Hi shredders....

Do you guys know any songs that could probably express "the perfection of sweep picking at its highest majestic level"

You know songs on the level of Serrana (to bad there ain't no album guitar version of it)

I'm currently into sweep picking, and need lots of hearing material to inspire new sweep licks.........

I'm currently listening to Altitudes by Jason Becker, and better SP song ??
Tone is all ...... well probably 75%, in your fingers.

Speed Metal Symphony if you haven't heard it. The beginning is all Am sweeping by Jason and the end is a Cmaj sweep i coined it the "jackpot sound" 'cause it sounds like a slot machine when you win

Seriously, give it a listen. It's crazy!
Dear God, do you actually answer prayers?

Yes, but only in a way indistinguishable from random luck or the result of your own efforts.

why does Paul Gilbert string skip everything? because he's better then you!

off the top of my head the sweeping in the solo to kissing the shadows by children of bodom is quite cool.

Necrophagist- Foul Body Autopsy or Fermented Offal Discharge.

Nevermore- The Psalm Of Lydia or This Godless Endeavor.


Intense shit right there my man.
Known.
Some.
Call.
Is.
Air.
Am?

Incoherent - yes.
Without meaning - I'm afraid not.

"Known some call is air am."
Which is to say-

"I am not what I used to be"

paul stringskips everything to get that chunkie sound it gives your playing. It makes your playing more defined.


Actually Paul Gilbert has said on several occaisions that he's not really that good at sweeping, on the turnarounds he claims his timing is a bit suspect so he prefers to string skip things 'cos that way it'll be in time better.
#35
He's actually said both.

"Why does PG string skip everything? Because he's better than joo."

Intro of Smoke and Mirrors—Symphony X

Hey guys! I just started playing electric guitar should I get a Gabson Lay Pall or a Femdor Startokaster. I like the picks on the gabsons but i like how sweet femdors look. Beforre i get a gabson what company makes them?
#38
Chunkier sound in String Skipping ??

You mean, the chunk gained by the attack by the pick on each note ??

Heck, why not use a Compressor instead ??
