I just came up with this, and I think it fits great in the song I'm working on.
But is it a really hard lick that would take years to get up the speed to or is it something that is reachable for me?

(I can play most of the things I want if I just practice on it, but I would like to know if it would be worth the time or if it's better to come up with a new one.)

Yes, that sounds a little bit crazy. There's actually a new lesson on this kind of sweeping:

I practiced that lesson a bit when it came out, so I know about it, but thanks. smile.gif

And I guess I will just try it then and see where it will go.

Sure, it's absolutely possible. If you think it's something that you'd like to be able to play; then practise it. If you think it's just a cool effect... get a loop pedal, play it, speed it up and pretend to use your teeth to play it.

If he can then I can, it will just take a while I suppose. biggrin.gif

That song was great btw, never liked the singer in Nevermore but when he goes solo I like it.

Nothing is impossible, it just takes more time and hard work.
Thing is, do you really wanna spend too much of your time
on those sweeps at that tempo?
Do they sound or look that great for your taste?
If yes the go for it! smile.gif

I just love his delivery when he reveals the secret, "so, I got this loop pedal ..." which is just as funny as the butt-arpeggio itself.

"How can you resist?" biggrin.gif

It's totally playable, but, remember to practice it with metronome, so you can develop your speed without losing the cleannes of your tone

Sounds a bit like a chromatic riff to me :S Don't know, I wouldn't be able to play that stuff, but I don't really know your level of guitar playing ! biggrin.gif

i knew it reminded me of something and now i got it, it sounds if you use a bit o imagination like some lick of the power rangers solo so i thoght that if your willing to loose one of the triad notes repaet you can easily tap it in that speed just a thoght, cause i know what all the indtructors are saying but just think about doing that switch between them the same speed you hit a single note in the arpeggio
