In this course we'll study an excerpt of an old song of mine that should help you to improve your sweep picking technique; and also may give you some cool musical ideas.
There are two main parts, the first one with 3 string arpeggios and the last part with 2 string arpeggios, including some scale lines as well.
Here are the arpeggios we'll use: (More used shapes)
Minor arpeggios are built by a Root, minor 3rd and a perfect 5th.
Major arpeggios are built by a Root, major 3rd and a perfect 5th.
Dominant 7th Arpeggios
Dominant 7th arpeggios are built by a Root, major 3rd, perfect 5th and a minor 7th.
Diminished triads are built by a Root, minor 3rd and a diminished 5th.
Sus4 or Suspended Chords
Suspended 4 arpeggios are built by a Root, a perfect 4th and 5th.
(Notice that in this exercise we will be using only the first 3 strings of these arpeggios).
Ok, let's watch the entire lick at normal speed:
So now let´s learn the etude part by part. Each video has 3 parts, open general angle, then close up of fretboard and picking hand.
Here's part 1:
