Betcha Can't Play This: Luis Carlos Maldonado's Add9 Roller Coaster

This is an alternate-picking run based on an add9 arpeggio shape on the top three strings that’s moved up and down the neck to four different positions and tonal centers, with a slight variation in bar 2. It begins in E, moves down to C with a little twist—more on that in a moment—then up to D and finally A.
