5 String Sweep Picking - Canon
Ok, so in the video below I explain how to play the sweep picking technique. Also below is the tab. 

About the lick:

The lick is a 5 string sweeping technique which uses both major and minor positions. It's a great lick to use if you are new to sweeping and want to get used to the basic different positions. The lick is played in a triplet rhythm.
