Hello, first time posting! I have a question, what makes this lick Dm, looking at the circle of fifths wouldn't the relative minor as A be F# and this seems to be the same notes, apologies if I'm missing something really obvious!
You are right! It's not in Dm. There is a major third of D in the lick, not a minor third(F). The backingtrack is also in Am so I think @Brian Haner Sr. Either made a typo or a mistake when typing the description for this lesson. Let me check the other alternate picking lessons, there may be a mix up.

    In this lesson we show you how our favorite alternate picking lick in Dm



    These drills are rad. I have been trying to improve my technique and guitar skills for a couple of years now and the 3up2back drill actually made me feel like I am progressing. It started off feeling like I could never do it and now I am doing it faster and without hassle. Thank you (Synyster) Gates Foundation!
