Untitled from November 2000 (Sweeping Licks)

Sweeping isn’t just for janitors now is it? Hell No! This month I have some more good sweep stuff for you all. This first shape is a really nice 4 string arpeggio I like playing with. Its in B major.

---------------------------------------------
---------------------------------------------
-------8h11p8--------------------------------
------9------9-------------------------------
-----9--------9------------------------------
-7h11----------11p7--------------------------

Here is the minor version:

---------------------------------------------
---------------------------------------------
-------7h11p7--------------------------------
------9------9-------------------------------
-----9--------9------------------------------
-7h10----------10p7--------------------------

Easy right! Time to up the ante. Chew on this. A mix of sweeping and string skipping:

-----------7h11p7----------------------------
---------------------------------------------
-------8h11------11p8------------------------
------9--------------9-----------------------
-----9----------------9----------------------
-7h11------------------11p7------------------

*Yawn*……. Ok, OK! Let me guess, piece of cake right? Now lets see what you really got………..take this:

--------------------7h11p7--7---------7-----------
--------------------------------------------------
-------8h11p8---8h11------11-11p8-8h11-11p8-------
------9------9-9-----------------9---------9------
-----9--------9-----------------------------9-----
-7h11----------------------------------------11p7-

Got all that? WHAT! NOT HARD ENOUGH,,,,,,,,,,ok, DO I have to go all out or something? Ok, well…try this! Played all 16th notes at 305 bpm.

-----------12h22p6----------------------------
---------19-------5---------------------------
--------3----------1--------------------------
-------8------------13------------------------
-----15---------------6-----------------------
-1h22------------------4----------------------

Hahahah, no just kidding! :0) Hope you had fun with my column. Shred on and take care,
