Hrm,

That was a long time ago...let me see if my memory can dig that far back.


I guess the first real song i learned all the way thru was Heading out to the highway by Judas Priest.

Sweeping, arpeggios, fast AP



I find the best approach to sweep picking is to break the sweeping down to the most basic components and work on each individual thing till you get the technique down.

First, imo you should work on just 3 strings, the highest 3 strings work well for this. What you want to do is first just mute all the strings with your left hand,(we are not playing any notes here we are just raking the strings) just practice sweeping up the 3 highest strings. Pay special attention to the *clicks* of the string make sure they are all uniform i.e. your not making some notes faster than others. Once you can do this start going up than down. As before just get comfortable with sweeping up...then down. Make sure the *clicks* are uniform and clean.

After you have those down, now start from the first exercise, but this time your gonna play notes. For the sake of this exercise place your fingers with index finger on the 9th fret high E string, middle finger on the 10th fret on the B string, and ring finger on the 11th fret on the G string.

Now with the same sweeping motion you did in the first exercise sweep from the G string to the E string in one fluid motion, make sure your using good palm muting technique to squash unwanted string noise, and also make sure as you make the transition from one string to another you lift your finger off the previous note so each note sounds individually (imagine its like when you tap your fingers on a table it is the same kind of motion). Once you can do this so it sounds really good than do, then add the down from the high E string.

Now once you get his going at a good pace and it sounds good, practice it on different frets, and different string groupings. Once your comfortable with this just start adding 1 note at a time and practice it. Honestly once you get it down for 3 strings you can add strings pretty easy.

Now for arpeggios, obviously an arpeggio is just notes of a chord played separately i would suggest you look for lessons on arps here on GMC and look at the different shapes so you can get a good bit of shapes to practice for picking arps...as well as sweeping them.


Now as for fast AP, i hold to the idea of breaking down AP into its most basic form. The biggest problem to overcome with AP is just sync between left and right hand. Lets break it down to the most basic to get your hands working together.

This is also part of my warm up things, what i do is just pick two notes on the same string usually right next to each other. It doesnt really matter which string or what fret, what your going to be doing is a an AP trill. Normally when you trill is just hammer ons and pull offs but for this exercise your gonna AP the trill. Start out at a slow pace and slowly speed up (not like metronome work) your gonna speed up fairly quickly keep paying attention to when you fret the note and pick it it should be in sync. Up down ...up down etc, while playing 2 separate notes. Once you can do that at a fair amount of speed just add 1 note to the mix any 3nps shape will do thats not important at this time. Just work with that one shape and keep AP'ing as quickly as you can without messing up.

Once you can do this start changing the fingering so you get used to syncing up your other fingers with your picking hand.


I think if you just break down each thing you want to acheive to the most basic components most times it will come much easier than say...trying to learn a whole lick first.

My main weakness is muting.Whether its sweep picking or alternate picking,when i switch over to another string I can hear the open string sound.



Good palm muting takes time but i would ask if your hand is just coming off the string, or it rings despite your hand resting there.

The reason i ask is if your still getting string noise even when your hand is resting on the strings its not a muting problem per se but a problem with your picking hand rest position.

If indeed your are having your hand rest on the strings but they are still ringing than you need to adjust your hand position. Move your hand rest position slightly more away from the bridge of the guitar. Even though you muffle the strings real close to the bridge you can't deaden them entirely, you need to "choke up" more on the muting so your closer to the looser part of the strings.

Try to adjust your hand slightly and see if that helps.

A lot of it is relative to what you want to be as a guitarist...

I personally wouldn't say sweeps or AP are a particular weakness (well I never AP always economy) but if you put my technique in the hands of someone who wanted to shred they would feel they had a million miles to go...

My weakness as far as I'm concerned are
1. Sight reading, esp further up the neck than 7th position. But my reading is prob better the 90 percent of the guitarists out there.
2. My Ear, I can get by, but hearing complex chord progressions and melodies with non pentatonic/major scale notes is hard.
3. Application of theory during solos, my theory is pretty good and knowledge of scales and arppegios in CAGED system is ok buthe application of them over a Jazz chord progression is really hard..this is the one that I am currently working on with my teacher...

But yeah sweeping, tapping, AP all could be far better but I'd rather focus my energy into places that would make me a better musicain.



Just as i told Fireball above the thing with sweeping and AP its best to break them down to the most basic components to achieve greater control in those areas

I am not a big sight reader myself, i suppose if someone put a gun to my head i could manage but i have developed my ear more than my ability to sight read.

The ability to apply theory to Jazz chord progressions is difficult to do even for a seasoned guitar player. My best advice is just to learn all you can from people who do it well. Thats why i really enjoy Pedja's video chat sessions. He is really knowledgeable on that subject.

Hearing complex chord progressions is another tricky thing from an ear training perspective. What helped me a great deal was listening to orchestral music. Listening to that kind of music allows your ear to take in all the varied levels of hearing the chord layers. I would suggest trying to find some symphonic type music that you would enjoy, and listening to that. And if possible pick up the score for the things you are listening to so you can see the relationships of the different chord layers and how they are grouped together to make a whole.

QUOTE (slash48 @ Sep 10 2010, 09:10 PM) *
Cool! I'm glad it's started again!
My biggest problem is my picking technique which is limiting me from quickly accessing the lower strings with ease like I need to-E string, A string
I've been playing for 4 or 5 years and my current picking technique is resting my picking hand wrist lightly on the strings above what I am currently playing and picking at a slight angle. When I go from higher strings to say low E, I have no strings above E to rest my hand on so I have to move it to the guitar's body. This puts my hand in a completely new position and my elbow in an awkward position (since I have monkey arms) and makes it nearly impossible to change registers quickly. I know some guitarists anchor their pinky on the body of the guitar but my hands are not big enough for that and I've heard it causes tension in the hand. A new picking technique for the lower register would be great! (I'm sorry for the long ramble, I'm 13 and have more time on my hands to play guitar then I probably should.) tongue.gif



I am not sure i truly understand what your talking about. I am gonna go on the assumption that when your playing stuff on the low E and A string that your hand is completely off the strings. If that's the case i can understand why you have difficulty with string transition.

You shouldn't have your picking hand all together off the strings on the body of the guitar. Now i know probably part of the problem is your hand just isn't big enough to palm mute all the strings because your age. But try to do what i tell you here.

Take the side of your hand and stand it up just above the string saddles on the bridge. (like your hand is a knife and your gonna cut the strings with the side of your hand.) Now put your pick in your hand the way you hold it. Now without moving the position of the hand just lay it down (like closing a book). Now note where your hand is. This should be the position that you play from. Obviously there is a little bit of adjustment up and down as you go up and down the strings, but its not a big motion. Most of the shifting will come from just rotation of the wrist a little bit as you go down.

Now this is the tricky part, when playing full chords you will do 1 of 2 things. Either you will shift your hand towards the bridge even more and strum. (this will sound the chord but it also softens it a little bit), or you will just pick up your hand as you strum the chord and come back to this position.

Playing rock guitar with distortion requires your hand to be resting on the strings in order to silence any string noise which will be much greater with lots of distortion. Generally speaking if your hand is back far enough toward the bridge the low E and A string you can actually just keep resting your hand on the strings and it will still ring a note. If you find your notes on those strings to be too muffled, then adjust your hand so its closer to the bridge of the guitar.

I hope this helps (if i understood your problem if not i will try to better understand your problem and go from there.)

I thought it was time to kinda resurrect this thread. Its been pinned to the top of the board in another sub-category but some time has gone by since people were being helped by this thread.

I assume we have many more new people who would benefit from the topics covered here and also voice their own weaknesses and get questions answered.

So if you please what are your weaknesses (old or new) that you are having trouble with and lets see if we can't get you squared away.

The reason they are so expensive is because they are not guitars in the truest sense of the word.

Yes they have strings and you play them like a normal guitar but they dont have magnetic pickups, imagine having a guitar that has a PODXT built right into the guitar.

Its a purely digital instrument, you have no need for stomp peddles or anything of that sort, because its all built into the guitar.

Its basically a POD, that you play through.

I don't think i have ever heard that term...but. I think what they are talking about are harmonics that don't deaden the orginal note. Its just on top of the original note.

Think about Semi-harmonics as the ones that you play a note, and tap the string at the harmonic point. I think...and i am not completely convinced to be sure. But it is something similar to the harmonics similar to the ones that Randy Rhoads plays on Crazy train for example during the chorus. Where he is fretting the chord but "Clanking" the harmonic at the same time.


I will have to do more research on the term. But i think this is what it is.

As Todd stated its perfectly natural.

Although some people get varying degrees depending on the situation. Myself i always find myself fumbling when in small groups even now. But playing in front of 1000 people i never had a problem with. Actually my playing would be much better for some reason. I dont know what that says about my character, all i know is that is what happens for me.

Hey man.

Your picking isnt as screwed up as you may think. In order to correct it i have a certain insight into the problem. If you look at the 2 lessons i have here you can see that i picked very similar to you.

After those lessons i incurred a nerve problem with my picking arm so i have had to completely change the way i pick the strings.

From the video you posted what i am seeing is not a wrist problem but a pick holding problem. First off you need to place the pick on the very side of your index finger. You start out with your pick closer to the side your index finger but as time goes by your pick is sliding toward the pad of your finger. Secondly and more importantly your thumb is curled back instead of curled forward.

If you place the pick on the side if your index finger, and curl your thumb the other way it will position your pick closer to the 90 degrees that people are talking about. Honestly there are very few players that hold their pick at a perfect 90 degrees to the strings. Most if not all shred type guys hold their pick at varying angles less then 90 degrees. I can only think of 2 players off hand that have the pick at a perfect 90 degree angle....Micheal Angelo Batio, and Paul Gilbert (sometimes)

Anyway what i am getting at here is the fact that its not a wrist problem at all. I think its just a problem of how your holding the pick. The problem i had when i was changing how i picked was pick control, i.e. when i would speed up my pick was spinning out of my fingers. The solution was to lighten how hard i was picking. When picking as you do in this vid i felt much more control of the pick spin cause i could grip it tighter. When making the transition to the other way you will find its kinda backwards. I think the reason for this is most of the time playing guitar its more downstroke then upstroke. Holding the pick the way you are its harder to keep the pick from spinning on alot of upstroke picking. Holding it the other way is going to be harder to control on the downstrokes. Its going to take a few weeks to get comfortable with even holding it differently but as you go along your going to adjust your pick stroke length and attack to facilitate.

Basically a Misarchist is a person who doesnt believe in authority of anyform. Although they see Government as inherantly evil, although necessary. They dont go as far as an anarchist which will fight for no government, doing anything that is necessary to bring down said government.

A Misarchist will invariably see anarchists as a violent form of authority which goes against their principles.

Thanks Daniel! Great lesson. Let me go back and work on it with your suggestions. I've already started on another lesson but I will now go back and see if I can clean that up. It seemed to me that in the Lynch lesson there were some odd timing things in the piece. Like the first chord(at :11) didn't seem to start on 1...but rather on the up beat 'and'. Am I correct?

Let me also ask that you do a few more lessons in the style of Lynch because....
1-You are really good at his style
2-There isn't enough Lynch material on the site considering his stature and following within his respective genre.

Timing is tough for me and I'm trying to get better at it more by feel...by just playing a lot to songs and backing tracks rather than analyzing it so much and making it an academic exercise. This takes the fun out of it for me by making it a science.


Yes there are several odd timings in this. Actually there is alot of up beat starts to phrases in this. At least you are aware of it. Its part of the reason i tagged the lesson as a difficulty rating of 6 instead of lower.

Although Lynch does do things like this from time to time, the truth is its my own style coming through. Its one of those things that you come to realize about your own playing when you start scoring and recording your own stuff you realize that there is more to it than you think


I am sure as you get better during your guitar journey here you will hear and feel the rhythms more, thats a part of playing. Its like learning to run, your crawling...then a couple steps then walking than running. Once you get to this point its second nature you dont have to pay attention to it. So just learn good habits now for counting out rhythms. And no need to kill yourself to make it perfect right now, keep learning stuff maybe it will help to get a fresh perspective on it in a couple of weeks.

Hey Shattered,

Great improvement from the last take smile.gif

Let me see if i can help you a bit with some problems you are having.

Lets first address the timing issues.

In the first section of the solo part the first lick is correct timing. The problem is going into the little bit at :35 your rushing into that section your actually playing it at the right speed but your starting on the wrong part of the measure. If it helps you think of it this way, after the triplet note lick after you stop the note on the 7th fret of the D string, either internally. Or out loud just say "One" and then start the next section i know its a rather odd timing, think of it as a hiccup between the two licks. But like i said if it helps just say "One" then go. Most of the timing issues you have shortly after that section is because you jumped the gun on that part and the ending of that phrase loop is not falling where it should.


Another timing issue is at :50 the lick has the same triplet gallop as the very first lick of the solo part. After this section that uses the diminished shape to the double stop bend. Again after you stop the end note of the diminished pause for one count then do the double stop. The other thing is make the notes of the double stop ring a little bit more before bending up and make the bend up is slower.

Ok, the next section after the double stop bend, again we here have pauses that your rushing just a little bit. Just like in the other sections i think if you out loud or internally count 1 before each note, so it would be like

Double stop "One
Note (stop) "One"
Note (stop) "one"

i hope i am not confusing you.

Your getting better, if you have any issues about the solo section that you need help with PM me or post here i will help where i can.

I always practice in both ways, some days I sit down, on other days I stand up, like this I am prepared for everything

Hehe No doubt. There are a lot of sound engineer's over the years that i would like to box their ears. I can remember so many nights playing live that the sound was so bad even when the equipment was working perfectly. And you stare at the audience with a dumb look on your face, all the while thinking to yourself "This guy went to school for this? He would have been better off spending that money for a used car or something."

But music is just like anything you gotta take the good with the bad, and hope that the good outweighs it.

Anyway you did great regardless Kaz Kudos to you!

I am not exactly sure how to do it in Reaper, but there should be a setting for sample size. When you start using alot of vsti's and plugins you need a larger sample size. Generally the default is for 512 samples, if your computer isnt up to the task of doing real time then you need to increase the sample size to like 768, or whatever the next level of sample size is in reaper.

It should be in whatever reaper uses for audio setup. Just increase the sample size until the freezing and hiccups go away in increments
