This one is a strange little fellow... a concept I got from a friend who's in a bit of a mess and sees shapes on the guitar neck.
I've used it as an examples of a visual shape, but there are many famous examples too - at the end of the main solo in Jump by Van Halen, there is a fast scale run that is just a finger pattern on using fingers 1,2,4 moving across the strings - it sounds great even though it doesn't stick to the scale!!
Hope you enjoy playing this lick and exploring the idea!!
