VERY well said and probably my fave post in this thread so far!!!!

I think a lot of the problem with not only this topic that Marty's brought up, but sweeping in general is:

People are identifying too much with the technique itself: sweeping

and not the musical application that sweeping is applied to, which is:

Arpeggios

A technique, in and of itself, can not be crap or lame. A technique is just a technique.

If guitarists forget the obsession with the damn technique used to play arpeggios and just think about how arpeggios can be used effectively then maybe they'll start thinking of other things instead of walls of BLOOOP, BLOOOOP, BLOOOOP, BLOOOOOP.

Regardless of whether Marty's guilty of a touch of hypocrisy the overall message he is now promoting is solid advice and I'd encourage anyone serious about composing to take it on board and try it out smile.gif

That was a keyboard lick (I think) so it's just an arpeggio - no sweep !
