In this lesson we will try with our advanced minor chord arpeggio sweep picking technique along with a backing track.

  • A minor (i) for 2 measures
  • D minor (iv) for 2 measures
  • A minor (i) for 2 measures
  • E minor (v) for 2 measures
  • Repeat

    I show several different ways to approach the pattern. Just once all the way up, and then later both up and down. In general I try to aim at hitting the lowest and highest notes of the arpeggio on downbeats. p> Finally, at the end of this lesson I offer advice and encouragement in learning this advanced technique.

    Hopefully these ideas will give a better understanding of sweeping technique: what it is, how to do it and how to use it. If you are interested in other lessons on sweeping, try these:
