sweeping/raking takes time and practice to do.

I gave my brother a hand job. It was weird at first. It was weirder after.

its a very advanced technique, how long have you been playing

its basically sweeping from what ive heard of...ive also heard of them being the same thing exactly - ug video

its not advanced in the slightest. Theres 2 ways of doing it i think. bar the 12th fret with your index finger and play as many strings as you think sounds good but mute it with your picking hand. Or you can hover above the 12th fret with your index finger and actually play the notes which sound then sound dull.

I hope that makes sense. Obviously i was saying 12th fret as thats the fret played in living on a prayer

Raking IS WHEN YOU.....IF YOU HAVE A LES PAUL OR A GUITAR WHERE THERE IS A BRIDGE AT THE BOTTOM OF YOUR GUITAR.....THOSE STRINGS YOU DONT USE..... YOU HIT THEM THATS A RAKE....ZAKK WYLDE DOES IT ALOT LIKE IN SUPERTERRORIZER AND WORLD OF TROUBLE.....YEP

THATS ONE KIND OF RAKE THERE COULD B OTHERS

IF YOU DONT HAVE A BRIDGE THINGY ON THE BOTTOM OF YOUR GUITAR THEN YOU CANT DO IT THIS WAY.....YOU CANT USE THE TOP BY THE NECK TO FAR AWAY... BOTTOM ONLY

THATS A RAKE
