Alternate Picking and Sweeping

    In this lesson I’ve got two licks to break down that combine alternate and sweep picking. Both use simple, familiar patterns so that we can focus on how to transition between these techniques and nail the mechanics involved.

    Being able to transition seamlessly between different techniques like this makes such a huge difference to your playing, because in the real world you’re never going to do 4 bars of sweeping followed by 4 bars of tapping and so on. Instead, you should be able pick and choose techniques from your arsenal to effortlessly drop into a performance when needed – so I’ll show you exactly how I do this.
