I know, without a doubt, this course will help you break free from the tyranny of the pick!!! This opening section covers the most fundamental exercises of all, the scales. Mastering these is essential and helps strengthen crossing over the strings in both direction as 2-string sweeps. I demonstrate the main positions for both Major and Minor Pentatonic scales up and down the fret board in the key of A. These pentatonic shapes are very unusual and quite difficult to play evenly because of the wide spacing of the notes on certain strings but again, these are an essential element of mastering the Sweep Picking Technique and exhilarating to play once you get them up to higher tempos.!

I am going to try to buy Basic Training to see if it is as great as the others are, which it most likely is. Not sure if they deliver to Japan or not. I can play much much quicker while only using a fraction of the physical effort that is needed for strict alternate picking. I think Economy picking is the best way But Gambale is very rigid with it, sticking to the up 3 up 3 up 2 down 3 type of Ideas.

My fingers feel really really weird. The main idea of it is 3 nps and 4 nps pentatonic ideas. A very useful approach. E string 8 10 12 A 8 10 12 D 9 10 12 G 9 10 12 B 10 12 13 e 10 12 13 For a turn around, e 10 12 13 12 10 Then go backwards from before.

Every time you sweep from one string to the next your picking hand has to suddenly slow to half the speed of your regular alternating strokes. The method is revolutionary but makes perfect sense.
