DADGAD Acoustic Guitar Fingerstyle Lick #3

Our third DADGAD acoustic guitar lick is based on a lick I came up with from a voicing of the Dadd9 chord. I am a big fan of Guitar Techniques magazine and Stuart Ryan has a current column called "Celtic Guitar". I'm in Canada so I am always a few issues behind but in the latest issue I have he uses a cool  voicing of a Dadd9 chord in an arrangement of a Turlough O'Carolan song. I liked the sound of this voicing so I started my guitar lick of with this chord played in single notes. After that I tried to come up with a celtic flavored sound that was basic yet sounded interesting.
