Great lesson David!
But why does the video last 53 seconds while the lesson only lasts 38 seconds?
Nice one David! For now, I'll stick to AP a bit more, but maybe later to gather some monster speeds
Cool lesson David!
thanks Dave. working on this.
Speed runs combined with fretboard knowledge, just what I need ! Awesome lesson and explanation, David !
Great lesson David!
The main video needs some shortening at the end..
I'll get that fixed!
wow, you have a very smooth tone, you cant tell when are alternating on one string or sweeping to the other, very impressive
This is the only technique for me that I didn't master, so I think I'll learn it, too
Nice lesson David! Very useful!
Great technique David and a very useful lesson!!
Good workout David!
Good work David!
New look...and great lesson
Great exercises David! Frank Gambale plays everything with this technique.
Nice excercices and patterns.
cool! Gambale thing
Great lesson David. I am not good with economy but it is of course a bonus if you know both
great, very useful and important lesson. Many people focus only on alternate picking, but in my opinion it is important to be able to play both versions, alternate AND economy picking, it just gives you much more options
Excellent exercises man, great job
In today's lesson, we'll discuss economy picking / sweep picking which is a technique that will allow you to reach very fast speeds with minimal right hand movement. The principle of sweep picking is simple: anytime you need to play two consecutive strings, use the same picking direction. If you play an alternate picking run but "break" the alternate pattern when playing two consecutive strings (and use sweep picking) then you get a technique called economy picking.
We'll be using all the seven modes extracted from the key of G Major. In order to make these scales sweepable, we'll use some three notes per string fingerings. Make sure to memorize all the scale patterns before playing this exercise. Start with a slow tempo making sure everything is very clean...
