Progressive Rock Guitar Lick

Today's lick is a prog rock guitar lick with middle eastern flavored tinges. The lick employs some unusual rhythms, staccato and legato. The tab is a loose representation of the music so listen to the phrasing to get the lick down. As always though use this as a starting point to create your own material and further your exploration and learning on the guitar. The video has both fretting and picking hand views and regular and slow speed presentation of the lick. At the end of the instructional segment of the video there is an improvised guitar jam that illustrates afew additional licks using the same scalar patterns and phrasing.
