Sweep Picking For Beginners

Sweep picking is an incredibly fun skill that a lot of intermediate players really struggle to learn.

After teaching for several years, I finally figured out why this was, and after experimenting with my own playing and teaching my students, I came up with a set of exercises that are incredibly effective at teaching sweep picking.

I put them together into this course, an introduction to sweep picking, which has:

  • Explanations of the key mechanics involved in the technique
  • Video demonstrations of key exercises
  • Work book with exercises to train your new sweep picking skills using a variety of arpeggios and harmonic progressions.
