  • After you got familiar with 3-string sweep picking it's time to move onto some 5-string shapes!These shapes will allow you to create some long crazy runs and you'll also see how to combine them with 3-string shapes.


    Cool thing about sweeps is if you have a melody in your head you can replace one note with the whole arpeggio shape and make a crazy sounding solo. For example, instead of playing the note A in a melody, you can play the whole A minor triad arpeggio.

    So practice this lick part by part and then shred the whole lick! Enjoy!
