There is a song called Get Outta My Yard by Paul Gilbert, and he plays the intro solo ( http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aYlx5gW90Aw ) with a human capo, on a 3 string guitar with all 3 strings tuned to E.

I see a lot of people playing this as sweep picking ( arpeggios ). It very alike, but my question is how do you know what arpeggio to play instead of the way Paul does it?

The first sequence goes like this:

|E|15-11-8------------------------------15-11-8-----------|
|E|----------15-11-8----------15-11-8----------15-11-8----|
|E|--------------------15-11-8----------------------------|
|x(strings not used)--------------------------------------|
|x--------------------------------------------------------|
|x--------------------------------------------------------|


The notes go - G,D#,C, G,D#,C, etc, ( all strings tuned to E so same notes on each string )

What arpeggio would that be if you wanted to play it sweep picking?

Edit: By just matching the notes to fit sweep picking, I've come up with:


|E|15-11------------------|
|B|------13---------------|
|G|---------12------------|
|D|------------13---------|
|A|---------------15-10---|
|E|-----------------------|


What arpeggio is this lol?

Read the Edit.

I know that it won't give me the sound. I'd rather sweep it vs. tune the top 3 strings on my guitar to E and then tap it haha.
