"Spider Dance" Guitar Lick

I came up with this lick while practicing an exercise from Matt Hale's "Art of Motion" from Shred Academy. I call this lick "Spider Dance" because it will have your fretting hand dancing all over the fretboard.This lick uses some ususual intervals and wider stretches on the neck. Take it slow and remember always stop immediately if you feel any pain and never play through pain. Warm up thouroughly before playing anything new or difficult. The guitar lick begins with a sequence of triplets starting with an octave pattern and then moves to a section based around eighth notes that incorporates some open strings.

Posting the next couple licks early to get some much needed guitar practice in. Im trying to learn "Muffin Man" by Frank Zappa and it is a real challenge to say the least. If you have never heard it check it out.
