I've been working on the solo to "Armed and Ready" based on this rather good video:https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9qS5XexGiUA&t=631s
Just after 4mins, the author goes through the second lick from the solo, which is a bend up from D to E on the 2nd string, followed by 2 Es on the first, then repeat - a well used blues/rock lick.
Anyway what I find awkward about the way the author plays it is his right hand; down stroke on the D, then TWO upstrokes on the E string. I can see why - this way you are always playing outside but for some reason I find the two upstrokes together fiddly.
Any comments? Is this the way to play this type of lick, or does anyone have any better suggestions?
