Slash makes good use of ‘sequencing’ when he plays faster runs in solos, what does that mean? When playing a scale it can sound a little boring in the context of using it as part of a solo but it’s easier to play fast as it’s usually something we’ve practiced a lot, so when we learn various sequences (playing the scale but change the order of notes into a pattern like ‘triplets’ or ‘quadruplets’) it makes the boring sounding scale sound interesting and it becomes easy to play fast once you’re used to the pattern!
The lick in this video is a quadruplet run, meaning it is divided into groups of four notes, if you look at it this way it will be easier to learn it as you will see the pattern quicker, be able to remember the notes faster and be able to execute the lick more efficiently.
