    Nice lick, Maxwell. I guess I'm dumb or something, because the idea of playing basically the same pattern on three different pairs of strings, like you did in this example, somehow never occured to me... duh.

    Normally, I just think of the chord tones in different areas of the fingerboard... is the "three pairs" concept one that you frequently use, or did it just happen accidentally in this case?
    I live in a little tourist town called Niagara-On-The-Lake, Ontario, Canada, which is about twenty miles north of Niagara Falls.

    If you are ever planning on visiting the beautiful Niagara area, feel free to PM me and perhaps we can get together and do some jamming.

    thank you for the comment Mr. Lango-Django! i do like to use the repeated pattern frequently in my playing. you can do a six note run playing 3 on the low E the next three on the A, then jump to the octave position and play the same sequence of 6 notes on the D and G then again, jump to the next octave position and play those same 6 notes on the B and high E.

    even though you are playing the same exact 6 notes three times, since you are going up in register it creates movement that begs resolution. just think of it like diminished, how it just keeps going. its up to you to find the right place to resolve the run. and thats what makes it fun.

    this type of pattern playing i learned from listening to joe pass and also steve howe of Yes.

    i hope you find this useful in your playing!

    Well, thanks, Maxwell, I imagine I probably will spend some time trying to get something out of this approach, even though names like Joe Pass and Steve Howe may not inspire enthusiasm from many of our brethren here :mrgreen:

    I'm the kind of desperate character that, while truly preferring to steal musical gold from Django the King, is not above stealing stuff from the lower nobility such as Joe Pass and Steve Howe, especially if it what I like to call "low hanging fruit"...

    Have you ever thought of doing a YouTube "three pairs of strings for dummies" kind of guitar lesson?
