Shred Guitar Lesson on Sweep Picking Lick -- Cool Sweep Picking Lick in G Minor Hey, guys. How’s it going? This is Gaby Soule with guitarcontrol.com and today I want to show you the sweep picking lick in the key of D minor. So let’s break it down in pieces and check out how it works. It starts here in the 1st string at the high E on the 17th fret. It’s a pull-off from the 17th to the 13th fret. Now, on the 2nd string in the 15th fret, and in the 3rd string, it’s a pull-off from the 17th to the 14th fret. All together. I’m sweeping the 2nd and 3rd string upstrokes. Now you repeat that same pattern again now from the 2nd to the 4th string. That would be like this. That is pull-off from the 17th fret to the 13th fret of the 2nd string. Now the 3rd string in the 15th fret and in the 4th string, a pull-off from the 17th to the 14th. Now I’m sweeping the 3rd and 4th string with upstrokes. Up, up. All together so far. Now I slide my 1st finger to the 12th fret and from there what I do is this. I play the 12th fret and the 15th fret of the 4th string with a hammer-on after I slide. From there I do a hammer-on and now this is all sweeping again, but this time these are downstrokes. This is 1st string 14th fret; 2nd string 13th fret; and 1st string 12th fret. Now what I do is I play a last note here in this arpeggio which would be in the 15th fret of the 1st string of the high E and I play it with an upstroke. What I’m doing here is I do this hammer-on thing on the 4th string. Now down, down, down and an up here. Now I do a pull-off. Hammer, down, down, down, up and pull-off to the 12th fret. Now I go back to the 2nd string and the 13th fret. Again, on the 3rd string it’s a pull-off again from the 14th to the 12th. Now, from the 2nd to the 4th string there’s an arpeggio again. This time it goes from the 15th to the 12th to the 11th fret and pull-off. Third string now in the 14th fret and 4th string from the 15th to the 12th fret. This arpeggio, I played those five notes. I play them descending first and ascending, again, and one last time just ending. So it goes descending, ascending and descending again. Descending, ascending and descending again and the last note is here. I end it with a C. So thank you very much. That is the lick. I hope you liked it and remember that you can get the tabs by clicking in the video description below. Thank you very much for watching and I’ll see you next time. Bye.
