Descending lick

Saturday, December 1, 2012

Hey Everyone,

I was wondering if anyone had any knowledge on a lick that sounds like a very fast descending line of notes. I hear it a lot in new progressive bands like Yonder Mountain, and Greensky, except I never remember to note what song or where in the song it happens so I can reference it later. Here is a video of the Seldom Scene's Rider and in it Ben Eldrigde does this little lick or style I am referring to. I'd really appreciate some clarification if it is actually a designed lick or maybe a style of playing. Whatever it is, if anyone can either point me in the direction to learn more about it or can give me a tabulator example of it, that would be awesome. Thanks.


The specific reference point is at 5:36 in the video

I love bluegrass and hope to advance my banjo skills to where I can create a new form of bluegrass.
