Posted by Niels Vejlyt on Wednesday, December 21, 2016, In : Sweep Picking Tapping

Technique
As you can see I combine Tapping using two fingers and in this example I use the long finger and the Little finger, this helps me easily go into the Sweep picking techniqu...

Fancy Arpeggios

Posted by Niels Vejlyt on Friday, August 14, 2015, In : Sweep Picking Tapping 


About
This is a C Major slash A minor Sweep picking, Tapping, Legato and sliding Arpeggios. It's really cool sounding and you can work it into your own playing from the second position of the Major scale, this means that when you are improvising and soloing and you at one point reach the second Scale position and also the G string you can break into this lick. Of course this is in the key of C but it will benefit you to the extreme if you try to use it in other keys, you could skip the 24th ...

Posted by Niels Vejlyt on Monday, May 4, 2015, In : Sweep Picking Tapping

Im not saying that no one else was doing this in the world, b...

Sweep picking advanced Tapping

Posted by Niels Vejlyt on Wednesday, April 1, 2015, In : Sweep Picking Tapping 


About
Rightyho !! here is once again one of those crazy ass sweep picking triad arpeggios combined with tapping. And in this one I obviously do the sweep picking with the thumb and index finger which then gives me the possibility to tap with the long finger, ring finger and little finger. I want to tell you that it is a good attitude to have towards anything you want to learn that you can easily reach the goal that you have set for yourself but its also important to know that - that being said...

Extreme Sweep picking Tapping plus slides

Posted by Niels Vejlyt on Thursday, March 26, 2015, In : Sweep Picking Tapping 


About
Here is a very sweet sounding lick in E minor using all three of the minor inversion of the minor triads using a variety of five and six strings. Notice the first inversion might be a little uncommon in the fingering, if thats the case for you, play the root note E as the first note on the A string using the index finger hammering on to the little finger instead. This lick also takes up quite a bit of the fretboard so make sure you are in a key where there's enough space on the fret boar...

Harmonic minor Sweep picking Tapping advanced

Posted by Niels Vejlyt on Monday, March 23, 2015, In : Sweep Picking Tapping 


About
This lick is really cool and I have used it quite a lot on my recordings like in Infinity Overture: The Infinite Overture pt.1 and my solo album Sthenic. Its a combination of a minor sweep picking triad and a lot of notes added from the Harmonic minor scale with tapping with three fingers on the right hand 

Technique
One element that to some degree can make a very advanced lick like this seem a little easier is the hammer on´s I do as a help to make the shift between the sweep picking tec...

Sweep Picking Exotic Arpeggio 3

This arpeggio is composed from the first position of the Melodic minor and gets that cool kind of whole tone scale sound between the fourth the fifth, natural sixth and raised seventh. Again you have to work on using three fingers from the picking hand for tapping. Good luck
