Guitar Lick over Chord Progression in A #2

This is another guitar lick is over the progression we looked at last time. It is based on the
notes of the C Major/ A Minor scale which are the natural notes on the guitar meaning no sharps or flats. I based the starting part off the root of the first chord A and let inspiration take it from there. To play along with the video follow the tab and remember to tune down a half step.
This example is a bit more complex than the last one. It incorporates lots of legato playing using hammer and pulls and slides.I wanted to keep the phrasing a close to the written tab and notation as possible but it is a little stiff so I would recommend given the rhythm a more relaxed feel and let the notes breath a bit.
