This is really excellent Muris - sweeping newbies will gain alot thanks to the structure of your lesson. It's a great idea to start with the simplest shapes. Thanks!
wooooo awesome! The end is crazy !
Thanks Muris:) just what I needed to improve my sweeping:D
That's great Muris! I love the doubled part. Great!
Great lesson. This will definitely help my sweeping!
damn! Cool lesson! I never learned sweep picking and I was doing for the first time after using this lesson!
I had problems though. You sweep up also, correct? Once I got to the 170 bmp my left hand guy was like "uhhhhhh?"
oh, I was playing quartner notes by the way, at that tempo, not sixteenth notes lol
this really helps
Thanks Muris! It's great that I can finally start sweeping!
Terrific Muris!!! Great lesson. Right in time for me to incorporate sweeps in to my practice routine. In your opinion, how much time should I devote to this per day? Right now, my fastest is your slowest (clean that is). My goal is to be at 160 in about a year.
Thanks guys,glad you find this one nice for practicing!
Boris,it's really hard to say,the more the better...
Of course it depends of your free time etc but try to practice as much as possible.
Sweeping really might be tricky if you're new to it,
not saying that this lesson is total monster tho.
Awesome lesson Muris!!And yes i did start smiling as soon as i saw this lesson.Thanks
Im lovin this lesson, awesome job!
I think Im actually gonna try to take on sweeping!!
Amazing structure Muris, just goes amazingly well!
Very very cool. And Very creative.
Say, can I hire some other people to learn some of these for me since there is just no way to do them all :-)
This is just great, There is no other way to put it!
Jason,why not trying one by time?
Start with 2 string shapes,it's sort of economy picking actually.
Then try 3 strings shapes,after that it's all the same,almost.
Is it alright if you just play one note at the end of the arpegio, than repeating them? it kinda confuses me.
Those are actually 2 arpeggio shapes,one ends on the note where another starts.
As long as you sweep it,you're doing fine.
As the matter of fact,I putted licks like that to SPLIT rhythmic parts
and to avoid common sweeping up and down and up and down etc.
Hi Muris, it`s a exellent lesson to learn sweeping, thanks so much.
Hi Muris. Very good lesson (as usual)!! You make lessons too fast and too good, i cannot catch up with the practicing all of them :-P!! Just kidding! keep up the good work man
I actually meant there are some many cool lessons on GMC to learn. It was a joke LOL
yeah, excelent patterns Muris !!!! great sweeps
Just curious Muris, what kind of guitar is the one you used in this lesson?
It's my new custom model from MK Guitars,Bosnia.
great lesson, simplified sweep picking for me thats for sure
very melodic and harmonic! type of beat that can make u think and nearly cry cos it is so beautiful in sound and also how it works with ur mind and body!
altogether it rocks!
been trying this one for ages and im nearly there.didn't know how to sweep at all before this.thanks
You're more then welcome!!
Try to record a video clip of you playing it,
post it somewhere in my sub-board so I could give you an advice or similar,if needed.
is it ok to use downstroke, hammer on and pull of on the E string notes, as opposed to downstroke, upstroke and pull off as you write it there?
Only at first 2string sweep.. it feels more comfortable to me to not pick the E string with upstroke => not skip the string with the pick on that downstroke..
Of course you can play it without upstroke on high E using hammer-on instead.
But the idea is to use upstroke,yeah.
NICE LESSON MURIS!!!!
GREAT JOB AND SOUNDS!!!!
this is so good.
i just remembered about this one..
lol very nice man !
great lesson man, helping alot with my newb sweepz
Awesome Lesson man, Im practicing it right now!!!
sweet lesson ^^ lets see if i can get that sweepin workin ^^
thanks mr Varajic.
Wow, sweep-picking is one thing I haven't got into yet, this lessons seems very helpful ! Very nicely played !
Glad you like it,
feel free to ask if I can help somehow.
Just found this and now I can easily say that my greatest weakness; sweep-picking is realy improving I just can't thank you enough for this. [hails and kneels down]
You're very welcome, glad it helps.
Wow, great lesson, i never could sweep before but this lesson finally did it for me! i dont know how to thank you mate but Thanks alot!!!
Pleased to hear about your progress, well done!!
This lesson is great! I really hope to improve my sweep picking with this.
Which do you think, Mr. Varajic, is more effective way of training? To learn one part of the solo and train it until it goes "perfectly", or to get some kind of a grip of the whole solo and THEN perfect it?
Glad you liked it Kristian.
Human being is capable of learning things in many ways
and as your skills become better it'll be quite relative which way you choose, you'll see.
But since this lesson is pretty much advanced one maybe it could be too much
to learn one single arpeggio or part of the lesson and practice it
until it goes "perfect", it might take you too long imo.
I would rather learn all shapes somehow and play it VERY slowly, nice and clean,
along with everything else that you practice of course.
That way you'll become familiar with different chord shapes,
you'll upgrade your fretboard knowledge etc.
Speed will come naturally after a while, do not push it,
try to play everything clean and accurate and result WILL come, don't worry.
You should also try THIS lesson for even more basic sweep patterns.
Whoa, thanks, Mr. Varajic! That sounds like something I actually had in mind. I have some kind of an idea of how it's supposed to be done, and I think that practising these licks slowly are just what I need right now.
I also feel that this is actually quite advanced stuff, but why is it only solo with difficulty "3"?
That link gave me this very same lesson here. :?
Well, rating lessons is quite hard.
If you are new to sweep picking than this lesson is far more than 3, I agree.
But if we look at it in real "sweep world" than it can't be rated more than 3,
there are faaaar more harder things to do with sweep and we have scores 1-10.
Ohhh, I made a mistake from the start,
I thought you were working on THIS lesson.
Oh my god, I wouldn't even dare to try those incredible sweeps. O_o This is just awesome: everywhere I look in the fretboard I see tons of techniques, each of which is a complete world full of things to learn. Every time I see I've learnt something, something new pops out and I just notice how much I still have to go. I love that feeling.
But yeah, I'll keep on going nice and calm. After some time, I'll see if I can take a video (I don't have access to good video cameras so I'm not sure about the quality) and post it somewhere.
Yeah, we can learn forever and that's the best feel indeed.
About camera, you can use photo camera with video mode as well,
it doesn't have to be "real" camera like these new HD models etc.
thank a lot, by the moment just I add in my bookmarks but I know that I will need it later. Thanks carnal.
Not a problem, let me know if you need some help with it.
really useful combination of minor and major shapes
Do you palm mute the strings with your right hand?
This lesson is definitely not difficulty level 3! I want to see your takes of it at full speed (160 bpm) if you don't agree with me
The thrird group 3 notes (starting in 12 1st string) is upstroke and the 2nd string also upstroke?
Thankd Gabriel, i was refernig to sec 8. I review the video 2 as you suggested and i got the answer.up,down,down.
Muris! This is what I was looking for!
Great Lesson!! Thank you so much!
