Trey uses this all the time.  This is just the example that came to mind.  If you could tab this or an example of something similar, or even just explained what he's doing I would greatly appreciate it.

So i don't know how to tab but i can explain.  For the brother jam your playing in e flat on the 15Th fret on the g string  you slide back a fret then back up then play the root above on the b string on the 16Th fret.  then slide again on the gstring then after sliding again play the next note up the scale and repeat. then you can slide it back to the d flat chord on the change and repeat.  Just play around with it using different patterns after the slide. Also during the one part Red goes up during the change to the d flat on that you sharp the fifth in the e flat mixo which is b then to c sharp and then run back down the e flat mixo scale.  Sorry the explanation is a little rough but i hope it helps.....

Hey YEM nice use of a link that gets you right to the point. I didn't know you could link like that. More folks should use that method.
Now I want to learn this lick. It's sick. A sick lick.

Trey also does another similar lick to this, but not so much at quick tempos, and much easier to execute and sounds cool.  He descends down a 2nd inversion triad to the 5th scale tone and does that same little slide down to the b5 and back up to the 5th really quickly.  I'll give an example that would work for playing in D mixolydian.  Think about the jam from Theme From the Bottom, that's where I transcribed this from anyway; from 12/7/97 show, i think.  

----2----------
------3--------
--------2-1-2-
---------------
---------------
---------------

or can be done on the next string set easily too

------------------
---7-------------
-----7-----------
-------7-6-7----
-----------------
-----------------

With both of these, you need to slide that last arpeggiated note down and up a halfstep.

I'm gonna spend some time this week working on those chops from brother because that is a good one!

Duh, yeah!  I don't know why I didn't think about it.  Guess I was just thinking about similar riffs in his bag of tricks during a guitar solo.  And yeah, it totally works in a major or minor mode.

Good job Reba, sounds like you decoded some of that.  Hey what is that digital sound in your tone or recording equipment?

Well, Im actually in London until the summer and I couldnt bring any of my equipment with me, including my guitar.  Im playing from a cheap guitar I bought in store to play while Im here and then I have a little Vox gadget that I plug into the input jack which you then plug headphones into to give you a lead tone.  To record that video, I just sat my phone between my headphones and my computer and recorded it from my phone.  So the digital sound could be any number of things, but Im not using any pedals, just the little vox gadget (not sure what its called)

I bet it's the gadget.  Coming from a digital rig i can now identify that sound easily.  My dark past. Cool  Hey you gotta do what you can in those situations.
