I"d say my Sweep Picking is probably my weakest technique. I can do it, but nowhere close to where I'd like to be. It's something I'm still trying to work on. Also, compared to someone like Ivan or Daniel, my theory is in need of much improvement. I can Alternate Pick/Economic Pick, pretty well but there is always room for growth smile.gif

Have you been working on any Sweeping lesson from the GMC archive?

Hey! There are many musicians that composed lots of music using only Major & Minor tonalities. It's not basic stuff! smile.gif
Try to dedicate at least 20 minutes every day to learn a new scale or mode, a new chord and maybe a new harmony concept (modes theory, modulation, chords functions, substitution, symmetrical scales, etc). The next step for you should be to learn the major, minor and dominant arpeggios and use them to jam over chord progressions following the chords. The best way to apply and practice dominant arpeggios is over a blues progression. You can contact me if you need more guidelines or suggestions about how to continue exploring this concepts.

I'd have to say string skipping, its something I never practiced. I've been working on String Skipping Etude by Lian's and Shredding the Canon in D by Santiago, both are getting a bit on the easier side even decent speed.

Sweeping as everyone else has said I must include myself here. I was wondering you said circular motions earlier. I always wondered do you sweep as in angle the pick to graze it or do you keep it as standard playing and more or less cut through?

[quote name='Gabriel Leopardi' post='525406' date='Jun 1 2011, 08:16 PM']Hi Nava! The diminished arpeggio or chords appears is the 7th chord when you harmonize the harmonize the harmonic minor scale. It is a symmetric arpeggio build from three minor third intervals. Every note can be considered the root and the positions can be transposed up or down a minor third.

I prepared 3 diminished arpeggios exercises for you (6 strings, Vinnie Moore style and Yngwie Style). Check it![attachment=23683:Diminish...rpeggios.gp5]



Thx Gabriel!
I will check it out right away! And thanks for taking the time to post these exercises smile.gif

Checked it out and its exactly was I was looking for smile.gif If you have more of these pls post smile.gif I like it a lot biggrin.gif
The dim arpeggios is the most fantastic ones IMO.

This is also a technique that I have to work more.. even more the 8th fingers tapping.. there is a cool series by Aleksander that I started to practice some time ago and I have to continue...

Many years ago I used to play this song which I love.. I would like to learn it again!

I'd probably have to say Alternate Picking but anything to do with my right hand technique is pretty bad. Maybe to compensate, I can play legato more in solos. At my max AP sixteenth note speed, I can do triplets or even 32nds legato. I might have to go that route for my style ... to combine low speed picking with faster legato stuff.

Hi JamesT! It's true that our limitations and our strengths define our style. However there are lots of exercises that could help you to develop you alternate picking technique.

Here you have an example:

This is an exercise to train your alternate picking technique on one string over A minor scale. We will use a repetitive pattern very used by neoclassical players like Yngwie Malmsteen and Vinnie Moore. This is the played on string 1, then on the string 2 and finally on the string 3. Please add the remaining strings if you feel comfortable with these ones.
