Drop D Clean Guitar Lick

This is a clean guitar lick in Drop D tuning that uses a droning open D string and two slight variations on a movable chord shape. This lick is meant to be played slowly and let the notes ring for their full duration. The rhythm is all eighth notes. The chord shapes can be a little tricky so warm up and start slowly. If the chord shapes are difficult for you try everything an octave up - don't try to force anything and remember stop if you feel any pain or discomfort - don't force your hands to do anything they are not ready for.
