16th notes and 16th note triplets
Smells like Paul Gilbert
In this exercise you'll practice some legato on the upper three strings with three cool licks!
The cool thing in the final lick is the switching from 16th notes to 16th note triplets. Go slower at first so the switch doesn't kill you.

Check out the scale diagram. You'll only be playing on the top three strings though:
The first lick is just to get you started. We'll build the next two licks from this one:
The second lick adds some more legato noodling on the first string:
And the final lick is where the fun starts. After the first lick you play two 16th note triplets (or one sextuplet, if you will). Once you get it up to speed it sounds amazing. Don't forget - you have to cram six notes into one beat!
