Sweep Picking/Tapping I
from Expanding Technical Skills III
by Dave Martone
So, you want to learn some crazy techniques and put them together, I see. Good for you! These exercises are not easy and you need to have a pretty good handle on sweeping before you can even do these (check out this month's Sweep Picking on Seven-String Guitar
and November's Sweep Picking lesson
for a start). We will take a look at three crazy sweep tap licks in A minor -- tapping with the pick instead of the finger, another A minor 9th using the finger with a bend, and a crazy one in B minor with a string jump tap at the end. Pure craziness lies ahead, so use extreme caution when entering the world where few have gone before. Launch the lesson.
