Shredding Practice 1

Here is a lick that i wrote on A minor, if you play it you might hear that it is similar to Colorado Bulldog's intro played by Paul Gilbert well it is inspired by that intro. But no worries, mine is easier to play, not only because it won't have long stretches (not as long as Bulldog anyway) it is also incorporate pentatonic scales, that should be easy to memorize.
It can be played in other keys but i wrote it on A minor..Enjoy
