Why am i asking - not to get another "they are great" - but to actually know if they are areally of some use or you are jsut saying that because every now and than some member pops up who actually can+t see any use in those lessons - not only sweeping but also legato or something, and when it happens i am confused and don't get it: "Is it really that bad or you just don't read the explanation?"


I mean if 300 members actually managed to start sweeping using those lessons it means the lesson is fine.

I want to help fgdvir to get going with it. maybe you should just start from the start and read it carefully and watch the vids, and try it slowly?

Uhh,thanks Matt,that IS relief wink.gif

Pavel,I'm also sure that your sweep lessons are fine.
Maybe our friend just needs to read more about sweeping in general.
And to try it slow first of course. smile.gif

Ffgdvir , sweeping is not a overnight process. Practice solves everything and if you invest more time and dedicate your self to Pavel ( And Muris tongue.gif ) sweeping lessons, you will do just fine. Just practice and dont get upset smile.gif Look at me I still suck at sweeping but im still happy smile.gif biggrin.gif tongue.gif

there. To master sweeping you gotta be conscious that its not an overnight process, like ESJ said. I think Pavel's sweeping lessons are great. I thought they could be better when i was starting sweeping, but after a lot of time of research and practice of sweeping, i found out that Pavel couldnt have demonstrated the sweeping process better! Its just a matter of practicing!! smile.gif

I started the sweeping basics one the other day, I think I'm making good progress, it was very helpful. smile.gif

- It did run it through step by step as well, there was clear explanation of both the top and bottom hand movements and a run to start off with. tongue.gif

...and it should be mentioned because it's very effective! I still like to use it as part of my sweep-picking warmup.

I havent really practice Pavels or Muris sweeping lessons , but I watched them and I think those lesson are a must if one wants to learn sweeping. So after im finished with alternate picking lessons Ill be on my way to Pavel and Muris sweeping lessons.

Sweeping is a really demanding technique. You'll have to spend a lot of time before being able to play it comfortably. Don't worry - include it into your daily practicing routine and you'll soon see some improvement.

yeah, that way we can also correct your mistakes, and that will help alot since you're starting with the technique. Imagine correcting mistakes after having praticed them 3 hours a day for 1 year!!! wink.gif

Can we post our videos here as well? instead of making hundreds of rate my sweeps threads? I think I just need a specific place in which we can post them.

Pavel im going to be frank here. I found your alt picking, sweep and legato series amazing. They are 101 quality (just not posted in that category). You actually VERBALLY EXPLAIN how to do the technique, cover the do's and donts of the techniques and give us a crash course to quickly understand the technique.

The problem i find with a lot of TECHNIQUE lessons is that they dont explain how to play or use the technique. It like just reading a tab and practicing while watching the person quickly and slowly play it (hard to notice what exactly to do). I do understand for a lot of lessons you just need to practice but for some of the technique lessons i fell its mandatory to cover the dos and donts so the concept would stay in our head even if we saw it in another lesson previously.

Let me give you some examples of rules you mentioned which i found REALLY helpfull:
-Always pick at an angle when speed picking
-Only use your wrist to pick (not elbows) or it could lead to injury
-Mute the string upper and lower string of the one your playing legato on (and you explain which fingers to use)
-When sweeping only one finger should be on the fretboard

These are really small things but they really help us in quickly understanding the technique without doing mistakes. Many other instructors cover what to do but not all and i really fell its important to do this.

Im not whining here, GMC is really great and has really helped everyone improve like no other lessons offer due to many reasons (mainly the diversity of instructors playing styles), but id just like to recommend a suggestion which i felt i had to bring notice about for a while. These are just small things, that if fixed could make this site even better for newcomers and people attempting a new lesson.
