Today we are going to take a look at Sweep Picking, yeah. Always wanted
to play those die hard arpeggios from Yngwie Malmsteen and Paul Gilbert ?
Here is my guide that helped me to get those 6 string monster arpeggios :
- The first thing that you need to remember is patience and starting out really slow, First
slow it down and if you feel you can play it 5 times clean it is time to speed it up.
-Now we need some excercise to do, first lets take a look at a website that guided me when I was sweep picking the first time : http://www.insaneguitar.com/mc/sweeping.html
This site is really a good source for starters. Just start with the 3 string ones and build it up.
- If you have managed to do some 3 strings and maybe 4 strings it's time to make it interesting with a song.
for example a good song is the intro of "hangar 18" by Megadeth. Also try the big sweep in the middle of "Canon Rock" by Jerry C
-By the time you've reached this step you allready have practiced and can go out to grab some kick ass guitarpart with arpeggios, slow it down with guitarpro and play with it, remember when you practice to do it clean so not with the heavy black satanic metal preset on your amp.
Questions and help can be posted here, When I find new information on the web about Sweep picking, I will make sure to post it in here ;)
