Hi,


As sweep picking seemed to be one of the most popular techniques to practice in our previous poll in February (the poll thread is here: https://www.guitarmasterclass.net/guitar_fo...howtopic=47816), I thought I post a new arpeggio exercise.

You can watch it here, and this video contains the TABs and the slow version too.


As you can see, I use 2-string version sweeps at the beginning. This is a cool way to create interesting sounds on only 2 adjacent strings. The sweep movement is the same here as well, regardless of the number of strings used.


This lick is an example for creating an arpeggio combination within a relatively narrow segment of the guitar neck. That way, the lick won't sound like a "neoclassical arpeggio festival", and therefore it is suited for wider range of applications, and in normal "non-guitar hero" settings. Basically, it can be built in into any rock solo.


As always, any questions or ideas/suggestions are welcomed!

Thanks so much, I appreciate it a lot!

Well, there are some exciting plans, but in the moment these plans are top secret, just like the ingredients of Coca-cola wink.gif

As far as I know the secret ingredients have been revealed smile.gif

Anyways! Great lesson, but I'll stick to rhythm for now, definitely shouldn't start to work on all this awesome non-sense before I got a solid control of rhythmic playing / riffs laugh.gif & also what a great looking guitar you got there biggrin.gif

I didn't know that smile.gif I'll look it up then and create my own Shred-Cola! biggrin.gif

OK, solid and tight rhythms go first! Btw, you can practice more than one technique at the same time, if you can divide your practice time - that way this varied practicing can be even more fun. And of course, at each technique you can focus on the solid playing, so all the different practices sum up and create an overal solid technique.


Yes, I love this guitar, he is so comfortable, and sometimes I'm suspecting he can read my thoughts smile.gif
