  • Sweeping Basics

    by David Wallimann

    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.
