I messed around with open strings and a new lick was born. This one is a country lick in C7 (Mixolydian).
The two distinguishing features here are the use of the 7/8 time signature, and the different motion of the harmonies. The arpeggios move in different patterns and the result is that the interval between the notes changes every time. The idea was to create a web of sound where the two parts merge into each other.
This lick is based around D Phrygian Dominant scale using a variety of techniques including legato, economy picking and tapping.
