Space Lick

Space. The final frontier? This little tapping lick starts out with a major arpeggio on the 1st, 2nd and 3rd strings. Starting at C, down a whole step to Bb, down a whole step to Ab and finally ending on G. From here we use our right hand index finger to hammer on and slide up a fret, back down and pull off. The notes on the 1st string are out of G-3,5,1,b2. It jumps to the 2nd string out of G-1, 3, 5, b6. The added b2 and b6 gives it a space sounding vibe. Have fun.
