Advanced Sweep Picking Tapping

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

About Scales
This lesson is all about four note Arpeggios and in this case the A Major seven and the E Dominant seven, as I explain in the video you can easily incorporate it into the A major scale or of course the Major scale in general, start it from the first step of the Major scale, regarding the technical stuff

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 

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 ...

Jazz Shred Arpeggios

Posted by Niels Vejlyt on Monday, July 6, 2015, In : music theory 


In this lesson we are going through a standard Jazz chord movement which is the II-V-I or 2-5-1 movement. Its often or was often used as a method as a tonal "breakthrough" to go into the next II-V-I or II-V movement in the next key. But here we will just use it as a Super imposing tool. Which we will "act" as if we play over the particular chord(which I actually do in the video) but we can easily use it over just one chord which will then be the Super imposing. But to get a deeper under...

Sweep picking - Tapping - Cross hands technique

Posted by Niels Vejlyt on Sunday, April 5, 2015, In : stunt guitar 

Hey hey ! here is the first new blog post since my old website was hacked and destroyed. As you may know this is the new url where things are going down from now on. I wanted to congratulate that all the old blog posts are up and running again and now with this latest addition to the blog posts you'll get a very short and sweet lick addressing both Sweep picking tapping and my crazy Cross hand technique. Obviously this is not something that is easy to use in improvising and therefore I ...

Extreme Tapping Arpeggios combined with Guitar Scales

Posted by Niels Vejlyt on Thursday, April 2, 2015, In : extreme tapping 

This lick is one of my trademarks and what I normally call Extreme Tapping. Its a killer pattern that sounds really extreme once you got the technique down. One of the first things regarding this technique that most people find a little weird is something like starting a lick out with a hammer on which can feel a little awkward in the beginning. The nex thing is to make the string skipping lose the possible breaks between the notes and obviously also the string noise that can happen when...

Sweep picking advanced Tapping

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

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...

Sweep picking 8 finger tapping

Posted by Niels Vejlyt on Friday, March 27, 2015, In : sweep picking 8 finger tapping 

Merry Christmas everyone, heres my little Christmas present for you, it's a Sweep picking 8 Finger Tapping lick which obviously takes a lot of getting used to, but the real reason I make these videos with quite advanced licks is because even though they take a lot of focus and practice I experience that they really inspire in general to play and practice more. Of course if you are a beginner you will also need some more beginner stuff to practice to get some faster results and successes....
