how do you name a sweep?
the sweep's name is based on the mode it is in or the tonic of it?

for example: this sweep is called B minor(tonic) or E minor(E aeolian mode)

:
E:-------------------------10h14p10---------------------
B:--------------------12----------------12-----------------
G:--------------11---------------------------11------------
D:------12---------------------------------------12--------
A:-14--------------------------------------------------14--
E:------------------------------------------------------------

thnx

learn how chords are named using formulas....it applies to arpeggios as well seeing as its just a broken down chord.

but in the end i always just end up naming mine Steve.

don't say aeolian - aeolian has nothing to do with anything in this thread except my username. guaranteed.

it's a B minor arpeggio.

E:-------------------------10h14p10---------------------
B:--------------------12----------------12-----------------
G:--------------11---------------------------11------------
D:------12---------------------------------------12--------
A:-14--------------------------------------------------14--
E:------------------------------------------------------------


The notes in order:

B, D, F#, B, D, F# (then descends).

In the context of the arpeggio this is:

Root, Minor 3rd, Perfect 5th - which is the formula for a standard minor triad.

And if that doesn't make sense - learn some music theory.
