Hey Gabe,

I was just watching one of your videos that had 3 string sweeping in it and was wondering, when you sweep do you place your pinky across the strings to mute? becuase it didnt look like you were moving your hand around. if so is it easier or does it mute the strings better? And how long did it take you to sweep at a good speed?

Hi nick! yes, I use my pinky and also my righ hand fingers to mut ethe strin that I'm not playing.
I think that it took me one year to play the 2, 3 and 5 strings sweeps at a fast tempo.
