Turnaround Lick

This week we're focused on the basic, recurring turnaround lick. This lick resurfaces a few times, with a couple variations, throughout the song. It's probably the only semi-tricky portion of this piece but it's really cool. Once you get it down you're going to find all kinds of uses for it.
