Wah Guitar Week Lick#2

Our second wah wah guitar lick uses a primarily muted 16th note rhythm where only the last 16th note in each bar is not muted but instead an octave is played. The octave pattern descends from E to D to C and the ends goes back to D. In the wah wah example in the video I start by keeping the wah in the bass position and just accent the last note of each bar with the wah. Gradually I deviate from this pattern a little and just move the wah when it feels right to me. Just for fun try to reverse the pattern and accent the muted notes with the wah in full treble mode ( toe down) and then bring it to full bass on the octave.
