GMC VIDEO CHAT LESSON #8 – RIGHT HAND V – SWEEP PICKING (2 Strings)
Hello guys!! In this lesson we will start working on a new right hand technique called Sweep Picking that is very used in rock, metal and fusion.
Sweep picking is a technique that consists in crossing strings with a sweep motion. This means that you cross strings with down strokes when you are ascending and with upstrokes when you are descending. In this first lesson we we will talk about 2 strings sweeps, I will show you the motion and will give you 11 exercises to train this technique.
