonic madness check out Dimebag, Zakk Wylde, or Van Halen.
