Gilbert really doesn't sweep a lot if at all. He is an adept string-skipper.

Didn't he used to sweep, in Street Lethal era, and then switched to string skipping?

^Yeah, by the time he joined Mr. Big, he'd pretty much fazed it out completely.

Yeah although jesus can he do EVERYTHING perfectly, and make it look like he's getting his dick sucked while doing it!:p:

I think with PG he just practices so much that he makes it look natural, a lot more people would be better guitarists if they followed his lead.

There is some pretty insane sweeping in the Racer X song Snakebite.

^Eh, I'm pretty sure its string skipping acutally. ;)

The album version yeah, but now he plays a string skipping version instead.

The first song on his solo album 'get out of my yard' (i cant remember the name) has an intense sweeping intro. Some of the best sweeps i've heard him do. And also like some said in the song snakebite.

That's string skipping... Not sweeping. It's also with a human capo (!) and a guitar with three strings tuned to E in octaves.

He can string skip and shred so fast he doesn't need to sweep. He jus looks at the tar and it plays faster than any other guitarist around.

its not extremly difficult ... theres a few patterns to memorize, and then you just need to nail the speed (so hard lol)

Paul Gilbert doesn't talk to me via making silly voices and moving the face of a Halloween mask. Another winning point of his is that he isn't batshit insane.

whoa! i love when i come back to find my threads with a lotta posts

ive been working on the sweeping to scarified, right after the intro, its actually pretty nuts considering he changes from sixteenths to sixtuplets a lot



and now the question that will get a freakin bajllion and a half answers

what are some racer x songs/get out of my yard songs that have string skipping in them, name songs and where the good stuff is, i really REALLY need to work on string skipping, so try to give me stuff that wont make me die the first time i try it
