  • Hay GMC! This lesson focuses heavily on the sweep picking technique with some legato and string skipping. Besides for technique and learning alot of moveable arpeggio shapes this lesson also focuses on some voice leading to make smoother arpeggio changes from one chord to another.

    We also take a look at how to avoid splitting your pinky finger open and how to re-write a lick quickly if you do! (see lick 5)

    This piece uses minor, major, minor7b5, major 7, sus 4, minor 9, minor7b5add9, major7add9 and majoradd11 arpeggio shapes. The arpeggio's are based around five string shapes in their full, high register and low register forms.

    The piece is based mostly around D minor.

    Tempo is 105 in 4/4.

    Happy sweeping!
