  • Sweeping is the subject of today's lesson. Sweeping is a difficult technique that requires a lot of discipline and concentration, but if you are patient, it is a very rewarding technique to master.

    The secret of sweeping is to synchronize your right hand with your left hand. What you need to do is to place a finger of your left hand on the desired note at the same time than you are playing that note with your pick. As you do so, the next note needs to be placed on the adjacent string in the same direction as your pick is going.

    In today's lesson, we'll use 2 very usable sweeping shapes. We'll use a Major triad shape and a minor triad shape.

    Work patiently up to a descent speed and enjoy!
