Ivan Mihaljevic Guitar Lick of The Week
This week’s episode features guitar virtuoso Ivan Mihaljevic. In this episode Ivan teaches a guitar lick taken from a track called Choosh Pies which is on his Destination Unknown album released in 2010. The lick is basically an arpeggio in C lydian or D mixolydian depending on which way you look at it and is an arpeggio of C sus2 with a raised 11th. You could also look at it as a D7 with an added 11th (G) and is played in 16th notes. The guitar lick is played using a legato (no alternate picking ) technique and also features a tapping slide.
TIP: Try to play the tapping slide very lightly as it will make the lick easier to play. It’s a common mistake to tap too hard and this can often leave your tapping finger very sore.
